What do the pious and expert scholars of Islam say: Is Zakat payable on gold jewellery that I wear?
Zakat is payable on all jewellery, whether you wear it or not. It is a transferable and sellable asset that you can dispose anytime. It is like the money in your pocket or the bank.
And Allah ﷻ knows best
