Am I the only one who can no longer view this badge? It really was here moments ago...

I can never get images to post, but, someone posted in the Alpha Xi connection page on facebook, trying to figure out a badge. It's chased gold, shaped like a Phi, with pearls down the center of the Phi. There's a small Chi on the left side of the Phi and a Pi on the right side. Any thoughts?

Looks like the best I can do is the link

^^^Boy, that badge looks familiar but I don't recall how or why.

I imagine it's either Phi Chi Pi or Chi Phi Pi.

The closest looking thing I can find is the Chi Phi pin, but that doesn't explain the Chi and Pi on the sides, unless that was chapter designation. It doesn't look damaged though, where the Chi would've perhaps broken off.

Generally in badges like that, the Phi is the last letter. So I imagine it is Chi Pi Phi. The design is very similar to the badges used by Beta Sigma Phi, Alpha Pi Phi, and some others I recall seeing before.

Help!

Can anyone identify this coat of arms? The necklace belonged to a graduate of Samford University in the 1960s.

If you don't mind my asking (and if it's not secret) does the ruby have any significance?
Sorry I'm just now seeing this... The ruby/diamond Chi Omega badge is extremely rare since after 1906 on pearls or diamonds are allowed. Prior to 1906, a member could select any stone.

Exciting News!

One of the antique dinner rings from the collection in the Chi Omega Archives has been reproduced by Herff-Jones and is for sale through Chi O Creations. The first picture is the antique ring and the second is the replica. The stone is camphor glass and the setting is white gold.

Is it mother of pearl? It truly is beautiful. I need an ADPi necklace of equal beauty to wear daily.
