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.


OPAL BADGE!!!!!!!!!!! want

No special chapter president's badge for us. As I've noted in the Badge Trends thread, the jewels on our badge are standardized and the only option we have is in the quality of the gold, so design-wise, we all wear the same badge.

This is true. I come from an older chapter (just turned 100 this past June!) and we have a beautiful older president's badge. It is larger than the member's badge, flat, has emeralds instead of pearls and 3 small pearls on each side of the moon tips. It also has a chapter guard with emeralds and the president's gavel dangle. On the reverse side it says PRESIDENT ALPHA ALPHA. I wish I had a picture of it. There was also a President's ring but it went missing when we moved offices.

WhiteDaisy posting this beauty in the "Badge Trends" thread made me wonder if there are other sororities out there with a special Badge for the National President (or equivalent) to wear?


I've heard that the DZ National President's Badge is a little bigger than the standard badge and the six wings on either side of the lamp have diamonds in them. I've never seen it, but would love to if any of my sisters have a picture or a link!

The Alpha Gamma Delta International President is given a 14 diamond badge [as opposed to a 14 pearl badge] upon installation. Only the International President can have an all diamond badge.

Our International President wears the above badge and the Council Members (VPs) wear this badge (sorry it's not a great photo):

^^I've seen that DG council member badge in person - it's stunning!

Sigma Nu posted this on facebook yesterday. I'm assuming it's their International President's badge because of the size and the gavel guard, but the post wasn't specific.

In our chapter, the present and former commanders can wear this:



This is the ordinary, standard issue badge:



Here's what I wear:



You can't really tell from my pictures, but the Commander's badge is about 2x as large as the ordinary one. It is sometimes referred to as the frisbee.

I don't believe there is an official president's badge at the Chapter or National level for Alpha Xi Delta.

Like other orgs. have mentioned here, a chapter can own a badge that is given to each president to wear during her term. My chapter had an antique one that was given to us during our installation.

The national president wears this:


It's hard to see but it's a gold medallion featuring our CoA with a president's gavel above it. Each link in the chain represents an established chapter of Alpha Xi Delta.

I saw it in person (at my Installation and DePaul's installation). It's pretty huge!

I heard or read somewhere that AOPi chapter presidents get a ring to signify their position. I really wish we had something like that; it's a wonderful idea.

Here is our Collegiate Chapter President's ring https://hjgreek.com/assets/images/pr...arge/58346.jpg

We also have an Alumnae Chapter President's ring now, thanks to some very dedicated APs!

Makes me want to become an Alumnae Chapter President just so I can get that ring!

Gamma Phi's International Council members all get special badges to wear. The President's badge has diamonds, all others have pearls. The badges have a white crescent and are larger than our regular badges. I don't have a pic of a Council badge next to a regular badge, but below is a pic of a Council badge next to her sweetheart Phi Delta Theta badge, if that helps. (And you can all be jealous that my alumnae chapter has former Council members, including a former President, so I get to see these badges with some regularity! ) Sorry the pics aren't better!!!

Our International President has a larger ADPi pin, with diamonds. TWO rows of diamonds. I'm convinced it's purpose is to mesmerize we lesser mortals into doing her will!

Standard issue:



Here's the available upgrade for the general member badge:


I wish it was just standard issue. :/

This is the Chapter President's badge:



The Grand President's badge is surrounded by diamonds. He's the only living member who is allowed to wear a heart surrounded by diamonds.

Also, each of these badges is gradually larger than the next.
