Today we’re doing a product review of another candle company with a surprise inside: Marquee Candles!
Many of you know I have a tiny obsession with the whole Candles with a prize inside trend. When someone takes two of my favorite things (candles and jewelry) and adds in a mystery then I am hooked!! I love a treasure hunt and I love the Diamond Candles, Hidden Treasure Candles, and even the Jewelry Candles. I just heard about this new candle and couldn’t wait to try them out!
What sets Marquee Candles apart from the rest is that you will receive a mystery jewelry item (ring, necklace, earrings) that is real! Natural gemstones and either sterling silver or gold. That means if you get a ring you like that you can get it sized!! I think it’s very cool that the item inside is real jewelry!
I was so intrigued that I decided to buy a candle of my own to do a product review on it. The candle came packaged in a USPS mail box with bubble-wrap around a candle packed in black crinkle paper. The candle and packaging inside are very elegant and sets the tone for the higher end candle experience. The glass the candle comes in is a stemless wine glass so it’s pretty neat that you can use it after the candle is finished to drink out of. It feels delicate at the top (similar to a normal wine glass), so I’m not planning to let my kids use this glass.
The candle I ordered was Vanilla Bean and it smells so good! Vanilla is my favorite scent for bath and body products and this candle is amazing!! The candle itself is 12 oz. soy with a burn time of 90 to 115 hours. Each Marquee Candle has a guaranteed minimum prize value of $40. All of their jewelry has either a real Diamond, Emerald, Pearl, Ruby or Sapphire. all natural – no lab creations.
Chee and I worked together to get our prize out of the candle in this video. You can see the photo of our prize below the video.
Here’s our earrings! Thanks Marquee Candles!
These candles do run a little more than the other jewelry inside candles. Right now they’re $54.95 with $5 shipping. We got free shipping by buying the candle snuffer (which I think they do that promo quite often). It’s true that it’s double the cost of the other candles, but you are guarenteed to get a real piece of jewelry inside. I guess you can decide which you’d prefer. I am happy to know if I got a ring that it could be resized. You can’t say that about many of the others.
The jewelry we pulled out was a pair of Sapphire Earrings! We went onto Marquee Candles facebook page and typed in the serial number that came with the earrings and I found out that they’re 1.10 ct, genuine sapphire, and .925 silver!
