what jwellery should christian woman wear

“Brother Branham: Questions: Should a Christian woman wear simple jewelry, as necklaces or pearls?

Well, sister, I know this means a lot to you, and it means a lot for me for you to place your confidence I’d tell you the truth. Now, remember, the Bible said, “When you adorn, do not adorn with–with costly jewels, and pearls, and all kinds of wearing of jewelry, but let that be the adorning of a peace, and quiet, and meek spirit (which I just quoted), which is a great price before the Lord.”

Now, I don’t mean by that, sister, that if you had a pin… Now, this is me, not the Lord. If you had a pin that you wanted to wear, or a little necklace your husband give you, or maybe your- something like that that you wore, now, to me, I don’t think that’s bad. Now, that’s just me. Now remember, I make myself clear; that’s my opinion.

But I think it’s the approach to it; it’s the way you do it. See? It’s the motive behind it. And when you see it’s getting a hold of you, then leave the thing alone. But I think if you wore your wedding ring…” [Questions and Answers 2, Jeffersonville, IN 64-0823E]

“Now, I know you Nazarene people, it used to be that you wouldn’t even baptize a woman with a wedding ring on. See? I–I don’t believe that as necessary. In the Bible they wore wedding rings, only it was a tablet they called it, around their head, nine pieces of coin in it, but I–to show they were married. Now, I think that’s all right.

If women want to dress and–and make themselves look decent, and clean, ladylike, why, I think there’s not a thing to that, to me. But when you get to going to put that thing into making it a little pride, then you’re wrong. It’s your attitude. Do you women remember here not long ago they had what they called “scandal skirts”?

I think they’re coming out again, or they got worse. Be… Yeah, they’re, “scandalous” now, instead of, “scandal.” But they used to have a play back not long ago… They had the girls, young women… And ‘course, the old ones would do it too, ’cause they’re all want to be young.

I don’t mean you sisters, I mean the women of the world. And they’d cut their–their skirt up high, about a foot high every time, then wear some kind of a underneath garment look pretty. And when they would make a step, it would show this underneath garment with the lace, and frills, or whatever it was on it. Which, you know…”

“Now, look, a man, there’s not much to him when it comes to a body. And he, if he went half-naked, it would–there wouldn’t be any scandal to it. Not held for men, but they… You know that–what kind of a woman would be tempted by a man with his shirt off and shorts on or whatever he had? The big old burly-looking thing, it looks sloppy and sickly, I–horrible. See these men out here…

Well, I think it’d make a woman vomit to look at such a thing. If she had… But now, you take a woman and put her like that, that’s a different temple. You understand? All right. But I think as far as a necklace, or… Now, if you go to loading yourself up like you went through the ten cent store down here with a magnet on you, I–I think that… Excuse that, I didn’t mean to say that like that, but that–that’s wrong.”
