di·a·dems | ˈdī-ə-ˌdem
A semi-circular band worn around the head, which is usually jeweled and three dimensional
Diadems are primarily worn by monarchs and other like nobility as a pin of royalty. As one would now expect, the diadem symbolizes royal power. In the fourth century, diadems transitioned to encompass diamonds and pearls, which symbolized imperial power, and shown on various gold pieces from that time era. In the highest regard, the diadem transitioned into one of wide use - which was a result of Alexander the Great. Furthermore, by the deepest respect, the queen’s diadem entailed 3 diadems, each larger than the one above it; plus it was fastened to a wide gold band. The largest of these fit quite snug, coming down the forehead, with large, interlocking rings. However, the second and third were made of real-life willow leaves. One of the first diadems was discovered in a tomb in the 4th dynasty. It consisted of a gold band, which was supported by a copper band, and three additional designs were applied.
