Is there any problem in wearing an Ali locket?

Thank you for your query.

If it is not the name of the Imam(just a name written and sold by someone without the intention of the Imams’ name) then it can be worn without wudhu but if there are any of the Imams names then follow the below ruling according to Ayatullah al-Udhma Sayyid Ali Sistany:

Ruling 318. Based on obligatory precaution, it is unlawful for someone who does not have wudū to touch the name of Allah the Exalted or His special attributes in whatever language they happen to be written. And it is better to also avoid touching the blessed names of Prophet Muhammad (S), the Imams (A), and Her Eminence [Fātimah] al-Zahrā (A) without wudū.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
