I would like to wear silver chain.
Is it permissible for Muslim men to wear silver chains?
If it is haram please give me a proof of it being so from hadith.

I found these after a Google search:
Verdict from IslamQA : With regard to wearing chains, this is not permissible for men, because this is an imitation of women, and there is no report which says that it is permissible for men to wear chains made of silver.
Verdict from AskImam : Wearing a silver chain, regardless of its size, is impermissible for men.
Verdict from onIslam.net : Generally speaking, it is not permissible for men to wear chains as this is considered an imitation to women ... if a man is required for health reasons to wear chains, he is then allowed to for such a necessity.
All of the three are Sunni fatwa sites
Wearing of chain by male was never permissible at the time of the prophet. He only permitted wearing of silver ring and that was all. Don't be confused that because he permitted the wearing of silver rings has made wearing of silver chains halaal. Chains are objects for the beautification of the females not males. The fact is that chain was never permissible for male and it will never be.
