Carcanet or carcan is a jeweled collar or necklace, from the old French, carcan, meaning collar. Carcanets were typically quite elaborate and formal, and worn closely fitted. The style seems to have first appeared with the reemergence of the necklace during the end of the medieval period in the late 1300s.

Fairysoap: Tudor French Hood. A lady in Tudor times held the kokoshnik-like French hood in place by a ribbon tied under her chin. Anne Boleyn imported this style from the French court, where she obtained her sense of style. As she had beautiful long black hair, this hood revealed her dark locks in a compelling way.
