Salamu alaikum, brother. I want to ask what kind of jewelry material is permissible for a man to wear? For example, are palladium and rhodium permissible to be used for a wedding ring and for a man to wear it on his finger? Thank you.
Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,
It is only gold that is forbidden to men. All other elements are permitted as long as they are not mixed with gold.

Thank you for the answer, brother. Also, this is a follow-up question for the jewelry material. Does forbidding gold applies for the white gold, as well?
Yes, it applies to everything that has the chemical element gold (Au) in it. White gold is just gold mixed with nickel, silver, or palladium usually.
