LOS ANGELES, Jan 10, 2009 / FW/ — For many, it is hard to believe that no matter how modern and technologically advance Hollywood becomes, its denizens are more superstitious than they want to accept publicly. Understanding that illogical yet lovable nature of Hollywood, L’Oreal Paris and Carelle created the 2009 Golden Globes compact as “Good Luck” charms to be presented to the female nominees.
Designed by Carelle, a fine jewelry company, the 2009 Golden Globes Compact will be gifted to top female nominees in the Best Actress Drama and Best Actress Comedy categories. But, the giving does not stop there. One compact will be auctioned on www.ebay.com/lorealparis with all proceeds benefiting the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
Entitled “Harmony”, the compact is a shimmering combination of lemon citrine and pale green quartz stones set in sterling silver plated in 18K yellow gold with diamond details in honor of the Golden Globes. The compact evokes a calming, balanced aura with yellow citrines that symbolize optimism, positive energy and enhanced creativity. The yellow is a perfect complement to green as it represents harmony and “attracts success”.
This stunning compact is not just for the stars — one limited edition compact will be listed for sale with eBay Giving Works, a special part of the eBay marketplace that connects people to the causes they care about by offering them easy, convenient, and trusted ways to give.
All funds generated will benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). The compact is valued at $3650 and will be auctioned on www.ebay.com/lorealparis. The auction has an opening bid of $500 and will run from January 11th through January 18th. The charity auction is being managed on eBay by Auction Cause, a premiere auction management company.
