Default How was a Moroccan Jambiya worn

I have read that the rings on a Moroccan Jambiya were for the attachment of a cord that "went around the neck". Is that true? Was it still carried in the belt with the cord used as a sort of Lanyard?

Anyone have a picture?

"black woolen baldric which would be worn outside of the djellaba and over the right shoulder to suspend the koummya at the wearer's left waist."

Did it really just dangle thusly?

As Marcus says it was suspended over the shoulder. I have seen a pic showing this but can't remember now where I saw it.

Rather different. This seems impractical.
