The little black thing it's pinned on is called a "Badge Buddy". SAIs use them a lot. Once I get it organized the way I want on my badge buddy, it stays there. When I need to dress in formal badge attire, I put on the badge buddy.

I will say that every time I add something to my badge, it takes me a really long time to get it the way I want it. I am very particular about the way my badge looks.

Not gonna lie, first thing I did was go search the national website to find which guard that was, and then which position—congrats on that! That guard looks lovely with all of the rest!

[QUOTE=misscherrypie;2399160]I don't think that I've ever posted photos of my Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pi badge. All of our badges originally come in two pieces. I remember that the diamond shaped portion with the paw and Magen David is to be given to a new member before her initiation, and then the banner with our letters is attached after initiation.





This is such a unique badge. Thank you for sharing.

I didn't see any mention of Alpha Sigma Alpha or Alpha Chi Sigma, so here y'all go!

ASA badges are yellow gold and plain, crown pearls, crown pearl with ruby points, crown diamonds, or crown diamonds with ruby points. Several people, including myself, also wear guards. The guards can be plain gold or crown pearls. I personally have the crown pearl with ruby points and a pearl guard. We were given the option by our NME to choose which one we wanted as our dues covered the badge. I had the plain badge with no guard, but upgraded after initiation.

In my Alpha Chi Sigma chapter, we all wear the plain badge, but it is available in crown pearl with ruby, emerald, aqua, or sapphire points as well. We also do not wear guards. Our dues covered the badge and we were not given the choice of a jeweled one, but I can't think of anyone who has ever gone out of their way to upgrade the badge. I tried to include a picture, but I couldn't get it to work.

Yes! That's what it looks like. Mine is plain and has no guard, so it's slightly smaller.

Rare Chi Omega Badge from 1901



It wasn't until 1906 when the Convention voted only pearls and diamonds allowed in a Chi Omega badge, so prior to that date, a woman could choose the stones she desired. This ruby/diamond badge is a stunner!

uh, Nut - that link you posted doesn't work either (the way you have it here). Back to the drawing board with you!

Nut, your first post has an image that says "Update your account to enable third-party hosting." The second one appears to be raw HTML instead of BB code.
