This simple gold crown features three branch-shaped ornaments attached to a short-rimmed headband. It appears that the band used to be shorter, because it has a patchwork extension at the back, made from a piece of gold plate. The ornaments have only one tier of the splitbranch design. Of the six gold crowns of Silla that have so far been discovered, this one represents the oldest form of the original type, featuring ornaments that closely resemble actual tree branches.
