Gold Plated Rings


I’ve received a ring as a gift which is stainless steel double plated in 18 carat gold .. Is it permissible for females to use? 


Yes, it will be permissible for women to wear a ring which have been plated with 18 carat gold. If the carat content of the gold is more than half in a ring, it will be regarded as gold and if it is less than half, then it will not be considered to be gold and will not be permissible to wear.  The same applies for silver, that the silver content be more than half. Since 18 carat gold contains 75 per cent gold and 25 per cent other metals, it will be classified as gold and hence permissible to wear.
