  3. Hi The big medal with the blue ribbon is a good Past Masters jewel which might be Hallmarked Silver or gold.The White ribbon Jewel is a Royal Arch Jewel and the other two Jewels are Charity Jewels issued each year, Chris.
  4. Hi. Looking at the Jewel i would also say this is not a Masonic Jewel. I would say its an R.O.A.B. Jewel.But i will look in an old lodge guide i have wih a list of all the lodges in to see if it's a Masonic jewel. Chris
