Black Hills Gold Masonic Rings

What are Masonic Rings?

Masonic rings are rings for 'Free Mason' believers or followers. The ring is usually worn in the right hand. In the past, to avoid suspicion of any cult activity, members wore the rings in secret. When in public, they wore the ring facing the palm of the hand in order to hide the crest. The Masonic rings have a design mostly of a square or compasses. By wearing this ring, the Free Mason follower is promising to live his life full of virtues and good deeds seeking the knowledge of life. He also promises to protect the teachings and beliefs of his community. Free Mason community though has different lodges with varying belief they all share a common goal. Hence the Masonic designs vary slightly but have the same square and compass theme.

How to wear a Masonic Ring?
Should a person wear the ring with the points of the legs of compass facing him or with the points of legs facing away from him? According to Masonic Service Association of North America, it can be worn either way. The 2 points of the compasses may point to the Mason to remind him of his obligation or the 2 points of the compasses may point toward others to show an outward sign of the wearer's authenticity as a Master Mason.

As Gold is considered as one of the precious metals in the world, most of the Masonic Rings are made of yellow gold or white gold. However, pure gold is not recommended for Masonic Rings, as they are very soft and malleable. You will find Masonic Rings made of 10k, 14k or 18 k Gold as well as sterling silver.

  2. It is interesting that the ring can be worn either way. I have a friend who is a Mason. He wears the ring facing him. Hopefully, whichever way it is worn, it helps the person remember their obligations. https://www.jpluther.com/swhat.inq?sdrop=MRDE&sprimary=MR&ssecondary=DE
