An application from the lodge, stating the sister's services clearly, is sent through the nearest Canton to the Department Council of the jurisdiction. If the application is approved, the lodge is informed to purchase the jewel. The jewel has an oval-shaped bar with a diamond on a six-pointed star attached to the pendant with a link chain. The pendant is a cross in white enamel with a gold rim centered with a red heart and a raised gold crown. The presentation ceremony includes a ritualistic washing of the hands.
