    I try to wear a MM ring, every time I go out. I have a stainless-steel ring that I wear when I work overseas. And I have my Grandfather's heirloom ring, for special occasions. And I have an "everyday" ring that I wear in the USA. I have a gold-plated Shriner's ring, that I wear when I attend Shrine functions.

    When I got raised my wife purchased a masonic ring for meto replace my wedding ring that I thought that I had lost. So I wear mine allthe time except at work for fear of a de-gloving injury.

    All the time. I have already cracked the stone and lost the Square and Compasses once and had to send it off to a jeweler and have them replaced, but I still wear it 24/7.

    Pretty much every time I leave the house, but I do mix my Scottish Rite "Yod" ring into the rotation.

    I have three MM rings. One is pretty traditional with a gold S&C set in a black stone, one is our Lodge ring from Brother Gordon Spurlock (like this one, except with our Lodge information obviously)
    lodge_ring_monticello.jpg and one that's pretty stylized with the working tools, S&C, acacia branch, etc. all worked into a cast silver design.

    ImageUploadedByMy Freemasonry1384780547.390958.jpg I was given rings belonging to both of my Great Grandfathers on my Fathers side of the family. I wear this one all the time except when I might be using heavy tools. The other I wear for special occasions.

    I take off my PM ring when I sleep. i don't take off my wedding ring for sleep. I voted all the time but for me it's really all the waking time.

    I have a stainless ring I wear most all of the time except when I am going to a "dress up affair". Then I have a dressier gold ring that my wife gave me when I was raised that I wear. It is too nice and way too expensive to wear every day in Dallas (for obvious reasons)

    I've worked enough jobs where a ring becomes a liability, so I don't wear jewelry to work any more. Steel and titanium are much stronger than bone, and forbidden on many job sites.
    My present ring is 60-70 years old, and I only wear it when I "suit up."

    I try to wear my blue lodge ring as much as I can, but though beautiful, it is a bit bulky and needs to be taken off when I do manual work. My Scottish Rite ring however doubles as my wedding band so I keep it on throughout the day taking it off at night. ImageUploadedByMy Freemasonry Pro1399440583.866429.jpg

    If it's not a huge affair I wouldn't worry about it. Those not in the know probably won't notice it anyway. Good luck on the interview!

    Chances are it won't be noticed. In the small chance that it is noticed and it triggers a negative reaction, is that an environment you would want to work in? Eventually your colleagues will notice that you wear the ring every day. I figure finding out early on would be dodging a bullet and avoiding a bad job.

    My attitude on this carries my bias as an American where we are very open open our membership. As you wear your ring every day it probably works. Would you change rings to a class ring or similar for work? I long ago decided to wear Masonic rings instead of class rings.

    I wear mine everyday, all day, except the shower and when I can't due to my job. (Safety). I have had very few people pick up on it. Most mistake it for a wedding band even though I wear it on my right hand.

    It is interesting to note that brothers in Europe do not wear rings.
    ...from what I have seen anyway.
