Crown of Ash
Fey touched wooden crown
The crown of ash is carved from ash wood and stained the color of flaming autumn leaves. The carving is so fine and delicate that is seems to flicker like fire or leaves in the wind. Despite its seeming fragility the crown seems to be extremely resilient to wear or damage.

The crown provides a +4 enhancement bonus to your Charisma score. In addition, it gives a +4 competence bonus on Charisma checks and Charisma-based skill checks when dealing with creatures of the fey type. When dealing with creature associated with fey but not fey themselves, such as gnomes, the wearer gains a +2 competence bonus on these checks.
The wearer can speak, read and understand Sylvan. If the wearer of the crown of ash is not a fey, he gains low-light vision, a +4 bonus on saves against enchantment spells, and DR 5/cold iron.
Some fey style themselves as chieftains or lords over others of their kind, and these, like the kings and queens of other races, require symbols of their status to display to those who may not be initiated in their ways. The crown of ash is just such a piece of regalia. Crafted to impress not merely the fey of a particular court, but all those who might be visiting it, a crown of ash is simple in its physical appearance. Its magic, however, is quite powerful, coercing and nudging witnesses’ minds and enhancing the wearer’s own natural charisma.
