Roman slave collars

Just a few quick questions:

1. Did all Roman slaves wear collars? (If not, for what reasons might they not have one?)

2. Would a slave keep the same collar when they were sold to a different owner, or was this something that the owner had to provide?

3. Were they generally plain, or inscribed with "I belong to [whoever]"-type messages?

4. What kind of material were they usually made from? (The pictures I've found suggest metal, but I'm not sure what kind...)

ETA: Thanks a lot, people! :-)
