To my knowledge, ADPi doesn't have a standard Chapter President pin. My chapter president wears a Founder's Pin, regular pears, and a fancy guard.

The Delta Chi "A"'s badge (chapter president) is the standard black enamel badge, but it's twice the size (one inch compared to half an inch). Some chapters may pass them down, but mine did not. I chose not to buy one when I was "A" because I thought it was too large and gaudy looking.

I'm in the same boat as you! I probably wouldn't have known about the really old president's badges had I not gone to RLC, actually!

Interesting piece of Theta history/trivia: in the 1950s and into the early 1960s, for chapters founded in that time frame, the Fraternity had President's badges created using the original die(s) from the founders' badges. Seriously. I have no idea what clasps were used, but assume they were modern ones. I have not seen any of those President's badges; my own chapter was founded in 1950, but I do not recall a specific President's badge.

It would be interesting to track down those chapters and see if those badges were still in the chapters' possessions. (grammar nerd runs off to check use of apostrophes and plurals, feel free to step in and correct me, GC grammar police!)

This is the SAI chapter president's ring. Our chapter doesn't have this, but I wish we did. It's a pretty ring.

I seem to remember when I was chapter president, the president's badge had a different stone, but I may be wrong. I lost it, and felt guilty for a couple of years until I could reimburse the chapter and allow them to replace it. Anyone remember a badge with a different stone? I was thinking emeralds, but I'm not sure that makes sense, since jeweled DG pins are always only pearls or diamonds.

^^^I did not realize/know that DG used a different jeweler. WOW those are some amazing choices in jewelry you guys have. Have you seen the quality on these badges from jbrandt?

Man am I ever on the "jealous of everyone else path" today. Need to adjust my attitude.

My chapter was founded in 1955 and while I remember that the president's badge was different from the rest, I can't recall what exactly was different about it. I'll email the current president and see if she will be gracious enough to take a picture. (provided, of course, that it is still the same badge...)

No President's badge in my Chi Omega chapter, but, we did have a beautiful yellow gold gavel (about an inch in length) with the crest affixed. It was passed down year after year, but is no longer a part of the chapter tradition. Someone must have lost it along the way.

A funny story when I was chapter president and wearing the necklace, a guy noticed the charm and thought it ws a lawnmower!! I said, "Why yes, I'm lavaliered to a yard man."

Wow, I'm really enjoying looking at these gorgeous badges and rings! All those different TriDelt badges (especially the chased one with blue stones) are beautiful!

Cool. Thanks for sharing, although I would have thought that most chapters would see to it that the pears were a little more special, maybe at least from Harry and David.

Just gently kidding, of course.

Well, a pair of pears is always nice.

It may be more exciting, I just don't remember it. Our Founder only died in the past 10-15 years (she was about 100 years old, seriously!), so we didn't even have that when I was around.

There's a President's ring available, but it used to be a normal ADPi ring. I haven't figured out how to cut & paste with this laptop yet, so I'll have to post it from another computer.

I think it would be really cool if our Archons (presidents) had a special badge. Hmm maybe an Alumni key? Or even a jeweled badge with garnets on it?

When I was president, I wore a badge that was a mixture of the two below. It was larger and flatter than the regular badge. It was chased like the first one with a chased chapter letters guard and a gavel dangle. It had opals like the second one below, but they were smaller going up the sides of the crescent. The three stars had larger opals. I think mine had white enameled letters, but I'm not 100% certain of that. I was told it was a copy of an early badge, but I don't remember the details now.

I had a lovely yellow cable knit sweater that it looked especially beautiful on. The opals just glowed against the yellow sweater.

I wore that badge all the time for almost two years, but don't have a single close up shot of it.

I'm not a terribly materialistic person, but man. I loved that badge.

It is a bit larger, flatter and with blue stones compared to the standard badge.

Standard badge:


Couldn't find a picture of my chapter's president's badge, but it is similar to the Field Consultant badge:

It was massive, had opals up the crescent, and had opals in the stars, if I'm correct. I was stunned by how unique it was, and when I asked her about the badge, she said that it was a founding sister of their chapter's badge!
