Pendent drops were much used in Russia, either sewn onto Court Dress, or attached to necklaces, so it wouldn't surprise me if Mrs Greville bought the Necklace/Tiara and drops all together in the 'Fire-sale' [to end all fire sales], post 1917.
No, it is not.
Eugenie’s wedding tiara was created for Mrs. Greville by Boucheron in 1919. There is no connection to Russia at all, apart from the kokoshink style.

I have just been watching a welcome repeat of a 2 part programme on the history of Windsor castle . During the first programme a State Dinner was held to celebrate the 100yr Anniversary of the Entente Cordial . During the exchange of gifts between HM and the Presidential couple, HM is clearly wearing the Emerald necklace that caused such a stir during the Diplomatic Dinner earlier this year .

Her Majesty actually wore the Godman Necklace to this event.

Not one of my favorite bow brooch but it still packs a regal punch like most of the Windsor jewels.
