To mark the Tercentenary of the United Grand Lodge of England, the Grand Master has approved a special jewel, which will be available from the start of the three-hundredth year on 24th June 2016.
The jewel will be a permanent jewel and may therefore be worn by qualified Brethren of the English Constitution for the rest of their lives.
The jewel may be worn only by Master Masons (and above), but any Brother who will at any time between 24th June 2016 and 31st December 2017 have been a member of a Lodge under the United Grand Lodge of England will qualify for it. (Those who are only Entered Apprentices or Fellow Crafts during that period will be entitled to wear the jewel as soon as they have been Raised). The Jewel is available from Toye, Kenning & Spencer, Newton Road, Bedworth CV12 8QR and can be ordered online here.
