Is it wrong to wear a necklace of a magen david (star of David)? Would that be idolatry? And what if I kiss it? Will it then be idolatry?

No because even a cross is not idolatry unless its worshipped – sam Feb 2 '14 at 0:03
I am going to go based on your username that you are male, in which case there may be other issues with wearing a necklace of any type. – Y ez Feb 2 '14 at 1:40
Welcome to Mi Yodeya, Mijael, and thanks for bringing your question here. Please note that this site makes no guarantee of validity, and does not offer professional (particularly rabbinic) advice. Treat information from this site like it came from a crowd of your friends, and consult a rabbi with practical questions. Perhaps also register your account: that will give you access to more of the site's features. – msh210 Feb 2 '14 at 3:12
