    Hello Brothers.

    Both of my rings.
    The "raw" steel/beaten ring I found on etsy.com, it is claimed to be old and vintage, but I cannot confirm or deny that. I don't mind that one taking a little bit of abuse.
    The gold ring I found at a local jeweler, and given the build and condition it seems to be from the 50's or 60's. It was picked up at an estate sale by the jeweler, so I'm assuming it was worn for years by a mason.

    It's cool knowing that you're taking a ring from a fallen brother, and whoever he is, carrying it onto the next generation. It certainly gives it more meaning when wearing in my opinion.

    I hope to pick up a "cheap" steel, titanium, or tungsten band with a more discreet square and compass in the future, for general purposes.

    I say its your ring wear it the way you want. In college I was told to wear the school name, Norwich, so I could read it until graduation. I was then told to turn it out so others could read it. Lots of Masonic ties to Norwich. But people know what it is either way you wear it. Find what you like and run with it.

    I brought this one off eBay and it is sitting in my bed side draw until the appropriate time as to when I'm raised as a MM.

    I like it as it's simple and not too flashy, just like me :)

    Is it okay to purchase your ring before becoming a Master Mason? I realize it's inappropriate to wear something that hasn't been earned yet, but...I just stumbled upon a heck of a deal on eBay. It would be a shame to pass it up. Very sharp looking ring, and it gives me something to look forward to!

    Sure no harm in buying it. Like you said, can't wear it yet though.

    I'm not a MM yet, but when I am, I hope to wear my ring all the time.

    I say "hope" because I'm not a huge fan of wearing jewelry. I'm allergic to nickel, which is found in most jewelry, and gold especially is out of the question for me. Discovered that in high school when I ordered a very customized class ring and could never wear it. My wedding band is stainless steel, and even it bothers me on occasion. That said, my choice in Masonic rings is more limited, but I have still found a lot of styles that I like. In fact, I've narrowed it down to three sterling silver rings:

    1.jpg

    1. I like this one a lot. It has a very classic look, and the black makes the symbols really stand out. My only concerns with this one are the black wearing off over time, and the level symbol could be misidentified as...well, something else. There is a trowel symbol on the other side. About $200.


    2.jpg

    2. This one is similar, but more subdued. Trowel on one side, 3 pillars on the other. About $200. This is the one I'm leaning towards. No black to wear off, and no custom text, so it is something I could pass on to my son someday.


    3.jpg

    3. And finally, this one...which is about $300. The increased cost is because you can customize the text with your own lodge name and #.
