Imitation Jewellery haraam?

Salaam Alaykum, 

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

 

I had a muslim Shia' convert ask me this question and I don't know how true this is: 

 

Those who love to wear imitation jewelry should understand that Rasulullah (S) has strictly prohibited use of it for both, man as well as woman. When he saw a ring of steel in the hand of a Muslim he warned: it is an ornament of the people of the hell. Listen! From you I have found signs and smell of Zoroastrians. That person removed his metallic ring and wore a ring of gold. Rasulullah(S) warned that your finger is in the Hell as long as this ring remains on your finger. Learned writer of "Daem al Islam", Syedna Qazi al Nauman has mentioned that afterwards that person questioned; should I not wear a ring? He (S) guided: [10]

"You can wear a ring made of silver, which should not exceed one Misq'al".
"Daem al Islam", Syedna Qazi al Nauman, vol. II, Qahera; also quoted by Tirmizi, Abu Dawood & Nisai

 

According to Shi'a ahadith and fiqh, are we permitted to wear imitation jewellery? 

Thank you so much in advance,

 Wearing iron, steel or brass ring is makrooh for both men and women. Therefore, according to Imam Ja'far-e-Sadiq (a.s.), the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) used to wear a silver ring.

According to another tradition, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) asked men not to wear an iron ring while praying and strictly prohibited wearing of brass ring.

I never heard this before. Would it be these metals which are prohibited, or the wearing of costume jewelry? What about glass or plastic beads? What about jewelry that is for children to play dress up, or ornamented pins on hijab?
