No, it is different.  In Atlantia there are no sumptuary laws or customs
except those described in corpora and related documents.  In particular,
many of the people on this forum may not understand the question you ask,
as the idea of restricting circlets (whether adorned or not) is strange

Coronets (Baronial, County, Ducal, etc.) are restricted here as everywhere,
but circlets are objects that hold down your veil, rather than badges of rank.
