The Lajnah ad-Da’imah was asked the following question:
Is it permissible for a man to wear a silver ring?
Yes, it is permissible for a man to wear a silver ring when necessary, for it has been authentically narrated on the authority of Anas (may Allah be pleased with him) that The Prophet (peace be upon him) intended to write a letter to some foreign people but he was informed that these people did not accept any letter unless it was sealed. So the Prophet (peace be upon him) got a silver ring made with “Muhammad Allah’s Apostle” engraved on it, as if I am now looking at the glitter of the ring on the finger (or in the palm) of the Prophet (peace be upon him).
May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
