Jewelry In Candles Review
Update: Jewelry In Candles has now merged and become a part of JewelScent. You can find our JewelScent review here or visit our top 5 jewelry candle list here.
This is a review that we’ve been wanting to do for quite a while now. We were getting loads of messages and comments asking us to try Jewelry In Candles and we wanted to know just what all the fuss was about.
We’ve finally had a chance to try it out, and here’s what we think..
Wax Type: Hand poured, 100% Soy wax candle
Size: 16 oz (453 g) wax, 21 oz jar
Price: Varies. The scent of the month candles go for $19.96 while most of the regular candles go for $24.95 and some higher
Shipping: Shipping prices will also vary. These candles DO ship internationally, although higher rates will apply outside of the USA
Jewelry Surprise: Choice in rings for ladies size 5-10, men’s rings size 9-13, earrings, necklace, as well as various other pieces
Bonus Prize: Identical bonus candles can arrive in your order which can contain gift cards, vacation packages, electronics, and other prizes which have yet to be announced
Reveal Type: No online jewelry appraisal in place (visit a local jeweler I suppose?)
Possible Jewelry Value: From $10 – $10000+
Other Items Available: Wax melts
Being that we are located in Canada, it was a nice surprise to find a jewelry candle company that actually gave us the option to have a candle shipped to us without using a 3rd party shipping service. Although the higher shipping costs might turn off quite a few of the international customers, it is refreshing to see the option there.
The candle that we tried was the company’s ‘scent of the month’ for June 2015 in Rose Zinfandel. Going with the scent of the month will save you 20% off the regular candle price, so if you think you might like that scent you might as well get the savings while you can!
With Jewelry In Candles the customization level on your candle is quite impressive. Various size options in ladies AND men’s rings will give you the piece of mind that you will actually be able to use the jewelry that you find inside them.
Presentation: The ring candles from Jewelry In Candles come in your standard 21 oz glass jars with lids to go along with them. The labels vary quite a bit, some look very nice while others are so-so
Fragrance Intensity: The candle gave off a mild scent out of the box. When I lit the Rose Zinfandel candle up I fell in love with how perfectly it’s fragrance filled the room. It wasn’t an overpowering fragrance but it had great throw that remained strong all the way through
Ring/Jewelry Quality: The ring which I found in our candle didn’t look like anything special and I’m quite sure it was just costume jewelry. That is the name of the game with these candles though and I feel that luck is just not on our side in this department! With that said though, it should be noted that there is no easy way of finding out your jewelry’s actual worth as there is no official appraisal method from Jewelry In Candles
Candle Performance: Big props to Jewelry In Candles for their candle performance. We were able to get a full 100 hour burn time out of our candle with an even wax melt the whole way through. The wick needed very little maintenance at all which was also a plus
Scent Variety: Jewelry In Candles has among the largest variety of scents in jewelry candles at 74 different scents for their candles and 76 for their tarts at the time of this writing. The scents are fun and creative and you are sure to have a tough time choosing just one. I believe that the only company that currently has more scents available in jewelry candles is Jewelry Candles (different company, confusing names)

Price: Jewelry In Candles base price of $24.95 is the same as most of its competitors. Some special edition candles come with a higher price tag but also give you more jewelry. They also have a scent of the month that changes each month and is a marked at 20% off the normal price for that entire month, so be sure to check that out if you are looking for a deal
Other Notes: It is a bit of a bummer that Jewelry In Candles doesn’t currently have a system in place to appraise the jewelry found in their candles online. Some of the other companies have codes attached to their jewelry which you can enter online and it will tell you what your find is worth, adding some extra fun to the whole process. Even still, the company makes an amazing candle that you are sure to enjoy.
And if you do end up finding a ring that looks like it is worth more than costume jewelry you could always go get it appraised locally. I’m fairly certain you will have a gut feeling if you find a ring worth $1K+ 😉
Update: We were told by another rep from Jewelry In Candles that there WILL be a tag attached to your jewelry if you find one with a value of $100 or higher which does make this much less of an issue!
The jewelry found in our candles ranges in value from tens to tens of thousands of dollars. You will discover jewelry varying from very high quality costume jewelry to solid gold–some with stones made from cubic zirconia or other materials. With more valuable jewelry discoveries, you may find titanium, solid sterling silver, solid yellow and/or white gold. Some may also include real diamonds, rubies, or other precious jewels. Just when you thought we were done with all the excitement… we have bonus jewelry candles that could arrive in your order that contain hi-tech electronics and other grand prizes yet to be announced. As our company grows, so will our prizes. One thing is for sure–you will be impressed!

The Jewelry In Candles Rep Program
Jewelry In Candles also offers a rep program as a means from which customers can gain an additional source of income for themselves. I believe that a lot of the over-hyping that surrounds Jewelry In Candles comes because of this. That said, from all of the ring candles that we have tried out, these were some of, if not the best performing candles of their kind. Joining the rep program can also save you some money if you plan on buying quite a few candles as you get a 30% discount on your purchases but there is a cost up front to join. You can read more about the rep program in depth on our Jewelry In Candles store page, and thank you in advance if you do end up deciding to join through us! 😀

Here is the ring we found within the Rose Zinfandel candle (Appears to be costume jewelry valued from $10 – $20)
Thanks to Shannon Shafer for sending us this candle and allowing us to do this review!
Large scent variety
Great candle burn quality
Strong scent that carries
Appraisal system needs improvement
Jewelry In Candles make some great hand poured candles. This was one of my favorite to burn that I've tried and I was a little sad to see it finally burn out. The one downside I found is with the lack of info on the jewelry found within. If they put a better system in place to easier find the value of your jewelry it would have been bumped up a few more points in the final overall score. All in all, this is one of the best jewelry candles on the market right now.
