Answered by Shaykh Ilyas Patel

I’ve read somewhere that it is not permissible for women to wear rings made from metals other than real gold and silver. But then somewhere else I read that it is permissible for a woman to wear rings made from any type of metal. Which is correct?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

Allama Ibn Abidin (Allah have mercy on him) quotes Imam al-Haddadi’s al-Jawhara al-Nayyira, which is a commentary on Imam Quduri’s Kitab that wearing a ring made from metal, brass, copper and lead is offensive (makruh) for both men and women.

Also he mentions further that there is no problem wearing a ring made of metal which has a coating or covering of silver such that the metal itself cannot be seen. (Allama Ibn Abidin, Hashiya ibn Abidin pg 360)
