Perfect for men
This beautiful Innovato Design silver ring has bright gold accents and is the perfect gift for any man in your life. The geometric detailing adds a funky feel to this design and will certainly be a talking point. This masonic ring is highly symbolic. The Freemasons logo adorns the top of the ring, and so this is ideal for anyone who is a member of the Freemasons or who believes in their founding values. Freemasons are one of the oldest organizations in the world. They are not affiliated with any religion or political stance but have a common set of core values. These are integrity, kindness, honesty, fairness, and tolerance. The wearer of this ring will, therefore, be associating themselves with these characteristics. Safe to say, this is a very positive ring.
The Freemasons symbol depicts the working tools of a renaissance or medieval stonemason. The letter G in the Freemasons symbol stands for two things: God (the divine - the Great Architect of the Universe) and Geometry. Geometric rules are symbolic because they apply to all languages, cultures, and places. What a great symbolism for a ring! Whether wearing this ring because of this symbolism or simply because it’s a beautiful ring, the wearer will certainly be making a statement.
Sun and Moon symbols
These are used frequently with jewelry both for symbolic reasons as well as aesthetic reasons. For a lot of people, just seeing the sun and moon is a sight of beauty and they choose jewelry with these symbols because of the beauty in the shapes of these celestial objects.
Life wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the sun. What a great power to have! There’s no wonder the sun has been a popular symbol on jewelry both now and in the past.
Ancient civilizations used the sun to symbolize fertility and vitality. Some cultures used the sun as a sacred symbol and worshipped it like a God. For the Ancient Greeks, the sun was the eye of Zeus. For the Chinese, the sun was the ultimate Yang, the great male attribute that was associated with heat and heaven. Native American tribes often depicted the sun in their stories that were passed down generation after generation.
The sun has long been a symbol of rebirth, power, and strength. Many also see the sun as the start of life in that it rises and life begins and sets upon death.
For millennia, the moon has captivated people with its mystery and its beauty. In many cultures, it has been seen as the opposite of the sun, the ‘Ying’ to the ‘Yang’, as it were. The moon is associated with females in both Chinese and Western cultures. It is seen as a representation of passing the time due to following its cyclical calendar. The moon can also represent calmness, tranquility, and peace. The different phases of the moon also have their significance. A waning moon symbolizes surrender and letting go. It denotes acceptance of loss. A new moon symbolizes rebirth and fresh starts. A waxing moon symbolizes attainment and growth.
The sun and moon together
Together, the sun and moon symbolize unity, even with opposites, and other ideals such as cooperation, and rebirth.
The sun and moon together feature quite heavily in masonic rituals. They are seen as the powers of the sky, the sun being the day, and the moon being the night. They are said to symbolize all of the things that are opposing in this world. Just like day and night, they symbolize hot (the sun) and cold (the moon), light (the sun) and dark (the moon), life (the sun) and death (the moon). Despite their drastically different sizes in real terms – the sun being 400 times larger than the moon – the sun and the moon appear exactly the same size on planet Earth. This strengthens their symbolism as perfect opposites. What’s more, the sun and the moon share a day between them, with about 12 hours being shown each. These reasons are often why the sun and the moon are held in such high regard. After all, there are so many coincidences that people believe they could have only been created by the divine.
The sun and moon in Christianity
In the first book of the Bible, Genesis, we are told that God made the sun and moon on the 4th day. The sun and the moon in Christianity are symbols of light and power to shine through the darkness, just like good overcomes evil. The sun is also representative of Jesus Christ and his glory and radiance on the crucifix. In crucifixion scenes, the sun is often depicted to the right, whilst the moon is on the left. This could be referring to the fact that the old testament (the moon) is making way for the new testament (the sun). They could also represent the sorrow of Christ’s death.
Also, in Revelation, the Virgin Mary is described by St John as having the moon beneath her feet in his vision. This was often used as a symbol of chastity. What’s more, it is believed that the Virgin Mary was being described when St John talked about ‘a woman robed with the sun’ in this same chapter of the New Testament.
