Jackpot Candles aren’t just any other jewelry candle. Nope, there’s a twist.
They offer a large selection of candles and tarts in a multitude of scents and each one contains a little surprise inside.
But here’s the twist, you get to choose what your surprise is (pick from earrings, rings, and necklaces), and you have the option of selecting your ring size. Which is great if you’re like me and have man-hands.
For me, choosing what I wanted was super easy. I’m a lover of anything cinnamon and an earring hoarder. So, I chose the Cinnamon Sensation candle (click here to see the candle I chose) with earrings as my jewelry of choice. Although, I was very tempted by the Caramel Coffee Latte scent.
Less than a week after making my selection, my candle arrived. Not only was shipping super quick, but it was packaged very well. No chance of breakage here. Something that, as a constant online buyer/seller I can really appreciate.
It took about 7 hours of burn time to reach the foil wrapped surprise in my candle, with me impatiently checking nearly every hour to see if it was visible yet. I had a really hard time restraining myself from speeding up the process and doing a little exploring, but I did. On their Tips page, Jackpot Candles actually recommends that you not do any digging for the hidden jewelry as it can cause your candle to tunnel or burn unevenly.
There’s an upside to having to be patient: I was able to enjoy all of the cinnamon goodness for those hours.
Unlike a lot of other candles I’ve bought over the years, this one is strong. I could literally smell it in almost every room in the house. And since I was doing chores and milking goats during part of those 7 hours, every time I opened the door to come in I was met with a refreshing wave of cinnamon-ness that made me think of Christmas in February, snickerdoodles, and cinnamon lattes 🙂
Now, before I reveal my surprise, let me give you a little information about the candles and tarts:
They’re made in the USA.
They’re made from 100% natural soy wax, which means they have a clean burn that lasts longer than paraffin waxes.
Soy wax is a renewable resource, so they’re sustainable.
They are hand poured, and are made with a cotton wick, not lead.
Each one contains a piece of jewelry worth anywhere from $15 to $5000.
If your surprise is one of the more expensive pieces of jewelry and contains diamonds, they are conflict free.
After 7 hours of burning, I finally reached the little foil wrapped package hidden inside. I blew the candle out, took a pair of tweezers out, and unwrapped my surprise.
A pair of pink stud earrings.
Included with each piece of jewelry is a little tag with an ID number. To find out how much your jewelry is worth, simply visit the Jackpot Candles’ Appraise page and type in the number.
I loved this feature, since it took all of the guesswork out of figuring out how much my jewelry was worth.
My earrings were only worth $15, but they’re one of my favorite colors so I’m really happy with them!
