FWIW, I never, ever heard our plain pin referred to as "the poverty pin" until GreekChat. What's important to most ADPis is the black diamond in the middle - just as our pins come in so many different options, our sisterhood includes women from many different backgrounds as well. In the end, we're all sisters.

Some chapters will only allow aquamarine, blue topaz, or sapphire points, but most will allow almost anything, including opals, and most birthstones.
