The necklace of anguish is a necklace made by enchanting a zenyte necklace with the Lvl-7 Enchant spell. Requiring level 75 Hitpoints to equip, it is a purely offensive neck slot item, offering the best-in-slot Ranged attack and Ranged Strength bonus.
Players can attach an anguish ornament kit, obtained from master clue scrolls, to create a necklace of anguish (or). This is only cosmetic, and does not affect the necklace's stat bonuses. It can be dismantled, returning the necklace and ornament kit.

- In the original Developer's Blog, it was proposed that zenyte jewellery, in addition to its stats, would provide a passive healing effect provided that it was charged with a cut onyx. Charged zenyte jewellery equipped would have a 10% chance of healing 5% of the damage dealt to a target. This effect would last for 10,000 successful hits, which when depleted would return the zenyte jewellery to its uncharged state and would require another onyx to become charged again. This was polled in the Old School Content Poll #39, where it only received 69.1% votes in favour, 5.9% short of passing the poll.
