White Honor Cords

White Honor CordsContents and Description

White Honor Cords come as a set of twisted cords, with a tassel on each end of the each cord (for a total of four tassels). The honor cords are shipped tied together, or separately, at your option. Each half-cord is around thirty inches long, measured from knot to end of tassel (about sixty inches long when spread out rather than folded at the knot). Each tassel is about four inches long. Honor cords are made from rayon (we do not offer silk). You can mix and match different color cords together. Alternative names for these products are honors cord, honor chords, and honors chords.

Typical Uses

These white honor cords are typically used for recognition of individual achievement and participation. They're generally worn during a commencement ceremony. Honor cords (chords) are used by colleges, universities, community college, high schools, and some middle schools and homeschools

Who Buys Honor Cords

Usually purchased by a member of an honors society, fraternity, sorority, or department recognition coordinator. Also for Valedictorian, summa cum laude, magna cum laude, or cum laude awards.

There are, of course, more honor societies that use white than those listed above. Many also use a close variation to that color. In addition, there are other recognition organizations, such as Greek orders and clubs, which offer honorcords for commencement ceremonies. If your honor socieity or other organization uses white, and is not listed above, please drop us an email and let us know and we will add your name to our list. We can also add a special page just for your honor society, club, or organization, at your request.

This White Color

We offer two variations on white colors for school honor cords, this one and eggshell (off-white). If you are looking for a darker white, we suggest you go with the eggshell (see link below).

Shades of white include: Buff, Latte, Flax, Light, Seashell, Baige, Cream, Drab, Ivory, and Magnolia. White or silver represents brightness, innocence, purity, and virtue. It has also represented royalty, and is often associated with cold, snow, ice, and the moon. For graduate hoods and academic regalia colors, white represents a degree in History, Literature, Arts, English, Letters, and Sociology.

While hoods, stoles, and related items are usually restricted to wearing just one at a time as a suppliment to the rest of the academic dress attire, multiple honorcords can be worn at the same time. You can even wear multiple sets representing two or more honor societies. Many schools and colleges use two-color or three-color combinations of colors intertwined, and Academic accomodates such combination variations in our ordering procedure. Ultimately, your honor society, club, order, or organization makes the decision on which colors to use in your ceremony.
