Are you a candle lover like I am?! If so I have a real treat for you. I was recently contacted by the sweet owner of 3-8-1 Candles. Sure, a candle company, but what makes this company different than the other 1000's of candle companies?! Each of their 22 oz. jar candles come with a REAL piece of jewelry in them!!! Yes, real, non of that costume jewelry or junky crap that will turn your fingers green. 
     Above, as you can see, I got the Black Raspberry Vanilla 22 oz candle. It was so hard to pick out of their set of 32 different scents! I knew exactly what this was when it showed up at my house before even looking at the return address. That right off the bat should tell you that they don't skimp on their fragrance! I literally could smell the sweet scent of this candle through the box.
     It is a double wick (which I LOVE, it burns nice and even) and they are all hand poured soft wax. It burns beautifully in its lovely thick glass jar that I plan to put to good use even after my candle is done. I just can't stop telling everyone I know about the quality of this candle and the way the scent lingers through the air even before I started burning it! It was on my nightstand and I couldn't figure out what the sweet smell I kept getting a whiff of was... and I didn't think of the candle because I hadn't even started burning it yet! But it was the candle! I honestly don't know how much better you can ask for in a candle, especially because I hate candles that barely have a smell.
     Now for the exciting jewelry part! I FINALLY reached the bottom of the candle where the jewelry is! I was thinking that I was going to have to clean wax off of it, but silly me, they put it safely in a plastic baggie and wrapped in tinfoil. I felt like I struck gold since I have been burning the candle for dayyysss waiting to see what my prize was. I got so excited when I seen a little of the tinfoil that I scooped it up with a spoon and opened it. 
     I also want to inform you, if you get one of these long lasting & room filling scented candles, in the 22 oz jar, do NOT attempt to dig out the jewelry! You most likely will ruin the candle. I mention this because I have read of people getting super excited (understandable) and just digging to the jewelry. With the scent that I got, I can't imagine rushing and ruining mine. I would have been so upset! So just let it burn and enjoy it till the end!!

Here is what I got in mine:

     EVERY 3-8-1 jewelry piece is crafted from genuine fine jewelry metals including Titanium, Tungsten, Stainless Steel, .925 Sterling Silver, 10k, 14k, and 24k gold. Each genuine jewelry piece has a retail value of $39.99 to $1,000. You might get a ring, a brooch, earrings, a bracelet, a necklace, or an anklet!
     I didn't just pull out a ring or a necklace, I got a set in mine!! I e-mailed the owner with this photo and she was kind enough to tell me what it was and it's worth! Here is what she said: "This is genuine Citrine with diamond accents set in .925 silver with a value of $190.00." SCORE!!! The 22 oz. jar itself is $30.99 and the jewelry is worth $190! (She also said I could get it looked at at a jeweler.) How exciting! Also diamond accents!? Tell me another candle company that no matter what you will get REAL jewelry and have a delicious scent list like theres! You NEED to check them out on Facebook as well, all the people on there are raving about how much they love their candles!
