How long does it take to find a ring in your candles?
Jade: Hi @jpdossett!
Thanks for your question! The answer depends on what kind of candle you buy. First, we’ll talk about the amount of time it can take for your jewelry to emerge, and then I’ll tell you about the steps to get it out.
Our average sized candle (12-ounce jar candle) burns for about 80 hours. This varies based on several factors:
whether the wick is trimmed to the recommended length
whether all safety recommendations are followed (never burn longer than 4 hours!)
if the entire top surface of the candle melts during the first burn
You may start to see the top of your jewelry within the first few hours of burning but depending on the placement of the jewelry it could take as long as half of the candle’s total burn time before it’s ready to come out.
Always wait for the jewelry to be fully exposed before you remove it and make sure your candle is extinguished! If you dig the jewelry out early you could damage the candle or damage the jewelry.
When your jewelry is fully exposed and the candle is blown out, its safe to remove the jewelry from the jar and find out how much it’s worth. Click on the “Appraisal” header on our website then enter the code attached to your jewelry as well as your email. You’ll then find out how much your new jewelry is worth – from $15 - $5,000!
Thanks again for your question and enjoy your new jewelry!
Which is your favorite pick for a Galentine’s day gift, Jade?
Jade: Hi Caitlin,
One of my favorite unofficial holidays is Galentine’s Day because you can celebrate it anytime your girls need a get together! If you and the ladies are going to celebrate soon Jackpot has candles that will complement the theme of you and your besties having the best day ever.
It’s a given that Galentine’s is probably going to involve a few cocktails. In the spirit of spirits, I think the perfect candles for your party come from our wine glass collection.
These candles are great because they both smell like celebration! Chardonnay has top notes of champagne, lime, and orange peel mixed with a floral and sandalwood base while the Pinot Noir is authentically boozy with black cherry, spices, and a woody vanilla aroma. The girls are going to feel a little tipsy as soon as they arrive, and you’re left with surprise jewelry and the wine glasses too!
As if that isn’t enough, here’s a few thoughtful gifts ideas because nothing is too good for your forever friends!
