The necklace always consist of some Blue Beads to keep evil eyes away. Some of them will have the hand of Allah with Blue beads. in the bottom they will have a pouch that is holding the complete pedigree of the foal with a all his distinguished markings /colors /ownership / breeders / etc..
Also on this pedigree they will have the signature of two witness who were present when the foal was born.
