Molina has xiuhuitzolli, crown with precious stones.
This has to be xiuh-uitzolli, since he always uses simple u/v for w- (and -uh for -w)
A verb huitzoa is attested in yacauitzoa - to sharpen a point. 
This would give huitzo:lli  for something pointed, presumably also something with points, i.e. a crown
