Halacha - shabbos belt
Submitted by Dovid B.  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Shmiras Shabbos K'Hilchaso writes that if a key tie clip is made from gold or silver he should not reproach the person wearing it because it can be considered like jewlery that may be worn on Shabbos. However, the implication is that even gold and silver is not appropriate to wear, and if made from other materials it would be necessary to protest.

However, reproach is a very delicate art and must be practiced with great care and discretion. On the other hand, when done correctly it is a mitzva d'oraisa and one should not look for excuses to avoid influencing others.

Good luck!
