Madeleine Albright has another pin to add to her collection.
Stucci Jewelers of Natick presented the former US Secretary of State a specially designed commemorative pin during a ceremony Thursday at Wellesley College.
Albright has hundreds of pins and has recently written a book, "Read my Pins: Stories from a Diplomat's Jewelbox.''
Albright was at Wellesley to speak at the dedication of the Madeleine Korbel Albright Institute For Global Affairs. Master craftsman John Harwood made her pin from a combination of precious metals and a unique application of a semi-precious stone, according to a press release.
“It’s in the shape of a globe, about two inches across, and the lapis has been crushed
to create a blue background representative of the oceans of the world,” said Stucci Jewelers owner Gary Stucci in the release.
This week, Albright attended functions kicking off the Albright Center, which features 40 Albright Fellows studying at Wellesley, according to a release from the College. She also attended a Wellesley basketball game.
"I have to say, pretty much everything that I have done has something to do with Wellesley because I loved it," she recently told New England Cable News. "It was a fabulous college for me. I knew that I wanted to be a political science major but I also learned the importance of questioning things. I gained a sense of confidence that I attribute in large part to attending a women's college."
