In the Southern Low Countries (the current region of Flanders) it appears that frilled veils were often worn together with a circlet during the late 14th century. This style appears namely on stone sculptures such as funerary monuments and decorative achitectural elements. Presumably this style was worn mainly by the noble elites and possibly also the urban upper echelons, as the coronets were made of (precious) metal and thus would have been quite costly. The circlet was worn underneath the veil, so that is was visible only accross the forehead. The circlets were decorated with ornate floral elements in varying sizes.You can find some more examples here.

I've been wanting to have exactly such a circlet for quite some time now, to wear with my own frilled veil. Because the circlets in the images with frilled veils are largely obscured, I collected some photos where they are more clearly visible.
