[Q 216] Regulations for Men’s Silver Rings


Is the ring only permitted if it contains a stone?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب بعون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


(For men) Only a silver ring (weighing less than one Mithqaal, i.e., 4.374 grams) that is classified as a men’s ring is allowed, meaning it should have just one stone. If it has multiple stones, even if it’s crafted from silver, it is not permitted for a man. Similarly, it’s not allowed for men to wear more than one ring or wear a Challa (a ring without a stone) since that doesn’t qualify as a ring. (However), women are allowed to wear Challa (a ring without a stone).
