I know that men should not wear golden materials. Few days before, I had heard that ladies also should not wear golden chains. Please clarify my doubts with proof.

Assalamu Alaikum,

Only women can wear the golden jewelry. It's Haram for men.

Because Ali bin Abi Talib said:

أَخَذَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ حَرِيرًا بِشِمَالِهِ وَذَهَبًا بِيَمِينِهِ ثُمَّ رَفَعَ بِهِمَا يَدَيْهِ فَقَالَ ‏ "‏ إِنَّ هَذَيْنِ حَرَامٌ عَلَى ذُكُورِ أُمَّتِي حِلٌّ لإِنَاثِهِمْ ‏"‏

The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) took hold of some silk in his left hand and some gold in his right, then he raised his hands and said: ‘These two are forbidden for the males of my nation, and permitted to the females.’ Sunnah ibn majah

And Allah knows best.

According to Quran there is no prohibition in women wearing Gold. But you will find hadiths supporting and opposing it.

Supporting Hadiths

“The Messenger of Allah took hold of some silk in his left hand and some gold in his right, then he raised his hands and said: ‘These two are forbidden for the males of my nation, and permitted to the females.’”

Ibn Majah Vol. 1, Book 32, Hadith 3595

Narated By 'Aisha, Ummul Mu'minin : The Prophet (pbuh) got some ornaments presented by Negus as a gift to him. They contained a gold ring with an Abyssinian stone. The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) turning his attention from it took it by means of a stick or his finger, then called Umamah, daughter of Abu al-'As and daughter of his daughter Zaynab, and said: Wear it, my dear daughter.

Abu Dawud Book 029, Hadith Number 4223.

Opposing Hadiths

Narated By A sister of Hudhayfah : The Prophet (pbuh) said: You women folk, have in silver something with which you adorn yourselves. I assure you that any woman of you who adorns herself with gold which she displays will be punished for it.

Abu Dawud Book 029, Hadith Number 4225.

Narated By Asma', daughter of Yazid : The Prophet (pbuh) said: Any woman who wears a gold necklace will have a similar one of fire put on her neck on the Day of Resurrection, and any woman who puts a gold earring in her ear will have a similar one of fire put in her ear on the Day of Resurrection.

Abu Dawud Book 029, Hadith Number 4226.

If you read the Bible you will find opposing view

1 Timothy 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

No one has the right to make a lawful thing unlawful and vice versa . Quran 16:116 , 7:32 , 66:1-2.
