The chapter of Delta Chi at my school had the tradition of having the big brother pass down their badge to their little, and then they would buy a new one for themself later. Definitely a different way of doing things.

As for AST, our badge fee is included in our dues, and we get the most basic form of the badge (without pearls). I actually can't find a picture of one online. Any member can also get one later with pearls:

Then there are three other badges:

National staff members can have rubies at the four points
National coucil members can have emeralds
And past and present national presidents can have diamonds

I believe in the values of friendship and fidelity to purpose
