Question

Is it permissible for women to wear jingling jewellery, such as bracelets or anklets, in her own home with no fear of non-mahrams hearing her?

Answer

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

There is no harm – Allah willing – for a woman to show her inner adornment by making a sound if she is sure that no non-Mahram man can hear her. Allah Says (what means): {And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment.} [Quran 24:31]

Al-Qurtubi  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him said in his Tafseer about the interpretation of the above verse: “It means that a woman should not stamp her feet when she walks to make the sound of her anklets be heard, because making the sound of adornment be heard is like showing the adornment itself and it is even worse than that, and the purpose is to conceal (her beauty).” [End of quote]

This indicates that it (making a sound with her adornment) is permissible if a non-Mahram man cannot hear her.

Allah Knows best.
