Brave Lisa sparkles again after horror of €1.5m robbery

Jewel-heist victim Lisa Murphy dazzled when she made a public appearance wearing a necklace worth €113,000.

Brave Lisa (38) put the trauma behind her for the day and returned to the social scene looking every bit the glamorous star -- in a leg-skimming dress topped off with diamonds.

Although she wasn't wearing a replacement ring for the stolen rock worth a whopping €500,000 -- she did impress with a fabulous neck piece.

Sporting a 76-carat kunzite and diamond necklace loanedby designer Boodles, Lisa out- shone the other guests as she donned the €113,000 statement accessory, matching it with a glittering pink frock and killer heels. Despite being targeted for her €1.5m jewellery collection in May, glamorous Lisa had everyone talking at Polo Wicklow International Ladies' Tournament in Ashford -- sponsored by Boodles.

"It was a super day; there was a great crowd there and a lot of people involved in polo," said partner, celebrity lawyer Gerald Kean.

"I don't play and neither does Lisa but we had a lot of friends there." The fiancee of the renowned solicitor was the target of a jewellery heist three months ago when masked men broke into the lavish Wicklow home the couple share.

Lisa was tied up and threatened at knife point by the thugs, who raided the pair's pad in Drayton Manor at Three Mile Water, in search of her jewels.

She was badly shaken, suffering emotionally as well as sustaining cuts and bruising. However, the businesswoman is refusing to let the incident take over her life. "It's always there; she is still nervous but she is doing great," said Mr Kean.
