The meaning of a masonic ring

by fanssteel

What is the meaning of a masonic ring ?

Masonic rings are popular among men because they have been a seal of distinction for centuries. Modern day Freemasons wear their rings as a symbol of loyalty to their Mission and their Values.

To understand the true meaning of these handsomely crafted rings it is important to explore a bit more about their Mission and Values. As a curious minded person, one should never hesitate to ask the wearer of a ring about it's meaning so that you can receive a personal explanation, but in a nut shell the Mission is that each man has a responsibility to improve himself while still being devoted to his family, faith, country, and fraternity. The Values of the Freemasons which reflect their Mission are comprised of high ethics, a tolerance for differences in religion, cultures, ethnicities, and social / educational backgrounds.

In addition, one should strive for personal growth, philanthropy, a strong sense of family, and freedom as described in the United States Constitution. The ring of a Freemason is one way that they can recognize each other in public. It is an outward sign that they are a part of the world's oldest fraternity and that they share similar values of this brotherhood. Simply put, the ring is kind of like a discrete version of a secret handshake!
