Collection: The Man Who Would Be King

"Friend to a Prince, and fellow to a beggar, if he be found worthy..."


In 1975, director John Huston made Brother Rudyard Kipling's short story, "The Man Who Would Be King" into a classic, old-fashioned adventure film. Sean Connery and Michael Caine are, respectively, Daniel Dravot and Peachy Carnahan, a pair of lovably roguish British soldiers who set out to make their fortunes in the Middle East. Through a lucky turn of events, the priests of remote Kafiristan make Dravot a king when they learn he is a Freemason by seeing the Masonic jewel around his neck.


The location of the original jewel unfortunately is unknown. This jewel we sell has been created at The Master's Jewel, and weighs about 14 grams, and is 1 3/8" Wide from tip to tip of the square. 1 5/16" tall from bottom of square to top of bail (ring at top). The Thickness varies from 3/32" to 1/8". The reverse is smooth polished and has ample room for engraving. Each pendant is packed with a 20" chain.
