Same old story:
ASA - umpire judgement about danger
NFHS - no visible jewelry

Either case, we should not require removal, just prevent playing with it if not allowed.
And the difference is?
Removal might be injurious either physically or psychologically. The correct procedure is saying the player can not play with the jewelry, illegal equipment, anything not allowed and letting them make the decision to conform or not play.
Officiating takes more than OJT.
It's not our jobs to invent rulings to fit our personal idea of what should and should not be.
