The Sarpech also known as an aigrette is a turban ornament worn on the Indian Subcontinent by Hindu and Muslim Kings, Princes, Noblemen and Heads of Tribes. Dominantly two kinds of turban ornaments exist: Sarpech and Kalgi

The 'SAR' means 'head' and 'PECH' means screw. Together it means an ornament fixed to a turbaned head by a screw like device. The Sarpech consists of two ornamental parts. The "Jigha" or a bejewelled plume and a horizontal band or 'patti'. This plume is synonymous with the allegory "a feather in the cap" denoting elevation in status because of valour, or a courageous, charitable, noble deed; also supremacy in campaign. Hence it was usually worn by men in powerful positions. 
Turban ornaments formed one of the most important symbols of power at the Mughal court. Both Kings and Queens of the Mughal Empire wore turbans fixed with the bejewelled Jigha.  The Jigha was worn exclusively by the emperor, his family and entourage. It was a symbol of royalty or royal favour and the presentation of a Jigha indicated imperial approval.
