When you do reviews it’s a given from time to time you’re going to see a company that makes just say WOW, is this for real? So you just have to check it out and see what more you can find out.
3-8-1 Candles is one of those WOW companies for me, I first went to their fan page to read about them, then I found the website. The first thing you see when you go to the website is stars falling all around your cursor and you feel like there is something magical about it from the very start.
As you’re reading everything they offer and scroll down you see the 3-8-1 Candles logo with the green ribbon showing they support Lyme Disease Awareness. This is something not many are even aware of, let along support and help raise money for. Right off Kudos to them, this coming for my family and I who stand strongly behind supporting cancer in our county.
3-Words 8-Letters 1-Meaning = I LOVE YOU, Nicki Hildebrand’s name for her company came from the inscription she put in her husbands wedding band. She started her company in January of 2012 and the grand opening was launched on June 1st of 2012, she has been making candles for 12 years. 3-8-1 Candles are hand poured in Genoa City, Wisconsin right in her own backyard, where her husband lovingly built her a shop. She quit her career to make her dream come true, with the support of her family and friends.
I knew I just had to try one of their 22 0z Genuine Jewelry Candles, where in each candle no matter what you know each piece of jewelry is going to be real. So I crossed my fingers and contacted Nicki for a review. When she said yes, I was doing the happy dance all over my living room and couldn’t wait for it to get here. Since I have an acid in my body that eats through any jewelry that isn’t real, I was fascinated that no matter what, I would be able to wear whatever my surprise was going to be from my candle. It was going to for sure be, .925 Sterling Silver,14k,10k,24k gold, Tungsten,Titanium, Stainless Steel, with a $39.99 to $1,000 retail value. To make the anticipation even more you have no clue what type of jewelry you’re going to find, it could be an anklet, earrings, ring, bracelet, brooch, or necklace. Needless to say I was supper excited!
I Loved that it had glitter on top of it, I like all things that sparkle & shine.
I picked True Loves Spell, OH what a wonderful, amazing scent that fills your home. I’m in love with this scent! The jar is very thick, so after you’re done with your candle it can be reused.
You get a sample tart with each order, I love butterflies & the scent I received was Green Tea & Lemongrass, which is also a wonderful scent.
Oh 3-8-1 Candles let the torture begin. There is nothing that lets you know where your surprise is, I will tell everybody right now, its at the VERY bottom. It took me three days of burning my candle as much as I could to get to my prize. Patience is a virtue I sadly lack, but I had to have, since digging for it was strongly not suggested, since each piece is genuine jewelry, you would be very sad it you broke it trying to get it out. So I waited……..& waited……….& waited…….it was SOOOOOO worth it!!!!!
I would like you to meet my beautiful ring, sorry it’s mine and you can’t have it, but you’re more than welcome to stare at it all you want. I still sometimes look at in and smile, I can’t believe I got something so beautiful out of a candle and it’s genuine jewelry!!!
The stone is Genuine Citrine, 10K gold filigree ring…also in .925,
there are two stamps on the inside – both 10k and .925, retail value of the ring is $239.99!!!!!! Hello……………….I have just found the only candle I will buy from now on with jewelry in it. Give me a 100% known fact I’m getting something real, or a “chance” I just “might” get lucky and get something real, I’m going to pick the 100% everytime! I’m not a gambler, but even I can tell you 100% is the best odds you can get.
The details on the sides of this ring are just amazing, no pictures I take can do this ring justice and trust me I have taken many trying to capture what I’m wanting without being able to show you the true beauty.
