Wearing the Tercentenary jewel

Wearing the Tercentenary jewel

There are new guide lines, which take immediate effect, relating to the wearing of the new Tercentenary Jewel.

The Jewel can be worn by any member of United Grand Lodge of England, who is a member between 24th June 2016(launch date) and 31st December 2017. Anyone initiated between those dates can purchase the Tercentenary Jewel but will not be eligible to wear it until they have been raised. The Jewel can be worn by Master Masons, Master and Past Masters, Provincial and Grand officers.

How it should be worn in the Province of Yorkshire North & East Ridings.

The Royal Arch Jewel should be worn closest to the centre of the body and it is recommended that the Tercentenary Jewel be worn along from the Royal Arch Jewel. It would therefore take precedence over a Past Master's or Founder's Jewel. The Tercentenary Jewel should not be worn at Royal Arch meetings.

The MW Pro Grand Master in his launch address at Quarterly Communications in June 2016 encouraged Grand Officers to wear the Tercentenary Jewel during the Tercentenary year and that they should continue to wear it in perpetuity if they so wished.
