It may have cost you, but you have clearly tried to recoup your costs by selling you badges to GC members for inflated prices whiles playing one member off another. People talk. PMs don't stay private for long. It's not that big of a community.

You don't profit from the sales of badges? If that's true you're a really piss poor businessman. Otherwise, bullshit.

Oh, we know who you are Chrys.

Ok, what's the fact you have? The only non 1800s pins I'VE bought were old high school pins and maybe a local.....

Cool it, everyone. Time out. Stop. Talk about badges so we can keep this thread unlocked.

I'm not in the "business" like others are. I acquire a few older pieces, usually at very high prices. I have yet to "profit" off of anything. I'm way in the hole and will always be such. This idea you girls have of what I'm about, regardless of "it's a small community" and whatnot is completely incorrect.

I'm here soley for historical reasons, and the occasional chit chat of current issues.

But, in the past I made the mistake of offering old yearbooks and items that I knew others have to GC members, trying to get the items into members hands and those interested in historical subjects (for the yearbooks). But realized that GC is to be used for information and not for this.

So, I've had to rely on other avenues.....like others do.

But I'm sure that the several members here who have started "Greek" businesses, as seen at the tops of pages, aren't "profiting" off of GC members either.

Did you not see that DBB asked to "cool it"? Please, just stop.

Came across this picture on Pinterest.

It's the National President's badge and is passed down for each term.

Regarding chapter guards for Delta Zeta, the last time I checked we could order guards either plain, chased, with pearls, or with opals. My badge (stolen years ago, sob!) had pearls on the guard.

I know we can get quotes for special badges from H-J, through our IH ordering contact. I got a quote for an all diamond badge, which isn't an option on the site, but they can do it.

I know that picture…I took that picture! (I had posted it before, too, but I'll never complain about seeing it again. )

I also have this goodie to share. pas mentioned the picture of one of our founders' badges being in the first pages of our 100th anniversary history book, and I had taken a pic of it at my collegiate chapter's fall initiation, when I first had a chance to look at it. I've since purchased my own copy, lol. But anyway, here is that badge!

UNARose or AlwaysSAI, what is the significance of the two chapter guards on the national president's badge? It's lovely! And do you know what those colored gems are in the photo of the founder's badge?

Thanks for sharing!

They're the Philanthropies Board (green stone) and National Executive Board (diamond) guards. As for the colored gems…though I don't know for sure, my first guess would be that they are rubies. Second guess would be garnets. They're red, though. All of the current jewelry pieces that are official that have red stones use rubies. I'll look in the history book later and see if it says specifically though. Things could have changed a lot in a hundred years.

I love the founder's badge. The Pan flute looks like it has tiny seed pearls at the top of each. I guess that is just the way it photographed.
