The Luxarazzi Tiara Race (5): Sapphire Necklace Tiara vs. Floral Bandeau Tiara

Grand Duchess Maria Ana's Tiara it is, your winner of the last edition of the Luxarazzi Tiara Race.  It was a relatively close race, with the winner receiving 254 votes (or 53.47%) to the 221 votes (or 46.53%) that went to the Emerald Art Deco Tiara. I'm tempted to call this the first major upset of The Luxarazzi Tiara Race: A virtually unknown tiara beating such a household name, quite a surprise!

Heading off against each other today are two relatively unknown pieces. On the one hand we have a sapphire and diamond necklace turned tiara worn by Grand Duchess Joséphine Charlotte below; on the other hand a diamond bandeau tiara with a floral motif worn by Grand Duchess Charlotte for a number of portraits in her early years and not seen since. (A little more info about both of them in our post about the Grand Ducal Tiara Collection.)
So, you know the drill: Vote for the tiara that should advance into the next round below and don't forget to leave a comment which one you favour and why.
