Things to Consider While Buying Muslim Jewelry

Islam is a fast-growing religion. In the United States, every year more people are choosing to call themselves Muslims than member of any other religious group. Islam, which means ‘peace’ in Arabic, is growing and the increasing number of Muslims is piquing the interest of many people – Muslims and non-Muslims.

Muslims are increasingly becoming aware of their religion. They are attempting to practice it in the way they think is the right manner. It means that many of them have started observing Islamic festivals and customs, and a large number of them are opting for Islamic jewelry and clothes when they are available.

This article focuses on Muslim jewelry. It suggests what things to consider when you are buying Islamic or Muslim jewelry. The article has been divided into two parts:

– Religious considerations

– Pragmatic considerations

The article looks at what religious and pragmatic considerations that people going to buy Islamic jewelry can take to stay in line with the recommended Islamic way and reduce the chances of fraud.

– Religious considerations

Islam does not encourage extravagance. Therefore flaunting expensive jewelry is considered immodest. At the same time, Islam does not prohibit wearing gold, silver, or diamond jewels – especially for women. If religion is a priority for you, here are a few precautions you can take to ensure you do not go against the prescribed norms:


In general, women can wear any kind of jewelry. So they are freer here. They can opt for rings, bracelets, lockets, necklaces made of gold, silver, platinum, diamond, and other materials.


For men, it is more complicated. Men are generally not allowed to wear gold jewelry (although there is much controversy over this interpretation). Silver is considered safe. As a man, it is safer to buy jewelry that has been designed for males.


Some Muslims frown upon drawing images of people or animals. Yet, there is a long history of calligraphy in the culture. So jewelry without images does not necessarily mean a compromise on aesthetics. Both men and women can opt for Arabic calligraphy jewelry.

– Pragmatic considerations

When you are buying Arabic calligraphy, or another kind of Muslim jewelry, it is considered pragmatic to seek vendors who have a reputation for honesty and customer service, and the quality of whose products speaks for themselves. Testimonials, about us pages, and return policies are an effective method to figure out if it is wise to deal with that seller.

Islamic jewelry is in vogue in today’s America. It is popular among both Muslims and non-Muslims. Many people are taking religious and pragmatic considerations into account to buy their own authentic Muslim jewelry.
