Wearing Gold Jewelry

Source: Fatwa Online: Gold Jewelry: Ruling concerning circular shaped gold jewelry

What is the ruling concerning circular shaped gold jewellery?

It is permissible for women to wear either circular shaped or  non-circular shaped gold jewellery. This is based on the general meaning of the verse, {[Do they then like for Allaah] a creature who is brought up in adornments [wearing silk and gold ornaments, i.e., women] and in dispute cannot make herself clear?}, [al-Zukhruf 18]. Allaah has mentioned that wearing jewellery is a characteristic of women. This is general and covers gold as well as other jewellery. Furthermore, Ahmad, Abu Daawood and an-Nasaa.ee record with a good chain from the Leader of the Faithful 'Alee ibn Abu Taalib that the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) took silk in his right hand and gold in his left and then said, ((These two are forbidden for the males of my Nation.)), In the narration  by Ibn Maajah, it ends, ((And permissible for its women.)) Also, Ahmad, an-Nasaa.ee, at-Tirmidhee-- who said it is saheeh-- Abu Daawood, al-Haakim-- who also called it saheeh-- at-Tabaraanee and Ibn Hazm- who again said it is saheeh-- all record from Abu Moosaa al-Ash'aree that the Prophet (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said, ((Gold and silk have been made permissible for the females of my Nation and forbidden for its males.))
