The sterntikhl (Yiddish for "forehead kerchief") is a distinctive and lavish head covering worn on the Sabbath and festivals by married women in Eastern Europe during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Decorated with pearls and precious stones, it was a reflection of a family's fortune. According to early accounts, affluent women would on occasion donate a precious stone from their sterntikhls to help a poor bride adorn her own. Historically, this sumptuous head covering was worn by Hasidic and non-Hasidic women, but since the twentieth century, only a small number of Hasidic women continue this custom. Very few of the early examples of this distinctive head covering remain extant.
