Assalaamu ‘Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuh.

It is not permissible for a man to adorn himself with silver nor gold, nor any other metal or stone. However, he is only allowed to wear a SINGLE SILVER RING, the weight of which should be less than one mithqaal (4.68 grams).

Jewellery is known to be a means of adornment. Beautifying and adorning oneself is a trait of a woman and thus not suitable for men. Resembling and immitating women in any way is abhorred in Islam. The silver ring is permissible as wearing it is proven from the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in various Ahaadeeth narrated in authentic books of Hadeeth.

And Allaah knows best.
