The Golden tiara is a piece of headwear in the Dragon Quest series that first appeared in Dragon Quest V. Designed for women, it provides excellent resistance against various status ailments.
The golden tiara in Dragon Quest IV is called the きんのかみかざり kin no kamikazari (gold hair ornament) in Japanese. This item would be replaced with おうごんのティアラ ōgon no tiara, a synonym, in Dragon Quest V and not return until the ninth game as a plain upgrade of the Silver tiara. The golden tiara term would be applied to the kin no kamizari by the localization team for the game to maintain naming continuity with the silver tiara, with ōgon no tiara being dubbed the Spellward circlet for the game.
