1949? - Maria Magdalena of Leuchtenberg, great-granddaughter of the 4th Duke of Leuchtenberg
I don't know the year for this one but I think the woman on the left is Jill Corey not Cory. She is an American singer who was popular in the 1950s.
1956 - Nancy Berg
1963 - Princess Grace of Monaco
1967 - Rose Kennedy at the Red Cross Ball in Palm Beach, Florida
1969 - on display in New York City - The caption reads "DIADEME OF L'IMPERATRICE JOSEPHINE. The tiara with 1040 diamonds offered by emperor Napoleon 1st to empress Josephine and she wore the day of the coronation, private collection of Van Cleef and Arpels, June 12, 1969."
1978 - Jane Anderson Dudley, who was the wife of the American ambassador to Denmark, at the Red Cross Ball in Palm Beach, Florida.
1988 - I think the occasion that the Countess of Paris wore the tiara was the evening before the wedding of her granddaughter Mathilde to Count Erich von Waldburg zu Zeil und Trauchburg
I recall reading that Van Cleef & Arpels sold this tiara presumably after doubts were raised about it belonging to Empress Josephine but I can't find where I read it.
