A coronet is a small crown consisting of ornaments fixed on a metal ring. By one definition, a coronet differs from a crown in that a coronet never has arches, and from a tiara in that a coronet completely encircles the head, while a tiara does not. By a slightly different definition, a crown is worn by an emperor, empress, king or queen; a coronet by a nobleman or lady. See also diadem. The word stems from the Old French coronete, a diminutive of co(u)ronne ("crown"), itself from the Latin corona (also "wreath"), from the Ancient Greek κορώνη (korōnē, "garland, wreath").

  • A coronet is a small crown consisting of ornaments fixed on a metal ring. By one definition, a coronet differs from a crown in that a coronet never has arches, and from a tiara in that a coronet completely encircles the head, while a tiara does not. By a slightly different definition, a crown is worn by an emperor, empress, king or queen; a coronet by a nobleman or lady. See also diadem. The word stems from the Old French coronete, a diminutive of co(u)ronne ("crown"), itself from the Latin corona (also "wreath"), from the Ancient Greek κορώνη (korōnē, "garland, wreath"). Traditionally, such headgear is – as indicated by the German equivalent Adelskrone (literally "crown of nobility") – used by nobles and by princes and princesses in their coats of arms, rather than by monarchs, for whom the word crown is customarily reserved in formal English, while many languages have no such terminological distinction. Other than a crown, a coronet shows the rank of the respective noble. Hence, in German and Scandinavian languages there is also the term Rangkrone. For equivalents, both physical and emblematic, in other languages and cultures, see under crown (headgear). (en)
  • Die Helmkrone als Helmzier bei Adelswappen (franz. couronne de noblesse, eng. crown, coronet) symbolisiert seit den Wappen des 15. Jahrhunderts den Rang von Adels- und Patrizierfamilien. Im 13. Jahrhundert waren Helmwulst und Laubkrone üblich. Erst in der zweiten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts bildete sich die Verleihung von Perlenkronen bei Adelsdiplomen als Vorrecht des Adels aus, früher kamen gekrönte Helme nur fürstlichen Personen zu. Die Rangkronen sind ein Teilgebiet der Heraldik. Die Rangkronen unterscheiden nicht zwischen Uradel und Briefadel. Der alte untitulierte Adel (Uradel) verwendete oft die gefälligere, siebenperlige Freiherrnkrone mit vielfältigen, irreführenden Argumenten. Die berechtigte fünfperlige Krone schmückt zu wenig und wird oft aus diesem Grund nicht verwendet. Es war eine Aufgabe der Heroldsämter, auf die richtige Verwendung der Rangkronen zu achten. (de)
