    Now i wear mine all the time. When it was passed down to me, (belonged to my grandfather who purchased it in 1970) I didnt wear it all the time because it is very specal to me and did not want anything to happen to it. Then after much thought, I decided to wear it all the time because he wore it with pride for 30 years before he passed and it is still in great shape. It is old school, not stones just 14k gold with the emblem in silver.

    What does your ring look like? I'm looking for an everyday ring to wear.

    If you look at the picture it looks pretty much the same even though I wear everyday. The only thing that has happened to it is the bottom of the band is a little scratched and the 2nd word on the top is a little flattened out. It has held up really well. I picked it up on ebay from a store called secret of art. They have several to choose from and their prices aren't all that bad.

    I have 2 rings. The first was my great-grandpa's that he bought when my grandma graduated high school, then about 25 years later he gave it to my grandpa and my grandpa presented it to me when I was raised to MM. I usually wear it all the time, but not at work. The other is a Shrine/Scottish Rite/Blue Lodge ring that I wear to Shrine and Scottish Rite meetings.

    I wear it the same way that I wear my wedding ring. That is pretty much everywhere, everyday. I take it off when I work out in the gym or if I am preparing a meal for the family from scratch.

    I wear my $12 dollar EBay ring (lol) at work, and usually most social gatherings. I was broke and still am, having just started my job today. I'll get myself a new one eventually. It's all kinds of scratched up though...

    ring

    Last the I checked you didn't need metallic substances to be a Mason. Don't worry about cost.

    All the time except work, regulations prohibit any rings.

    I have to agree with a few brethren and say that, as a delight it is to wear a ring that's been passed down or meaningful, mineral or metallic substances do not make us the upright men we are today. I know, pulling out the book haha, but I have to agree. I'm involved enough within my district that people either know already I'm a Mason, or ask me about it because I take so much time out of the week for 2-5 lodges not including their DeMolay and Job's chapters/etc. so wearing a ring isn't something I see necessary. Most of the people I work with I could care less if they knew, and when I do go out, I often don't want to be the center of attention (or speculation) so I reserve my ring for bigger events. Just so happens that those events are usually Masonic anyhow haha.

    I wear mine when I am not at work. I cannot wear it at work. Plus it would get dirty anyways. Any chance I had I wear my Masonic ring.

    Every day, everywhere I go. I put off joining for too long and receiving my MM degree remains one of my proudest moments. There is only one proper way to wear it - with pride in yourself and honor to the Craft.

    I purchased my Ring from Reiner's Jewelry here in Houston. Mr Reiner is a Mason, and gave me a very good deal on my S & C Ring, as well as my pendant. Being that I am a Patrol Sergeant with Houston PD, I don't wear jewelry at work, with the risk of damaging them when struggling with suspects. However, I wear my wedding band and Masonic Ring at all times when off duty, unless asleep or cooking. Bro Vincent C Jones, Sr. Bayou City Lodge 228, PHA, F&AM, Houston, Texas
