Thank you! We love our badge too! I know you love your ivy as much as we do! As for NPC, I absolutely love the KKG keys!

As for fraternities, I have always loved the plain Alpha Tau Omega badge and the plain Sigma Chi badge. The fact I love Sigma Chi's has always kind of baffled me. I am most definitely not religious in any way, and the badge is all "Hi, I'm a cross." lol. Not something I would think I'd be drawn to, but I really am. I think it's something about the white enamel. It stands out so much compared to everything else.

I am leaning towards this one though:
I've got this badge! I wear it on a necklace sometimes that is a circle with a dogger through ut diagonally, with the pin in the middle. I love it.

I would definitely get this one for so many reasons.


I am obsessed with crowns and the color pink, my nickname is Themis, and the ZTA letters look very similar to my local sorority Zeta Iota Lambda.

I love my key, but I also really like Alpha Xi Delta's quill and Pi Phi's arrow.

ETA: After perusing the Badge Trends thread, I love that onyx Theta badge - OMG gorgeous! Also, loving me some Tri-Delt and Gamma Phi crescents. Also, someone posted a photo of a white & yellow gold AOII badge with a ruby. Can I just play pretend and get one for each of the sororities?

Don't you remember that cool happy proud feeling when you got your badge?

OK - your nickname is Themis? How did that happen? Sounds like an interesting story.

Yes it is lol. I got it after pledging my local sorority my freshman year. I can't really explain why since it's secret as it's mostly pledging-related, but part of the reason was that Themis is the goddess of justice and I was a political science major planning to become a lawyer at the time.

If not my beautiful Gamma Phi badge it would have to be Tri Delta's.

Can't hide my love of crescents! And I LOVE the trident stick pin!

With regards to NPC sororities other than my own:

AXO or AXiD's badges are both gorgeous and easily identifiable to boot. I also really like KD's badge, as I love emeralds, and Theta Phi Alpha's and Sigma Kappa's pledge pins (the snake sigma on the SK pin looks very cool). I've always been intrigued by Gamma Phi's use of Hebrew on their badge as well.

I'm not a plain monogram badge fan, to be honest, although I've seen some really nice jeweled ones online.

I also love it when an sorority's color(s) and/or official jewel(s) are in a badge, but I think it's also cool to get colors of your alma mater.

This Pi Phi badge gives me some serious badge envy...


I can't seem to find a pic from HJ, but I think the ADPi badge in white gold with aquamarines is gorgeous.

I don't like Theta badges with colored stones because I think it detracts from the black and gold simplicity. I think it's as beautiful plain as it is with diamonds and/or pearls!

if I can't have my beloved diamond, I would have to go with either the Theta kite, the AXiD quill or AOPi's monogram, especially this one....so pretty!

New badge thread? I'm in!

This was hard for me to narrow down, but I was able to get a top four. In alphabetical order:

Beta Theta Pi and Delta Tau Delta are favorites for the same reason - that inward swooping curve. I just love the shape, and also have tremendous respect for both of these organizations.





Lambda Chi Alpha, I think the crescent is so graceful. I would have picked the amethyst lambda badge; it's a stone you don't often see in the fraternal world, and it's my mother's birthstone, so I have a soft spot for amethysts.



The White Cross of Sigma Chi is so unique in the fraternal world. That white enamel is so distinctive, and imagine how subtle it would be on a white dress shirt.



The runners up for me were Phi Mu Alpha, Pi Kappa Alpha, Kappa Alpha, and Phi Delta Theta (the common denominators here being garnets and/or shields).

If we did a gender bender it would be Gamma Phi Beta in any style, and Alpha Delta Pi coming in second!

I love the key, anchor, and lyre.

If they were just ordinary jewelry, I would totally wear them as brooches. Actually I wouldn't turn down the arrow, kite, quill, or crescent with stars and trident as a brooch either. But I have to put the top 3 in the top 3. There's something exquisite about the key. And I just love the realism of a tiny gold chain wrapped around an anchor like a rope.

Chasing beats jewels for me in general -- a chased key might be my #1 choice.

I'm a little partial to DTD's badge myself.
