DOES ISLAM PROHIBIT WEARING OF GOLD AND SILK, AND GOLD AND SILVER UTENSILS?

For years, I have scrupulously followed claimed prohibitions on wearing of gold and silk by men,

believing these to be orders from Allah - equivalent in weight to the prohibitions on consuming liquor and eating pork that actually APPEAR in the Quran!

I now have concluded I was wrong!

There is NOT A WORD IN THE QURAN which prohibits anyone (male or female) from wearing gold or silk, or using gold or silver utensils.
