I was a bit nervous about a candle arriving in a box. I was told that if it was broken, to let them know. That made me nervous as well. The box finally came and all worries were unnecessary. They pack these SUPER well.
Yay for a recycled box!!
The first thing I did was to search the candle to find the gold circle. The gold circle shows WHERE your ring is. This is important. Mine was over an inch down. I knew I was in for a long ride.
I set my candle on the mantle and lit it and settled in. I was DETERMINED not to go wax diving early. I WOULD have the willpower to wait it out.
When I got pregnant for the first time with Aidan I acquired the superhuman power of "smell all the things". Over seven years later, I still smell all the things. I was a bit scared. When I smelled the candle, I smelled it, if that makes sense. Normally things get a bit overpowering when this happens.
I lit the candle and noticed it had a nice spicy scent. Not too over powering. It took (yes, I literally timed it) 9 minutes for me to notice it when I walked by. That isn't bad. The scent was soon filling my house with its warm cozy aroma.
So it burned....
And burned. FINALLY it got to the part where the top of the sticker was hitting the liquid wax.
I quickly took the candle to the kitchen table, blew it out, and peered down into it. It was a bit smokey, but I saw the ring. I SAW THE RING!
The cool thing about these is that the candle is so which means it burns slower (It took almost 9 hours to reach my ring. Yes...I timed it) ALSO, soy wax burns at a rather lower temperature, so when I reached in there with a fork and pulled out the little packet,I didn't burns my fingers!
The foil came out. The suspense was killing me. It was HARD to stop and take pictures. I knew that this ring was either worth $10, $100, $1,000, or $5,000. Even if it was only a $10, that means the ring was $10 and the candle was about $15. That isn't bad!
Here is the foil...
I opened the foil and saw another pouch. This time a clear baggy. I could see through that it was silver. That is good. I am not a gold girl. White gold, yes. Gold gold, no.
I opened the little plastic baggie and inside was this:
I was SUPER impressed. The ring is SO pretty. It was rather light so I quickly checked for anything on the inside, nada. So I received a $10 ring. Still though, I like it.
Unfortunately I have chubby fingers and it fits my pinkie. I wear an 8 on my ring finger, so this was maybe a 6?
This will be going into V's jewelry box for in the future. It is too big for her now, but I think she will love it!
Good luck and even though it isn't on the Rafflecopter, I would LOVE to hear suggestions on which I should get next! Leave a comment below!
