Secrets of Masonic jewels are revealed in London exhibition

LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (SEPTEMBER 18, 2018) (REUTERS) – London’s Museum of Freemasonry is launching its first major exhibition of masonic jewels in the UK.

“Bejewelled: Badges, Brotherhood and Identity” was unveiled at a preview for the press on Tuesday (September 18) and showcases more than 150 jewels from the museum’s collection.

It includes masonic jewels from around the world, including the UK, India, Zambia, Chile, the USA and beyond.

The jewels are specially crafted badges worn by freemasons.

Among the jewels on display is one owned by Queen Victoria’s eldest son, Albert Edward, the Prince of Wales, before he ascended to the throne as Edward VII.

The special jewel associated with the Authors’ Lodge, whose members included Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Rudyard Kipling, also forms part of the collections.

The exhibition opens to the public from Thursday (September 20) at London’s Freemason’s Hall.
