Second Section – the Negative Commandments

16. It is a negative commandment not to derive pleasure from the decorations of an idol nor its ornaments

As it states in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 7:25, "Do not desire the silver or gold upon them and take it for yourself."

This applies in all places and at all times, for men and for women.
