I’ve really found my love for candles increasing as the seasons change, there’s something about a nice cosy evening at home with a candle lit that really appeals to me. My latest addition is a Jewel Candle in Cookies and Cream. If you haven’t heard of Jewel Candle you’ve definitely been missing out – every candle comes with a tiny package hiding somewhere in the wax, containing a surprise piece of jewellery – this is a must for any candle fan!
When you purchase a Jewel Candle you choose the candle scent, and also if you’d like a ring or earrings. I went for the ring option as I don’t wear earrings very often. Your jewellery item is guaranteed to be made of sterling silver, and valued up to £250! The exciting part is you don’t know what you’re going to get, or the value of your item!
The candle arrived securely packaged, and it was a lot bigger than I was expecting! It’s 16cm high and weights 800g. The burn time is around 120 hours too so I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it! I loved that you can see the silver foil package through the glass – it’s also nice that it’s placed towards the top of the candle so you don’t have to burn it forever to get the package out.
After around 4 hours the wax was soft enough to let me pick the foil parcel out. Getting it out was a messy job, so I’d recommend you prepare yourself before attempting extraction! I ended up picking it out with a pair of tweezers and unwrapping the package on some kitchen roll. The wax was really super slimy so I couldn’t take any pictures at this point!
I ended up with a lovely delicate silver ring that fits my middle finger perfectly. Jewel Candle used to tell you the value of your item on the tag but they don’t seem to do this any more, if you’re interested to find out the value you can always go to a jewellery shop. I’d imagine mr ring is worth somewhere around the £10 – £15 mark.
I’m really happy with my candle and my ring, I think a Jewel Candle would make an excellent christmas gift for a candle lover!
