Dear Brother / Sister,
One who enters the toilet wearing a ring with the name of Allah or Prophet on its bezel must cover it. If the ring is on the left hand, he must remove it while cleaning the dirt. (Ibn Abidin, V, 317).
Accordingly, if the name of Allah is written on one’s necklace, he/she can enter the toilet by covering or reversing it.
Women can wear such necklaces and jawshan (A prayer of the Prophet (PBUH)) during menstruation. Besides, it can be worn during the intercourse. However they must be covered if they are open.
