What does Proverbs 1:9 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 1:9

For they [shall be] an ornament of grace unto thy head
The instructions and laws of parents being attended unto and obeyed by children, render them more lovely and amiable than any beautiful ornament whatever that can be put upon their heads;

and chains about thy neck;
be that unto them as chains of gold are to the neck, beautify and adorn them; so good works, done in obedience to God and parents, are ornaments of great price, and preferable to any outward adorning whatever; see ( 1 Timothy 2:9 1 Timothy 2:10 ) ( 1 Peter 3:3 1 Peter 3:4 ) . The allusions are unto, and the metaphors taken from, those things which are most pleasing and acceptable to children, as fine top knots and golden chains.
