You guys all know about my passion for candles and scents. Well, I have been hearing about these 3-8-1 candles and really wanting to try one. I was excited when I was given the chance to review one of these awesome candles! Have you heard of them yet? The 3-8-1 candles are a homemade scented candle made by Nicky Hildebrand of Wisconsin, right here in the USA. I love the name also. The 3-8-1 stands for 3 words, 8 letters, 1 meaning = I love you. Isn’t that cool?!
The 3-8-1 candles are special candles, in that each 22 oz jar candle has a REAL piece of jewelry embedded inside the wax! This is not fake or costume jewelry, but REAL jewelry! What set them apart from other jewelry candles is that it can be a ring, bracelet, earrings, necklace, anklet, brooch, ect.
They gave me a choice of which scent I wanted to try. This was not an easy decision, as they have 34 amazing scents to choose from! I was like a kid in a candy store, but finally decided on Banana Nut Bread. I seem to like the ‘kitchen smells’ as I call them. Just the smell of them burning makes it smell like you have been baking all day.
When I received the 3-8-1 candle, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. It comes in a nice thick square jar that was more than adequately wrapped for protection. The candle has a double wick, which helps the candle burn evenly. It also had a sprinkling of glitter on the top of the candle, which adds a nice sparkling touch. Before I even lit the candle, I could smell the mouth watering scent of Banana Nut Bread! Once lit, the candle burned evenly and filled the air with the light wonderful fragrance of baking Banana Nut Bread.
Then there was the surprise I knew would be inside. Some candles burn quickly, but not this one! Don’t get me wrong, this is a plus for the candle, just not my patience. I was anxious to get to my surprise. It ended up taking me days of burning the candle to get down to my surprise. My surprise ended up being at the bottom of the candle, but I finally reached it. I carefully pulled out the foil packet and then opened the plastic pouch inside of it.
My surprise was this pretty sterling silver ring with light green stones. The ring sparkles and glitters and when you get it in the sunlight, the stones really shine. When you look closely you can see different variations of color in it – very pretty! Mine has a .925 stamped on the inside of it. Each piece of jewelry in the 3-8-1 candles 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.
I give 3-8-1 candles a total thumbs up!
The scents are amazing. The candles are long burning, high value candles with just the right amount of scent. Plus, you get an added REAL jewelry surprise. I have got my eye on a couple of the other scents already. They had sent me a tart in the Crème Brûlée scent that is absolutely wonderful! If you like vanilla, you will love that one! Then there is the Christmas Hearth, the Fresh Baked Bread, and I can’t leave out the Blueberry Cobbler! With the scents that I choose, it’s no wonder I stay hungry all the time!
The 3-8-1 candles would make awesome gifts for a few of my candle loving family members and friends! At only $30.99 for the 22 oz jars, it’s just the right price for an impressive and fun gift! Not only will they get a nice high quality scented candle, but a fun surprise of a REAL piece of jewelry too!
