The Significance of the Masonic Ring

Of the many traditions and ceremonies associated with Freemasonry, most of them use unique objects which are bestowed with symbolic meaning by the Brotherhood. Masonic rings are very symbolic objects and perhaps the most common outward sign that its bearer is of The Craft. While most are worn on the right hand, previously Masonic rings were worn in secret, hiding the wearer’s identity from the public to protect their associations from detection. Historically speaking, a Freemason could be executed if he allowed his identity to be revealed.There are several styles of Masonic rings, most of which carry a crest or image which incorporates the square and compass motif. The square and compass designates common knowledge which is shared by Freemasons and is regarded as an Oath towards living a life of virtue and righteousness.
