3-8-1 Genuine Jewelry Candle #Review

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.
Product Review
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!
Product Review

I Loved that it had glitter on top of it, I like all things that sparkle & shine.

Product Review

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.

  1. Christine Solazzo says:

    These 3-8-1 candles are absolutely amazing and this was a wonderful and thorough review. I have tried all different candles and 3-8-1 is by far superior. The scent fills my whole condo, yes I said WHOLE condo from just one candle. And the scent is just as strong from the first time you light it until the last…it never loses its scent. They burn so evenly and smooth and no black soot ever! And the jewelry….amazing!! Every single treasure is worth at least the value of the candle and my first one was worth 100 dollars! WOW. I just can’t say enough wonderful things about these candles. The only ones I will ever burn in this house again.

  2. Paula Feldman says:

    3-8-1 Candles…what can I say, they are the most amazing candles I have ever burned. The scent throw is better than any other candle. Now to the jewelry…I have received the most beautiful rings, necklaces and braclets. I just recently burned Bird of Paradise and not only did I love the smell, the color and glitter of the candle was such a beautiful royal blue. I would recommend 3-8-1 Candles to anyone looking for a top quality candle poured with love and a beautiful surpise at the the bottom.

  3. Alicia says:

    Great review, I felt the same way about my first 3-8-1 candle and can’t wait to order another! The wonderful scent seriously filled up my house! I like your photos of the candle too :)

  4. Amanda Jacobs says:

    Awesome review. I love 3-8-1 candles. So far i have only had one & i’m hooked! I had the Pink Sugar scent & received a caramel apple sample tart, both scents are amazing. I loved my necklace out of mine. I highly recommend 3-8-1 to candle lovers!

  5. Kathy says:

    I stumbled upon 3-8-1 candles and I am in LOVE with them. I have tried other candles with shiny things inside and they are nice but 3-8-1 are awesome. Even my husband who really doesnt care about candles said they are by far better. I am 100% addicted to them.

  6. Pat B. says:

    Great review…can’t wait to buy one of these candles for a friend of mine who LOVES candles!

  7. Cheryl says:

    This sounds like a wonderful company. I’m going to check it out right now. I like that they support Lyme Disease, and it sounds like if I want to buy one now is the right time. Thanks for letting us know about the big promotion

  8. Dianne says:

    How amazing to know you’re going to get something real each time. I’ve never heard of this company before. I have bought many candles in the past with no luck of getting anything real. I love the fact I know I will from this one. I will be placing an order very soon, I hope I’m the lucky winner of course!!

  9. Barb says:

    I’m in love with your ring! Are you sure I can’t have it? I don’t blame you, I wouldn’t share either what a gem you found there. I just checked out the website and the stars do have a magical quality about them. I also seen the deals on their 4 packs that means I would have four chances at the big prize. I just might have to do that before I head off to bed if the hubby can be sweet talked into it, which I’m very sure he can. I’m so fascinated by the meaning behind the company, so romantic Oooolala

  10. cecilia says:

    I just ordered my first candles……thanks to your review!

  11. Lynn Barrett says:

    I like the idea. LOVE all natural soy and that you get a real piece of Jewlery. Nice. Very thorough review too.

  12. Rebecca says:

    I have purchased a few 381 candles. I am the proud winner of the august big prize. I have given each ofmy sister in laws and my mother each a candle. I can not think of a better way to let them know I love them and truly appreciate them.

    The scent throw on for these candles I have not found anything that even comes close. The owner is one of the best ladies I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. I am a customer for life. Thank you Nicki for making these amazing candles. My pumpkin soufle candle smells just like I am cooking a pumpkin down for pies from scratch.

    You can not go wrong ordering from this company

    • Kimberly says:


      I’m so glad to meet you per say. So you have the beautiful ring that is in the giveaway collage, Congrats on a beautiful piece. I agree with you 100% about 3-8-1 Candles and Nicki. I’m also going to order candles for the women in my family for Christmas, I think these make the perfect gift with a wonderful surprise.

  13. Crystal says:

    These candles sound incredible! I do have a question, how is the price $30.99 but the value of the jewelry is a minimum of $39.99? She is basically paying people to purchase her candles? Going to put em on my Xmas list :)

    • crystal says:

      most likely she is able to buy her jewelry at wholesale price. So the piece might value $39.99 retail but she only spent say $15 on it, for example.

  14. Toni Holbrook aka:Native Heart says:

    I like that their scent last til the end & jewelry is always fun :)
