The ornaments for the hair are exquisite. 
A large tortoise shell comb embellished 
with pearls and gold is worn on top of 
the head and resembles a crown. This 
is the key piece and the gold hairpins 
and "tembleques", which are quivering 
pins and worn in pairs, are placed on 
the head to give the appearance  of a radiant halo. Two small discs tied to the hair at the temples with black silk thread and large gold filigree earrings with pearls or corals  complete the head dress.
