UNUSUAL Double chapter Fraternal bracelet eastern star and white shrine of Jerusalem
THis neat old vintage bracelet must surely have a lot of history behind it. This bracelet's owner belonged to both the Order of the Eastern star and The WHite Shrine of Jerusalem. Membership in the Order of the White Shrine of Jerusalem consists of ladies who have a relationship through birth, marriage or legal adoption to a Master Mason in good standing or who was in good standing at the time of his death in some regular Masonic Lodge, as well as members either active for three years or majority of the International Order of Rainbow for Girls or Jobs Daughters International who have attained the age of eighteen (18) years of age. As far as the Members of the Order of the eastern Star, originally a woman would have to be the daughter, widow, wife, sister, or mother of a master Mason, but the Order now allows other relatives as well as allowing Job's Daughters, Rainbow Girls, Members of the Organization of Triangle (NY only) and members of the Constellation of Junior Stars (NY only) to become members when they become of age. To be a member of both was quite a responsibility so this bracelet would have been a real honor to own and wear. One side has the enamel eastern star motif and the other the rhinestone cross with shepherds hook behind it. THe bracelet measures 7" long,is in great condition and has a rhinestone clasp.
