Chi­nese women have a va­ri­ety of tra­di­tional hair or­na­ments to choose from such as the Ji, Zan, Chai, Huan, Buyao, Feng­guan, Huasheng, Fa­dian, Bian­fang and Shubi. Worn mainly by no­ble­women in the an­cient Ming Dy­nasty on im­por­tant cer­e­monies or of­fi­cial oc­curences, it is now a head­gear of choice for brides. Feng­guan stands for ‘phoenix crown’ and is adorned with gold dragons, phoenixes, feath­ers, beaded pheas­ants, pearls and gem­stones.
