Selling artificial rings

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I read in Behashti Zewar that it is not permissible for women to wear artificial rings.

1. Since I was unaware of this ruling, I already have many such rings that I used to wear. What should be done with those rings?

2. I have given rings as gifts to many women in the past and my jewellery business gave me profit from selling artificial rings. Will I be sinful for this? What should I do now?



1. You can discard them or sell them away.

2. Notify them that it is incorrect.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
