Famous Mason Of The Day
Albert Pike was born on December 29, 1809 in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1833, Pike settled in Arkansas where he worked as a school teacher and author. Four years later he began to study law, passed his bar exam, and began working for the Arkansas Supreme Court as a reporter. In 1840, Pike became a member of Western Star Lodge #2 in Little Rock, Arkansas. He later became the Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Southern Jurisdiction. He retained this position for the remainder of his life. During his 32 year reign, he spent much of his time focusing on the development of the order's ritual. Pike is best known for publishing Morals and Dogma Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry in 1871, which remains an eminent and influential work among Freemasons today. Pike died on April 2, 1891 at the age of 81 in Washington D.C.. His remains now reside at the House of the Temple, the Scottish Rite Southern Jurisdiction headquarters.

I was notified of shipment of my ring on Friday, March 6th received it on Monday, March 9th. Great shipping service!
My order was for the Blue Lodge ring, model (359176) in 14k Yellow Gold with a solid back and blue stone. Basically a simple, classic, timeless style. I must say I am extremely satisfied with it. The quality and color is beautiful. The masonic symbol on the stone is detailed and very striking. I dare say it is a delight to look at, and with which to display my Masonic pride.
Order was placed on a Sunday, so counting as you could do nothing until Monday, that made delivery to my door in exactly 5 weeks. Very happy!
Thanks for all your follow through, and creating one very happy customer make that 'repeat customer'!
