‘Sopranos’-Worthy Jewels in Celebration of the Show’s 25th Anniversary


Twenty-five years ago this month, The Sopranos premiered on HBO and revolutionized television storytelling. The drama, created by David Chase, brought a cinematic quality to the small screen, exploring Mob life and family dynamics with psychological depth.

Commemoration of this milestone anniversary is a testament to The Sopranos’ enduring impact on pop culture in general and television drama in particular. The show’s fashion—particularly, the jewels and their styling—have stayed relevant too: Chances are you’ve heard about the trending Mob wife aesthetic or seen it all over your social media.

Inspired by The Sopranos (as well as organized-crime movies like Goodfellas and Casino), the Mob wife aesthetic fuses sophistication and edginess, embodying a blend of power and allure. It features bold fashion choices that strike a balance between strength and femininity—luxurious, tailored outfits, dripping in opulent jewelry.

From oversize gold chains (see today’s take on the styling, known as neck mess) to diamond-encrusted pieces, jewelry worn on The Sopranos were a visual expression of the characters’ lifestyles and extravagant taste, and added authenticity to their portrayals.

We’ve rounded up some jewels reminiscent of those seen on the show—Carmela’s cross necklace and Tony’s signet ring, among them. Quiet luxury what?
