- May 9, 2011As a personal note, since these are proposed as "lodge" rings. Most of
us who wear such rings search for a design which means something special
to us even though there are certain common symbols. The use of
"standardized" colors (and especially colors which were not part of
period heraldry) of arbitrary determination puts me off. Frankly, this
blatant imposition of modern sensibilities has made me decide to avoid
consideration of the rings.
