When you think of hip-hop music, there is likely a singular name that pops into your head immediately. If that name isn’t Snoop Dogg, we’d be shocked to hear whoever you had in mind.
Snoop Dogg is by far one of the most famous and influential names in the rap game, having been a staple of the genre for decades. He’s known for his original songs, but he’s also got some amazing features on the songs of others. On top of that, you’ll find him in countless movies and TV shows when he’s not lighting up a joint in his dressing room.
For an icon like Snoop, we’d like to think that he’s got himself a pretty insane jewelry collection. Let’s take a look at some of his most memorable pieces so you can get an idea of how to craft a look of your own.
Death Row Chain
Snoop Dogg has tons of different high-value jewelry items, but one of his most prominent is one that he wore during the halftime show of Super Bowl LVI. Just days after he announced his acquisition of Death Row Records, a record label originally founded by Dr. Dre, D.O.C., and Suge Knight, Snoop unveiled a stunning Death Row pendant on national television.
The pendant is one of the most detailed pieces we’ve ever seen. It consists of big, bold, diamond-studded words labeled “Death Row Records.” But in between is a dog sitting on a throne, all covered in diamonds and gold to enhance the royal status of the piece. This is one of those pendants that feels more like a work of art than anything else.
This piece took inspiration from Snoop’s 20th studio album BODR(which stands for Bacc on Death Row). This album features 18 tracks and some of the biggest names in rap, including Wiz Khalifa and The Game. The album cover features a dog dressed as Snoop sitting on a throne, so this pendant is almost a perfect replica.
Reportedly, the piece contains over 250 grams of solid gold and over 13 carats of natural VS diamonds. We can’t even imagine how much it cost him, but it was definitely worth it when over 110 million viewers worldwide tuned into his halftime show alongside Dr. Dre, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.

Snoop Dogg Jewelry Collection
While the Death Row Records piece is a tough one to top, Snoop has a vast assortment of different jewelry items at his disposal.
Let’s take a look at his entire collection so you can see what true hip-hop royalty looks like.
One of the more iconic pieces in Snoop’s repertoire is his Bengal tiger pendant. We honestly don’t have any idea what it represents, but it’s one of those situations where it really doesn’t matter. This is a highly detailed piece that swaps the orange stripes of a tiger for golden, diamond-encrusted layers.
It goes to show that not every piece of jewelry needs to necessarily have a meaning. While we’re sure this piece can symbolize his inner strength and his tiger mentality, it can also just be one of those pieces that look super cool.
If you’re looking for an item that isn’t meant to be taken too seriously and is only meant to amp up your outfit, we’ve got you covered. Jewelry can mean as much or as little as you want it to, and this Iced Panda Pendant in white gold is purely meant to take your look to the next level.
While it might not be as sinister as a Bengal Tiger (though pandas have been known to hold their own), it will still make just as many waves at your next function.
Tru Tank Dogg Pendant
When we say that Snoop Dogg has been in the business for years, we really mean it. One of his classics, “Tru Tank Dogs,” was released over 20 years in 1998. To commemorate the launch of this release, Snoop can be seen wearing a “Tru Tank Dogg” pendant around his neck.
This pendant is covered in solid gold, and it looks like it probably weighs over a pound. The center of the pendant depicts a highly detailed embroidered tank that shows the world that Snoop Dogg is a force to be reckoned with.
Purple Drank Necklace
Purple drank is a slang term for lean. And when Snoop isn’t using marijuana for recreation, you can see him sipping some “sizzurp” from the bottle.
So, he teamed up with King Ice to craft a custom “purple drank” pendant so he can always get a refill whenever he needs it. This piece consists of a golden cup filled with stunning purple diamonds spilling out the sides.
Once again, Snoop makes it clear that he’s only here to have a good time, and this is a piece that will get the party started no matter where he goes.
Last but not least, Snoop Dogg essentially pioneered the idea of wearing a marijuana leaf around your neck. You’ve probably seen people wearing a bud around their necks everywhere you go, and you can thank Snoop D-O-double G for this one.
His leaf pendant is simple enough yet iconic. Covered in solid gold, this pendant somehow feels pristine and polished despite the actual subject matter that it refers to. And if your parents ever ask you what it represents, you can always just say it’s a symbol of your love for the great country of Canada.
If you get yourself a leaf pendant, be sure to get yourself some leaf earrings to bring the whole look together.
Snoop Dogg is one of the most iconic names in rap, and his jewelry collection is just as iconic to match. From an insane death row records chain to a highly detailed Bengal tiger pendant, Snoop knows a thing or two about looking the part.
And while it’s impossible to be Snoop Dogg, you can get yourself close by finding similar styles in our vast collection of high-quality hip-hop jewelry. From rings to bracelets, from pendants to watches, we’ve got everything you need to craft a look that even Snoop would be jealous of.
