I wanted to find out about the necklace worn by Olivia

on my favorite show: Law & Order: SVU so I did a search for it on a9.com. Eventually I found Mariska Hargitay's official website. The necklace she wears on every episiode is from the organization she founded called The Joyful Heart Foundation.

It's pretty amazing actually. A quote from her site: Mariska says,
"After taking the role of Detective Olivia Benson on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, I began to realize that the effects of an assault linger long after the bruises have healed.

So I became a trained victim's advocate through the Mt. Sinai Sexual Assault & Violence Intervention (SAVI) Program and started to speak out and help raise awareness surrounding the issues of sexual assault and domestic violence. "


I've been perusing her site & she's a pretty neat person it seems in her personal life off-screen. Very creative and inspirational.

Anyway, I just thought this was worth sharing...and definitely makes me glad that I decided to search to find out about the necklace.

Now I am going to go sit with my husband and finish watching the basketball game...
  1. I can't thank you enough for finding out the info about the necklace "Olivia" wears. I have been to a ton of websites and jewelry stores trying to find it. Unfortunately I cannot afford the $415.00 for this necklace and never in my wildest imagination, thought it would be that expensive. Domestic violence affects every woman in some way. I do agree that it is for a great cause and would truly love to be able to purchase it someday. My search is over...
