Women Wearing Imitation Jewellery

Question

Is it permissible for women to wear all forms of imitation jewellery?

Answer

With the exception of a ring, a woman may wear jewellery made from any substance.  Hence, she will be allowed to wear necklaces, bangles, etc that fall under the category of imitation jewellery. As far as a ring is concerned, she may only wear a ring which is made from gold or silver.
