Why are muslim men not allowed to wear gold?
According to many authentic traditions of the Prophet (SA), it is clearly stated that Gold is unlawful for males to wear. Based upon this, it has become a prohibition for men to wear gold.
Can men wear silver jewellry on the whole, eg. chains, rings, bands etc, or is there a limit to what you can wear?
Many of the great Fuqaha (Jurists) and Islamic Scholars of the past and present have spoken against the wearing of silver chains, bands etc by men. The allowance has only been given for wearing a silver ring since the Prophet (S.A) used to wear a silver ring.
And Allah knows best.
