There are two distinct Hebrew terms rendered crown. The one represents such headdresses as we should designate coronet, band, miter, tiara, garland, etc. The other is generally applied to the headdresses of kings.

The former was a simple fillet or diadem around the head, variously ornamented. Newly-married persons of both sexes wore crowns on their wedding-day, Song of Solomon 3:11 Ezekiel 16:12.

The crowns of kings were sometimes white fillets, bound round the forehead, the ends falling back on the neck; or were made of gold tissue, adorned with jewels. That of the Jewish high priest was a fillet, or diadem, tied with a ribbon of a hyacinth color, Exodus 28:36 39:30. Occasionally the crown was of pure gold, and was worn by kings, 2 Chronicles 23:11, sometimes when they went to battle, 2 Samuel 1:10 12:30. It was also worn by queens, Esther 2:17. The crown is a symbol of honor, power, and eternal life, Proverbs 12:4 Lamentations 5:16 1 Peter 5:4. Crowns or garlands were given to the successful competitors at the Grecian games, to which frequent allusion is made in the Epistle, 2 Timothy 4:7,8.
