Wasn't Paul-Louis Weiller married to Princess Alexandra Ghika before his marriage to Aliki Diplearakos?

I think Princess Marie-Gabrielle will wear the small floral tiara from the GDF collection. Her cousin Archduchess Marie-Christine and cousin-in-law Adélaïde Drapé-Frisch wore it for their religious ceremonies.

Not fond of the ring or earrings. Wonder what tiara she will wear at the religious ceremony. Maybe this tiara on her step mother: http://c8.alamy.com/comp/DX4JP6/prin...ner-DX4JP6.jpg

Its a beautiful tiara and perfect for a bride.
This tiara was a loan from Princess Sibylla and can also be worn in a larger version. It's a possibility, but I can also imagine her with the small floral tiara.

Princess Josephine Charlotte of Belgium wore the Congo Bracelet as tiara and not the necklace because on some pictures we can see that she wore the Congo necklace.

Maria Olivia, are you sure that it was the Congo necklace that she wore, and not a diamond riviere? To me, it looks more like a riviere, but I haven't seen clear enough pics to be certain.

I think it was reported that during the ceremony she wore the Congo necklace/taira and for the official photos she wore the diamond scroll tiara. Don't know are there 2 Congo pieces? A convertible necklace/tiara and a bracelet? I alwaqys thought it is only the convertivle necklace/tiara.

Stefan , when you see the Congo necklace and the bracelet to-gether , you can see that wearing the necklace as tiara is impossible. (this was discussed on GREMB some years ago). Indeed , for the official picture the Princess wore the scroll tiara.

There's a photo of the necklace and bracelet at Luxarazzi: Luxarazzi 101: the Congo Diamond Necklace Tiara

The Princess was wearing the necklace on her wedding day , I saw it on some rare pictures.
The bracelet is short as the wedding tiaras . They should not cut the necklace to make it shorter.

Confirmation from Hans (GREMB board)
Princess Josephine Charlotte wore the Congo necklace as necklace and the bracelet as tiara.
I wrote already in the past to Luxurazzi about that but they never answer.

Thanks for the pictures.
Tbh, I'm not really convinced. The necklace consists of three rows of stones, a row of baguette (?) cut stones in the middle, flanked by round stones on the inside and outside. That's just like the tiara. The bracelet, on the other hand, seems to be just two rows, one baguette cut, the other round cut. And on the wedding pic of GD Josephine-Charlotte, it looks like the necklace is just one row, so could be a single row diamond riviere.

The necklace consists of three parts. Most visible in front is the part with the three rows of diamonds. But to the sides the design changes to a two-row design like the bracelet. If these side parts are detachable, it would be easy to wear the middle part as tiara.

Now I have the right solution and you were right.
Princess Joséphine Charlotte wore the center of the Necklace (3 rows as tiara) and the bracelet (2 rows) and the end of the necklace (2 rows) as necklace the day of her Wedding

Is the Congo necklace still with the Grand Ducal family as a lot of the late Grand Duchess Joséphine Charlotte 's jewels were sold off after her death.
