With the price of ring candles being slightly higher than your everyday ‘Bed, Bath, and Beyond’ candle, you want to be sure that the one that you choose is worth the money and actually a quality candle. You may be looking for a highly fragrant candle, or maybe you want something that looks pleasant while at the same time matches with your home decor. Whatever the case may be, we’ve constructed a little basic guide to point you in the right direction using personal experience along with the consensus from people who have purchased some of each.

The CandleJunkies 3 Best Ring Candles List
Secret and Scents know how to make good candles plain and simple. They do away with the colors for the wax as well as the fancy labels and they create a candle that burns right, time after time. Deep, fragrant melt pools, great scent throw, and you can’t forget about their jewelry. We never found anything of high value in the candles we purchased from this company, but the cheap jewelry actually didn’t appear to be low-quality.
As I mentioned, the labels are nothing too fancy and if you have multiple candles around the house from Secret and Scents, they all look pretty much the same. One thing I wish they would improve on is the variety of the labels.
There are currently 32 scents available from Secret and Scents, which is nothing to scoff at. A few that stand out are ‘Nag Champa'(although not for everybody) which is an Indian fragrance popular with incense, as well as ‘Jamaican Me Crazy’ a tropical scent that will transport you to a place of beachy island drinks.
These candles have a max prize value of $5000 which is average for ring candle brands.
You can also find a provider for these candles on Amazon, making them easier to obtain for some people.

Wax Type: 100% Soy wax

Other Products of Note: Essential oils, wax tarts, natural soaps, skin care, artisan teas
Jackpot Candles has been very consistent with making quality candles and providing excellent customer service over the last couple of years that we just had to make them one of our new additions to the list. These colored, soy wax candles are highly fragrant and will form deep melt pools every time you burn them.
We found the packaging for these candles to be slightly on the boring side but not a deal breaker. The jars used for these candles are the traditional style for ring candles with the colored wax adding a little bit of personality to the candles.
For fragrance selection, Jackpot candles currently have 40 different scents ranging from caramel coffee latte to freshly squeezed lemonade. You can find the full list of scents available on their website.
The highest value of ring you can win from these candles is $5000. It may not be as high of a prize as some brands but I don’t think anyone would complain about winning one of these rings either 😉
You can also find Jackpot Candles on Amazon which makes it a little more convenient, especially for those of us that have Amazon Prime to take advantage of the free shipping!

The candles from Jewelry Candles were overall, very impressive. Our new number 1 while we rework this listI. In all aspects, they had high marks from us with the one minor setback being their visual appeal in some of their candles.
I love that these candles are made with 2 wicks. It helped the candles achieve a full even melt pool in a short amount of time each and every time we lit it.
Custom text candles, quote candles, greeting candles, zodiac candles and more are all options you can choose for making your candles unique gifts as well. They also have the largest selection when it comes to scents you can choose, so there should be something for everyone.
Ring candles are really only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to products Jewelry Candles has available too. They also have wax roses, bath bombs, soaps, and tarts with jewelry inside also, so if candles aren’t your thing (I assume they are!) then you can still find something that you might be more interested in instead.
Their products don’t just stop at jewelry surprises either. They have a line of candles and bath bombs which contain cold hard cash rather than jewelry for those that are iffy about the stated jewelry values. Cash prizes range from $2 – $2500! It doesn’t just stop there, though. Just released, is their luxury line of candles that look exceptional and contain actual gold within them. Prices on these will fluctuate according to the market value so as they say.. buy low, sell high! You can find complete details on their cash candles here or check out their luxury gold candles here
Size: 18 oz wax
Wax Type: Premium natural soy wax
