Because our wholesale fashion jewelry pieces include masonic rings, we decided to put the spotlight on this brotherhood. So what is Freemasonry? It is the oldest and widely recognized fraternal organization in the world. It was founded in London, England in 1717 and today, it has millions of members worldwide. A goal of Freemasonry is to unite men of good character who share a belief in God or a supreme being and the brotherhood of mankind regardless of religion, ethnicity, and financial status. And as with any organization, they have their share of benefits. With that said, here are five of the many benefits of becoming a mason.

One obvious benefit of being a mason is fellowship and brotherhood. These men spend quality time together by taking trips, watching live music, doing sports activities, going out to dinner, and many other activities.

One can join a music band, a sports club, a dining club, a biker club; there is one for every man. No one can feel left out in this brotherhood.
