YAY! BT got bumped! And that Alpha Phi badge just made my jaw drop (did you hear it?).

Maybe I'll poke around Pinterest and see what comes up?

At Theta Grand Convention there was a display of some items from the archives, including badges. No point photographing them through the glass display case, but wow... just beautiful. Some Dyers of course.

What I'd love to see and hold is one of the original Founder's badges.

Amethysts! So pretty!

I wish we could do more options on the KD badge.

So I didn't make it to convention after all, but my limited edition badge was shipped from Hreff Jones today and being that I live close to their place in Rhode Island, I expect to get it tomorrow or Wednesday and then will have some emerald and pearl (christmas tree - like) NPC Sigma Kappa Limited Edition fun to share with you all. What did those of you who made it to convention think of it?

I admit it, I got excited when I saw that you posted in this thread. I was hoping it was a photo of the badge. Guess I'll have to wait a few more days.

I found this 1912 photo of Burr, Patterson & Co.'s shop in Detroit. Look for the signs on the second floor.

I'm sorry to break this to you, but apparently NHQ and Herff Jones aren't communicating well and thus it'll be a little bit until I can share, though the woman I spoke to from NHQ says that the silver badges are beautiful and came out much nicer than she expected : )

Anyone ever seen this one?

Former Chi Omega National President badge. Yellow gold with diamonds mounted on an outline of the crest. First presented in 2008.

Searching for craft ideas on pinterest and ran into this...I DIE. If we were allowed to put other stones on our badges (and I had the money...while my parents help with dues, I had to pay for my badge myself) I would have killed for a badge with opals. KILLED.



circa 1890

LOVE OPALS! Glad to see this thread getting some love.

(Sorry IndianaSigKap. I don't have it yet. It should have been shipped today)

You knew exactly what was going through my mind when I saw you posted in this thread. I may be almost as excited as you are to receive that badge!
