Necklace

A necklace is an article of jewellery that is worn around the neck. Necklaces may have been one of the earliest types of adornment worn by humans. They often serve ceremonial, religious, magical, or funerary purposes and are also used as symbols of wealth and status, given that they are commonly made of precious metals and stones.

It depends on the contents of it. If it contains proper material according to Ahlul Bayt (AS) then it is permissible to wear.

Sura Falah and Sura Naas are very useful to counter bad eyes and any possibly harmful situation.

Short answer: Yes.

Longer answer: In Shi'i fiqh, there is no prohibition on it.

However, if someone is genuinely concerned about the evil eye, hadith recommend deflecting it via the Qur'an and du'a, and do not specifically prescribe the types of things culturally associated with the evil eye (like blue ornaments).

I am not intending to advance a view as to whether or not there is actually any merit in hanging up evil eye ornaments, since, in my view, if something has been done cross-culturally for thousands of years, it might have some wisdom behind it. Or, it also might not. (Certainly, evil eye ornaments are a good method of social signalling telling nosy and intrusive people to back off!) 

However, what I am saying is that it is not specifically prescribed in the Qur'an or hadith and therefore is a cultural rather than an Islamic scriptural practice.

If someone is just using these things for decoration or the aesthetic value, none of the above is relevant anyway.

Some Sunni scholars are currently opposed to the evil eye ornaments on the grounds that it might be shirk, or because they consider it a false belief that people are doing because they think it is true, for other reasons. 

So one can choose whatever view is most suitable for them.

Bismihi ta'ala

This is all going to be circumstantial, because a female could be wearing a ring, and it could be attracting the gaze of the non-mahram, and it could not. 

The outer hijab of a woman is covering up herself, with the exemption of her face, and her hands up to her wrist. Everything else should be covered. 

If she is wearing any jewellery, and that jewellery is on top of her hijab clothing, or on her hand, like a ring, then it could be either halal to show, or haram. 

It would depend on whether the piece of jewellery is attracting the gaze of a non-mahram, or resulting in lustful looks, or solely considered as 'zeenah'. In this case it would be haram for her to reveal. 

If a woman is wearing a necklace on top of her hijab, or a brooch, a ring, a bracelet, etc, and it is not attracting the gaze of a non-mahram man, then she can wear it. 

A woman might not be intending it to bring notice of a non-mahram, but it would still be considered haram if it is bringing notice, as it would be considered as zeenah. 

And Allah knows best.

Yes it is permissible to wear a necklace with Zulfiqar provided that it should not be shown to non Mahram men if you are a female, and if it has on it the name of Allah or any of the Infallible , you should not let that writing touch your body when you are with out Wudhu.

Man is not allowed to wear women dress or items, as woman is also not allowed to wear dress or items of men.

It is not enough that his intention is not intimate women, but the society should not see him as wearing or looking like a woman.

Men are allowed to wear silver but them must avoid wearing what is understood in their society as dress of women.
