Had a discussion with a fellow official about penalty for wearing jewelry. Found rule discussing what to do if you notice before they enter the game, but didn't see anything regarding if you see it while they are playing. Another official said T. I disagreed. Who is right?

No provision for a T for jewelry. When you see it, they must leave the game until it is gone.
I swear, Gus, you'd argue with a possum.
It'd be easier than arguing with you, Woodrow.

Under no circumstances can you give a T solely for wearing jewelry. I'm not quite sure where that myth started...maybe it was the rule formerly?
Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, given a chance to climb, they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions.

Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

No penalty. 3.5 Sit B and 3.5.7 Sit A.

The officials are on the court prior to the game observing the
team warm-ups. One official notices that a member of Team A is wearing a decorative
RULING: The official should inform the team member to remove
the jewelry immediately. Upon compliance, the team member may continue to

warm up with his or her teammates and may start the game without penalty.

Substitute A6 is beckoned and enters the court to replace
A1. A6 is wearing: (a) compression shorts below the game pants which extend
below the knees; (b) cut-off jeans extending below the game pants; or (c) jewelry.

The items in (a), (b) and (c) are illegal and A6 will not be allowed to
participate while wearing the items. No penalty is involved. A6 simply cannot
participate until the illegal items are removed. (3-5-8)

TWEEET! "Coach, I need another one. This one's not ready to play."

Then send them off......and I don't give them time to stand on the court near the bench and fiddle with their necklace (or whatever) either. The game will start soonest.
There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.
