I recently lost my grandmother, and among her belongings was a ring. At first because if it’s size we assumed it belonged to her, but upon some digging I’ve discovered that it’s most likely a man’s pinky ring. I’d trying to find the history behind this ring. Also among her things we found volumes of the Encyclopedia of Freemasonary, so we’re assuming my grandfather was a mason. If anyone can shed any light on what i have, I would greatly appreciate it.
Hi there. First of all, my condolences on the loss of your Grandfather.
As for the ring, it is not specifically a masonic ring necessarily, although the skull and crossbones are sometimes used as a Masonic symbol in some lodges. Also the initials SBH don’t ring a bell Masonically. Were these your Grandfather’s initials? Lastly, the number at the bottom appears to be a 37. Can you confirm this? If so, there is not significant meaning to the number 37 in Freemasonry that I can think of.
