Mariska Hargitay asked Designer Robin Renzi to create a new pendant for her character Olivia Benson on her TV show Law and Order: SVU. The idea for the pendant, a compass is that Olivia Benson has a superhuman element that gives her the strength and the heart to do this work, like an inner compass. The compass has 4 letters L, C, J and E and represent Love, Compassion, Joy, and Equanimity, the Four Immeasurables, a Tibetan Vow that encourages us to focus our attention on helping others, emphasizing the importance of Love (Maitri), Compassion (Karuna), Joy (Mudita) and Equanimity (Upeksa). The compass was gifted by Detective Elliot Stabler to Captain Olivia Benson on the 2023 season finale of Law and Order: Organized Crime.
This recycled sterling silver pendant measures approximately 7/8" in diameter on a 16,18", 20" or 22" sterling silver chain with a medium square lobster clasp.
