Avon Highest Award pin; can anyone tell me about it?

I have a couple an Avon award pin that belonged to my great aunt, and I'd like to find out more about it. It says "Avon Highest Award", and has a gold disk with black enamel and an 'A' set with 5 diamonds. The back is stamped Balfour 10K. There's a smaller pin attached by a chain, absolutely gorgeous--gold with black enamel, with a gold star in the center with 5 diamonds at the center. I'm guessing this might be a 50 year award pin (my great-aunt sold Avon for more than 50 years, and retired in the late 1980's), but I haven't been able to find anything even similar to compare it to. Any information about this pin would be greatly appreciated.

The silver with aqua enamel pin was given to all Reps for identification. It says "Avon Products, Inc., Avon" on the face of the pin. According to the Hastin's book, the value of this pin is $30 if it is in mint condition. The other pin is very similar. It was gold plated with aqua enamel and was given for $250 in sales.
