** The Tiara of Tiara of Pope Pius VII (AKA the Napoleon Tiara) is noteworthy because it was made as a ''mockery''--Napoleon had it made too small and too heavy (''eighteen pounds!'') for the pope to wear, from materials Napoleon had taken from older Papal tiaras his troops had stolen and smashed, and had it inscribed with phrases praising Napoleon. These inscriptions were removed after Napoleon's fall, and the crown was resized so it could be used in coronations. After WorldWarOne, most of the gems were removed and replaced with coloured glass on the orders of Pope Benedict XV--the real gems being sold to aid victims of the war.

* As noted above, during the late Victorian era and through the end of TheEdwardianEra (roughly 1870 through the beginning of WorldWarOne), female monarchs and noblewomen almost always wore OperaGloves at any even remotely formal occasion. This continued to be quite common into the 1960's (check out pictures of Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret from the 1950's, for example) but has become comparatively rare in current times. It was, from Medieval times to after the WorldWarTwo, the done thing for women to wear some sort of gloves as part of their formal wear, mind- in fact both ladies and gentlemen for a long time wore them whenever they went outdoors (probably originally to keep the skin of their hands in good condition, especially as the gentry rode horses). Whether they were opera gloves or something shorter was subject to fashion.)

* '''OperaGloves'''. This is also an optional trope, but if the story takes place in the 1870-1914 period (e.g., ThePrisonerOfZenda), the [[TheHighQueen queen]] or {{Princess}} will be wearing these (usually in white kid leather) on formal occasions.

* ''{{Pretear}}'' has tiaras in at least some of her outfits, as well. She is referred to as a "princess" at least once in both the anime and the manga (by different characters) -- this makes sense, considering the series is loosely based on ''Snow-White''; besides, it is a pun on her name, Himeno. She also gains an even more crown-like tiara when she achieves the form of the Legendary White Pretear.

* '''A Royal Ring'''. Or course Royalty has plenty of rings, but in fiction TheLawOfConservationOfDetail applies, so if a ring is mentioned, it will have some significance. Often this is a way to identify the long lost heir, or as a way to mark royal seals (as they often were used in RealLife), or sometimes [[RingOfPower they have magical powers]]. The royal seals are sometimes on a "Signet ring", which is very important. Some royal houses have Keepers of the Seal, whose job it is to guard the seal, although it usually is not on a ring in that case..

* In the ''Literature/{{Elenium}}'', the knights have to find the long-lost royal crown of Thalesia, which - when its last bearer died - was thrown into a lake to keep it out of enemy hands. The significance of the crown isn't the headpiece itself, but the elaborate sapphire carved in the shape of a rose. This is Bhelliom, and it's an incredibly powerful magic artifact.

* Traditional Scandinavian brides. The term "bridal crown" was coined during the seventeenth century and onwards, leading to elaborate silver crowns worn by brides in rural areas for hundreds of years. Some of those were handed down as heirlooms, and are, as a rule pretty heavy. Traditional weddings were meant to last for ''three days'', and the bride ditched the crown after the first day, in an elaborate ritual replacing the crown with the garments meant for married women. The understatement was that the bride was "royal" on her wedding day.

Predictably, the bridal crown has picked up the same retroactive symbolism as a white dress, with some people arguing about whether a given bride “entitled” to wear the crown.
