I have a pin box from over 30 years ago when I was first initiated in the sorority but this item has been very difficult to find to give as gifts until I saw one listed on the M&D Sorority Gifts website. Oh My Goodness! This pin box is absolutely BEAUTIFUL , engraved with the Sorority Crest and is tarnish free. The pin box is bigger than I expected. There is room to to include your pin, guard and another piece of Alpha Kappa Alpha jewelry. If you are looking to give a lasting special one of a kind gift that will be cherished by the recipient for years to come, this pin box meets that criteria. This item is definitely worth the cost. You won't be disappointed!
