Do you guys know if all rings need to be purchased online or can we by some from another location?

Thanks,

Joseph

You can buy them anywhere you can find them.  There are jewlers who specialize in fraternal jewelry, and some general ring makers will make Masonic rings.  There are NO rules to buying a Masonic ring.  An atheist woman from Saudi Arabia can buy a Masonic ring from a pawn broker in Sweden as far as the Freemasons are concerned.

... she just can’t wear it. At least, not where I live—it’s against the law.

She can if she wants to.  Freemasons can’t stop her, that’s my point.  Whether or not she gets stoned for it is another issue!

Update:  I am about a week away from my 3rd degree.  It takes place on May 5th and I am really excited!  I will be sure to keep my eyes and ears wide open.  I have had an amazing time and experience during the other 2 degrees and I have a feeling this one will be just as memorable.

Ah, that’s right.  Your big night is approaching.  We are rehearsing for it tonight as a matter of fact.  You’ll find it memorable to say the least, and we’ll top it off with some steak tips and shrimp skewers with a delicious French Fusion wine for your trouble!

I’m looking forward to your MM just so your signature info will be complete! It looks so unfinished stopping at FC.  ;-)

Just teasing - good luck to you, Brother!

72 hours and counting. The EA and FC degrees are extremely important as they are the beginning of your journey and a glimpse into a more wider range of thought. The experience of the Master Mason Degree you will carry with you, every minute of every day, for the rest of your life. Enjoy the experience my Brother.
