PARTING GIFTS: Whoever wins the Academy Award for Best Actress on Sunday night will take home more than just a golden statuette. The victor will also receive a cosmetic compact — valued at a whopping $9,050. Called the “Courage Compact,” the big-ticket accessory was designed by New York based-jeweler Carelle and features a cover that is studded with rhodolite and amethyst stones, as well as pavé diamonds. “I always felt that diamonds show what a woman is worth, but color shows who a woman is,” said Carelle founder Chana Regev of the bauble, which was commissioned by L’Oréal Paris.

Best actress nominees at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild awards already received at least one compact from the limited edition line, but that gift was valued at $4,000. More items from the bedazzled collection will be up for grabs on eBay through March 1. Proceeds will benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
