Rue’s 1953 Diamond and Pearl Kappa Alpha Theta Sorority Pledge Pin [SOLD]

This is an absolute treasure! Rue’s college sorority pledge pin, and it is inscribed with her name – Eddi R. McClanahan – and the date she pledged on the back. It is a kite shaped pin, measuring about 27/32″ tall and 5/8″ wide. It weighs 3.4 grams and is made of 10kt gold, with two genuine diamonds in the stars and 23 pearls around the perimeter (there are supposed to be 24 but one of them has fallen out at some point over the last 59 years!). It comes with a 4″ x 6″ print of her wearing her sorority Greek letters on her collar in college, and a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue. We must admit, this is a very difficult item to let go of, but this is what Rue wanted.
