Types of Masonic Signet Rings Part Two

Posted in Uncategorized on 25.10.10 by Merlyn

The Masonic ring is first made with no ornamentation on its face. The symbol that the wearer would like to display is then engraved upon it. Other Masonic signet rings include the Knights Templar, the Scottish ring and the Shrine ring. The Knights Templar ring features a symmetrical cross in the center. This ring signifies freemasonry’s lineage claim to the Knights Templar, who protected Christian crusaders on pilgrimages to the Holy Land.
The Scottish ring is a plain band of gold with an equilateral triangle enclosing the Hebrew letter Yud, the initial of a deity. The inside typically reads, “Whom virtue unites, and death will not separate.” The Shrine ring displays a sword and a crescent.
As there are many variations of freemasonry, there are also many different kinds of rings. These include Blue Lodge, Eastern Star and other branches. There are certain rules and etiquette involved with wearing Masonic rings. First, only a master mason should wear a ring. The ring is also generally worn on the third finger of the right hand. In addition, unless the master mason is a member of more than one branch or lodge, it is considered unseemly to wear more than one Masonic ring.
