The Museum of Freemasonry is delighted to announce the first major exhibition of masonic jewels in the UK. Bejewelled: Badges, Brotherhood and Identity will showcase over 150 jewels from the Museum’s collection of masonic jewels from around the world, including the UK, India, Zambia, Chile, the USA and beyond. Freemasonry is one of the world’s oldest and largest non-religious non-political fraternal and charitable organisations, and the jewels in this exhibition represent the full history of freemasonry: from the opulent gold and green of the Authors’ Lodge jewel which included members such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Rudyard Kipling, to the Prince of Wales Lodge jewel crafted in secret by prisoners of war in Singapore during World War II, to the elegant pearl-adorned jewel for the Women’s Grand Lodge of Germany. The finely crafted jewels on display will give visitors incredible insight into how freemasonry has endured and evolved over the past 300 years, as well as signifying the lodge, rank, personal identity and interests of a freemason, or a special event or a charitable act.
