Can Sikhs wear jewellery?


Recommended Posts

Are Sikhs allowed to wear jewellery? Many photos and art show Sikhs from the 19th and early 20th century wearing jewellery so why is it discouraged today?

What's the Gurbani perspective on it?

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.

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.

I heard jewellery among women (and some men) was much more prevalent a century ago. Women used to have numerous piercings in ears (which is why old Panjabi ladies have stretched earlobes).

Yes as gold has many health benefits and the earlobes have alot of reflexology points connecting to the brain. Look it up. 

As Britain stole most of our gold, wearing fake jewellery didn't have the same appeal.

Wearing jewelry is not encouraged in our kaum. We have a lifestyle of saint and soldier. What is the purpose of wearing jewelry ? Saying it brings health benefits is same as saying earth is flat.
