WEARING OF THE TERCENTENARY JEWEL

To All Brethren in the Province from the Leicestershire & Rutland Provincial Secretary - 15th March 2018
A number of Brethren have queried the continued wearing of the Tercentenary Jewel, and I thought that some guidance was required now that the Tercentenary celebrations have finished.
   In June 2016 the Grand Master designated the Tercentenary Jewel as a Permanent Jewel and it 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 was at any time a member of a Lodge under the United Grand Lodge of England in the period from 24th June 2016 until 31st December 2017 is so qualified. Entered Apprentices and / or Fellow-Crafts during the qualifying period are entitled to wear the Jewel as soon as they have been Raised.  
   The Pro Grand Master hopes that Grand Officers will continue to wear it.
   If applicable, a Royal Arch Jewel is worn on the left breast nearest the centre of the body. The Tercentenary Jewel is worn next to the left of the Royal Arch Jewel, but if a Royal Arch Jewel is not worn then the Tercentenary Jewel will be on the left breast nearest to the centre of the body. A L& R 2022 Festival Jewel can be worn to the left of the Tercentenary Jewel, and if applicable a Past Master’s Jewel is worn next to the left of the Festival Jewel ( nearest to the left arm).
   Brethren are also reminded that it is not now permissible to wear a L&R Festival Jewel of a previous Festival, i.e. 2012 or 2002 Festivals. In similar vein the Provincial Grand Master hopes that only the L & R 2022 Festival Tie is worn, and not previous Festival versions.
   The Provincial Grand Scribe E wishes for Brethren to be advised that the wearing of Craft Past Master’s Jewels is not permissible at Royal Arch meetings.
