The earliest badge design was what is now used as our new member pin. In 1894, the triangle badge was chosen. Jeweled badges were approved at the 1915 convention when the pearl was adopted as our national jewel. Unjeweled badges have a scroll edge.
The new member pin is a Greek letter Sigma shaped like a serpent intertwined through a K. In 1920, this design was officially adopted as our new member pin.
The alumna pin was adopted in 1978. It is a small triangle pin of maroon enamel with ΣΚ etched in gold. It is worn as a lapel pin by alumnae.
The family pin is the Greek letters ΣΚ in a small hollow triangle enclosed in a gold circle. This pin is for all family members or caregivers.
A gold circle pin etched with Sigma Kappa is given to fifty-year members. It is worn encircling the triangle badge.
The twenty-five-year pin is a silver violet surrounded by an open triangle with the numbers 25 in the middle of the violet and the Greek letters Sigma Kappa set to the left side of the triangle.
The seventy-five-year pin is a golden violet surrounded by an open triangle with a diamond in the middle of the violet and the Greek Letters ΣΚ set to the left side of the triangle. Presentation may include a display frame or case.
The Ernestine Duncan Collins Pearl Court Award is designed to recognize alumnae who are, and have been, the backbone of our chapters. Pearl Court is awarded on a national level, gives uniform recognition, and is not limited to one recipient per biennium.
