Construction of a crown

Surprisingly, this is difficult to research, because 'crown' is such a ubiquitous word.


I'm looking for generic terms for the motifs (crosses, fleurs-de-lys and so on) that stand up around the rim of a European crown.

I've tried combos of crown, construction, anatomy, parts, regalia, and looked in the Encyclopaedia Britannica and World Book Encylcopedia.  No luck so far.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  ETA: Thank-you, everyone!  After the following of many links, and much appreciation of the bling therein, I've decided to go for 'embellishments'.
