    International Badge Day (Video)

    Your Badge Says You Belong.

    Our Name Says It Will Endure For Generations!

    What is a badge? It’s a small piece of jewelry sorority and fraternity members wear close to their hearts. It is a new member’s first tangible symbol of membership, of belonging. The intrinsic meaning of a Greek pin or badge goes far beyond the metal and jewels used to create it. It serves as a lifelong reminder of when the brotherhood or sisterhood journey began. It’s a reminder of initiation day, when a gleaming badge was first pinned over their hearts.

    Honoring the historic tradition of intricately crafted jewelry for sororities and fraternities, Herff Jones is deeply honored to serve as the official jeweler to more than 150 national and international Greek-letter organizations, helping to preserve the storied heritage and artistry of Greek jewelry.

    Please enjoy this short video showing how sorority and fraternity badges are made, as we join you in celebrating International Badge Day, March 4, 2020.
