The golden tiara (おうごんのティアラ ōgon no tiara), also known as the golden barrette, tiara or spellward circlet, is a piece of headwear in the Dragon Quest series that first appeared in Dragon Quest V. Designed for women, it guards against various status ailments.

Note that the item called by this name in Dragon Quest IV and IX, in Japanese, is actually a seperate item called the きんのかみかざり kin no kamikazari (Gold Hair Ornament) - not to be confused with the Japanese name for the Silver Tiara which is called ぎんのかみかざり gin no kamikazari (Silver Hair Ornament).
