Ferronnière

Ferronnière  

 A ferronnière is a style of headband that encircles the wearer's forehead, usually with a small jewel suspended in the centre. The original form of the headband was worn in late fifteenth-century Italy, and was rechristened a ferronnière at the time of its revival in the second quarter of the nineteenth century for both day and (more frequently) formal and evening wear.

The original ornament that later became called a ferronnière was popular in 15th-century Italy, where it could be made from metal or jewels.
