A Ring in a Candle?

Have you ever heard of the company JewelScent? I hadn't, until I received a JewelScent candle from my brother and future sister-in-law. I figured it was just an ordinary candle, but then my future sister-in-law informed me that there was a surprise buried in the wax. I was intrigued!


Apparently, JewelScent specializes in beauty products--including candles and soaps--that contain a piece of jewelry valued at $15-$7,500. Well when I found out that there was something in my candle that could be worth seven grand, I started burning it night and day.

It wasn't long before I noticed a shiny piece of foil in the pool of hot wax.


To avoid burning my fingers, I used a fork to fish the foil pouch out.


I unfolded the foil and found a beautiful ring wrapped in plastic, and it happened to fit perfectly on my right middle finger. The JewelScent website has a page where you can type in the serial number of your piece of jewelry and receive a free appraisal. Unfortunately, mine only ended up being worth $20, but it still looks great.


I'm always on the lookout for unique gifts, so I'll definitely be browsing the JewelScent website at Christmastime.

    I got one of those as a 4-H prize and got a pair of earrings in it. Don't think they're worth much, but they're cute, and the candle smells great!!!

    Ummm...for the cost of those candles, they'd better have something nifty hidden inside! :-O

    I never seen ones with jewelry in them. I have seen soap with money inside $5 up to $100 dollars. I got a soap with $50.00 in it.
    I see them in Miles Kimball mag.

    Does the candle smell good? I've been thinking about getting these for my mom but was a little worried about whether the smell is overwhelming or not.

    Jewelry is a nice gift. I notice different places clear out jewelry at up to 75% off. Once I got a silver locket for someone for Christmas that way. They thought I broke my piggy bank to get it. That is what I wanted them to think.

    That sounds like an interesting gift to give. Your candle is pretty, as well as the ring.
