Men Wearing Stainless Steel Rings

Q: Are men allowed to wear stainless steel rings?

Men are allowed to wear rings made of silver only. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi wasallam) wore a ring that he used as a seal on correspondence, etc. The Khulafaae Raashideen (Radhiyallaahu Anhum) also wore rings for a similar purpose. This need does not apply today. We do not use rings for this purpose (i.e. applying seals or emblems to correspondence, etc) anymore. Although permissible, some jurists are of the opinion that if a ring is not worn for this purpose, then it should not be worn at all. Stainless steel rings will not be permissible to wear.
