The D’Addario Foundation’s Elevate Necklace: Jewelry That Helps Make Music Possible 

Victoria Wasylak • Supplier Scene • November 13, 2019

The 501c3 non-profit D’Addario Foundation, in collaboration with Heartstrings Jewelry, is elevating quality of life through access to music. The Elevate Necklace is a newly-commissioned, exclusive guitar string necklace that gives back.

The Elevate Necklace transforms retired D’Addario guitar strings into a sterling silver pendant wrapped with acoustic or electric strings and engraved with the D’Addario Foundation’s heart symbol of community support. The pendant is set against an adjustable, sterling silver chain. One hundred percent of the proceeds from each Elevate Necklace goes toward financing community music programs in areas of need through the D’Addario Foundation’s grant-making initiatives.

The necklace is available in 3 platings: dark silver with phosphor-bronze string, black with phosphor-bronze string, and gold with electric nickel string.

Michelle Dall’Acqua, lead designer of Heartstrings Jewelry, shares her vision for the piece: “Every set of strings represents someone’s passion, joy, favorite song, or maybe a memory of someone they care about. Elevate is a beautiful reflection of the meaning we assign to music. It’s a unique showpiece for people to privately cherish or share their stories with others. When you take home an Elevate Necklace, you’re giving the gift of music.”

The Elevate Necklace made its debut at the D’Addario Foundation’s Back 2 School benefit, and can now be purchased online.
