Jewelers Masonic Guide
We understand that not everyone who makes masonic jewelry is a freemason so we have put together this helpful guide so you can design jewelry relevant to our fraternity.
The Square and Compass - This is the symbol of a master mason, it is universal and you can't go wrong putting it on masonic jewelry.
The Square and Compass and Quadrant / The Compass and Quadrant- You see this symbol with and without the square depending on where you are. It is the symbol of a past master. A comprehensive line of masonic rings would include versions with these symbols, but never both on the same ring.
The Shriners Symbol and the Scottish Rite Symbols (Two Variations, wings up and wings down) are also in demand.
All of the above listed symbols are in widespread use. There are dozens of other symbols that are used much less frequently. You can see these by looking at any of our custom rings.
If your designing with precision, the square should always be precisely 90 degrees and the compass should be precisely 60 degrees.
The compass should always be on top of the square or quadrant so that portions of the square and quadrant are obstructed by the compass. The compass is never obstructed by anything.
WHO CAN BUY: It's ok to buy masonic items as gifts for people you know who may be freemasons. It's not ok to pass yourself off as a freemason if you are not a member. In fact, doing so is illegal in many areas.
