Can Sikhs wear jewellery?

I watched bits of that video before and I agree with remaining modest, it's a very informative video. 

Sikh women have worn jewelry historically. There is the Sakhi of the Guru's daughter, forgive my ignorance, who refuses jewelry and clothing given her by the Sangat. So clearly there was jewelry on a number of women.

Are Sikhs allowed to wear jewellery (rings, bracelets etc)? Many photos and art show Sikhs from the 19th and early 20th century wearing jewellery even wives of Nihang Singhs, so is it allowed? 

What's the Gurbani perspective on it? 

If you are not amritdhari, you can wear jewelry. But Sikh females generally avoid the nose things and crazy piercings. 

Also nihangs had a tradition that women weren't allowed to take amrit. So I wouldn't use their wives as role model for amritdhari women.
