    It looks cool but I can respect that its a PH thing.

    It's not exclusively a PH thing. I have my grandfather's ring, it's red. We belong to "mainstream" or "white" Masonry (we need better lingo, that all sounds so pre-civil rights era and so racist). Anyway, my grandfather is no longer around for me to ask him why he chose a red ring.

    Yeah, that's kind of why I figured it was personal preference. Mine is blue, it was my grandfathers also. If it was rsd, I'd still wear it to honor him.

    I got a custom ring made; it's not the traditional S&C. ImageUploadedByFreemason Connect HD1377312189.087827.jpg ImageUploadedByFreemason Connect HD1377312206.475483.jpg ImageUploadedByFreemason Connect HD1377312228.201751.jpg

    There are some beautiful rings on here. I've got a question, Brethren. Has any Brother gotten a ring tattooed on his finger? I've actually considered doing this, and if any Brother has...would love to see some pics of it!

    I just got my ring the other day. Seeing as we're on the subject of rings, my wife is joining the OES next month and I'm wanting to get her either a ring or necklace and was hoping if a brother might be able to recommend a vendor that has something that doesn't look cheap (I've seen a lot of rings that look nice but the enameling for the star looks a little sloppy) nor cost me one or more house payments worth of cash. And said wife might kill me if I get her the one I'd like her to have and the preservation of life is winning out right now.

    Take care brothers.

    This ring belonged to a Brother who was Raised in '39, and while I know his Masonic history, I don't know the history of the ring. I purchased it in '08.

    I wear the masonic ring my father purchased in 1951, four months before my birth. It is red. The belief that this is Prince Hall is mistaken. Nor do I believe it to be emblematical of Scottish Rite (first three degrees) masonry. My father was raised in a blue lodge in Crowley, Louisiana. Not sure, but personal preference is more probable. I've seen blue, red, black, silver, and gold rings upon the hands of brethren from various jurisdictions through the years.

    I have purchased several Masonic rings on eBay, with very good deals. I also purchased my wife's OES ring and other Masonic items through eBay.

    You can get some really great deals there if you watch for the end time and slide in a bid just before it closes.

    Make sure you Read, read, and re-read the item description before bidding, the pictures don't always show problems with items.

    Best of luck Brother, hope it all works for you.

    I would say that's a Masonic Firefighter's ring.

    I was all set to get a finger tattoo on my ring finger. I have to take my ring off on occasion when I work so I liked the idea of having a finger tattoo that my ring would cover but then would be easier seen with the ring off. The tattoo artist I talked to said the the work I wanted was too small and would blend into a big dot. Guess I'm going to have to get a bigger ring so I can cover a bigger tattoo or think of something else.

    The previous owner was neither firefighter, nor police. Firefighters generally use the cross-shape found on their helmet badges.
    I've heard at least one historian claim that the shield represents an 18th-century style Apron, which were closer to this shape.
