so I don't screw this up. I'd hate to make something she can't wear.

I can't offer photos of circlets per se, but there are _at least_ a few extant crowns that might provide inspiration. They're all earlier or later than the period you're looking for, sorry.
The Iron Crown of Lombardy
The Crown of Ottokar II (ruled Bohemia 1253 - 1278)
Crown of Boleslaw I (14th century, modern reproduction)
Reliquary Crown of Henry II
Crown of Saint Wenceslas (mid 14th century)
The Środa Treasure (mid 14th century)
Mosan Reliquary Crown (c. 1260-70,)
The English 'Palatine' crown (1370-80)
You didn't mention where in the world your friend was interested in, and I found a 13th century Indonesian crown:
Hope it helps!
