Alpha Gamma Delta works with a specialty jewelry company, Herff Jones, to produce all of our official jewelry including Badges, guards, emblems, awards and other accessories. Most items can be found on hjgreek.com. These items are not sold by the Alpha Gam Boutique. Many items are not kept in stock, but produced at the time an order is placed. This means there can be a 6 to 8 week wait time on all orders.
Badges are available on Herff Jone’s website for any initiated member. If you are an initiated member looking to replace a Badge or order a new Badge, you can do so here. Once an order is placed with Herff Jones for a Badge, it is reviewed by International Headquarters to verify membership. A family member or friend can still place an order for an initiated member.
