Short Answer: There are no real secrets anymore...
Many masons will tell you that the real secret of the freemasonry is that there is no secret, but that was not always the case. Hundreds of years ago stone masons could build magnificent cathedrals and castles using techniques and skills that were closely guarded. Passwords and grips were used in liu of id cards to prove to other craftsmen that they were qualified to work alongside them and produce sound, stable and safe buildings. Although no longer relevant outside the scope of the fraternity, speculative masons continue to hand down these traditions.

I was notified of shipment of my ring on Friday, March 6th received it on Monday, March 9th. Great shipping service!
My order was for the Blue Lodge ring, model (359176) in 14k Yellow Gold with a solid back and blue stone. Basically a simple, classic, timeless style. I must say I am extremely satisfied with it. The quality and color is beautiful. The masonic symbol on the stone is detailed and very striking. I dare say it is a delight to look at, and with which to display my Masonic pride.
Order was placed on a Sunday, so counting as you could do nothing until Monday, that made delivery to my door in exactly 5 weeks. Very happy!
Thanks for all your follow through, and creating one very happy customer make that 'repeat customer'!
