Centenary Jewels

When a lodge can demonstrate one hundred years of continuous working it can apply for a ‘centenary warrant’ and its members are allowed to wear a centenary jewel. A decorative bar is available for bicentenaries.

The earliest jewels were different for each lodge, but in 1865 a standard pattern was established featuring a snake biting its tail, symbolic of eternity, combined with a rope knot without an end and ‘C’ the Latin letter for 100 all within a sky blue border with the name of the Lodge. There have only been one or two variants to this jewel since the 1860s.
