I picked the set with the gold filigree headband and it was not too tight around my head. I'll take off the dangling pearls, which are attached by a jump ring and look like its meant to be removed. The gloves fit perfectly for my medium large hands. The gaudy pearls are perfect - I'm going to look great for our 1920's Christmas Party. I tried another set with the peacock feather. The headband was painfully tight and the gloves with that set were weirdly small and hardly fit my 9 year old.
