Jewelry in Candles Apple Cider Tart Review


Candles have come a long way and for years, companies have been creating new ways to jazz things up. At Jewelry in Candles (JIC), their products are all hand-made in the U.S. and are made with 100% soy wax. They also include an elegant piece of surprise jewelry inside like rings, necklaces and earrings! I was recently contacted by JIC's rep, Sarah Scott, and she has some wonderful things to say about JIC.
"I started in January 2015 and love the concept of jewelry inside of each candle and tart. You get to choose the size of the ring you want and also choose between a men or women's ring. When becoming a rep, there is no quota, no pressure and JIC is very supportive with each and everyone of their reps. They also keep you updated on their new scents every week as well as answer all of your questions you may have.  Jewelry in Candles also carries special candles or tarts that are bonuses for the holidays like Valentines day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, 4th of July, Halloween and Christmas. I am very thankful to be a part of this amazing company and to be a member of their awesome team!"
As you can see, Sarah is very pleased with JIC and she loves being a rep. To be honest, I'd have to say that I enjoy them as well! A couple years ago I did a review on one of their candles (this was when they were just starting out) and I fell in love with it. I still have the candle too! Recently Sarah sent me one of JIC tarts to review since I haven't tried them yet.


This tart right here is Apple Cider and it came with a size 7 ring. If you take a look on the site, you get to choose the jewelry and the size that you want! Which is a plus! I wouldn't want to get a candle or tart with jewelry in it and then the ring I get doesn't fit... 


These tarts can be used on a tart warmer that is either used with a tea light candle or used with an electric warmer. I had this tart warmer in my garage since last summer and this is my first time using it. I've never used tarts before, so that's why it sat in there for so long. It's fall themed to, but a warmer is a warmer, right? lol.


With the tart, I grabbed the piece that I knew would have the ring in it so that I can reveal the treasure to you. After placing the candle in the warmer, the tart slowly began to melt. Surprisingly, it doesn't take as long as I though it would. In less than 10 minutes, my tart was fully melted and became liquid. You can also see that the foil the jewelry is wrapped in is revealed and ready to open. Let me also point out to that the smell of the tart is amazing! The living room, kitchen and the hallway smelled like freshly made apple cider! My husband even noticed it when he walked in the door and asked me if I was making something.


Here is the ring all wrapped up and ready to be cleaned. When your cleaning the jewelry, be sure to have plenty of paper towels! It can get a little messy... But, I can say that after your done cleaning, your fingers smell like the tart.

And the ring is now revealed! Isn't it a stunning one? It's a bit big with the gem, but I love the color of it. On certain angles, when the light reflects off of it, it looks like water crystals is a deep sea. That's one of my favorite things about this ring. I did check to see if there were any markings around the inside of the band and I didn't find anything. So, it's a $10 ring, but it's still is a very nice one and also it's unique.

I browsed through a few of the photos they have in the "Jewelry Reveal" section and I haven't seen a ring on there like mine. So that right there says that there is a wide variety of rings in different sizes, colors and designs. Overall, I'd have to say that JIC is still on top of their game and it's worth checking out. This is my second product from them and I love it! I might be getting myself some more tarts soon or even another one of their candles!

  1. I really don't get the jewelry in candles concept, but it sounds like a good company. I like that the reps don't have a quota.

    1. Basically what they do is place a piece of jewelry of your choice and size in each candle. Each piece of jewelry is valued at a different price and can be any where from $10 to the thousands. It is a great company and they have a wide selection of wonderful scents!

  3. I love the Jewelry in Candles and I have two of them, but I have not taken out the Jewelry yet. I have a Diamond Candle that I got a gorgeous ring out of that is blue, but I do not know what it is worth. These candles make great gifts and they are not expensive!

  4. I haven't yet gotten the "surprise" candles or tarts from anyone yet. I've actually never used wax tarts before, but looks like they work really well. The ring that you got is really lovely! The color is great.

    1. Some companies put the jewelry in a little baggie separate from the tart, but I like the surprise idea from JIC.

  13. l really like the idea of surprise jewelry in a candle or tart. Apple Cider is an amazing scent too. I really like the scents that make the house smell like baked goodies. The only problem is that it makes me hungry sometimes.

    1. I know what you mean, lol. When the tart melted, the rooms were filled with the scent of Apple Cider and right away, I wanted to have a glass. But, I don't have any so that didn't help much, lol.

  15. I've never tried any of the companies that put jewelry in candles but I think it's such a cool concept. I LOVE that Jewelry in Candles sell tarts. I prefer to use scent warmers over burning candles most of the time but all I ever see is jewelry in standard candles. Thanks for the post!

    1. To be honest, I like tarts a lot better than candles as well. They spread the good smell around the house more than a candle, lol.

  17. I like that you can choose to get earrings since I'm not big on rings. Your ring is lovely.

    1. You know, I can say that I feel the same way. Whenever I get a candle like this, I always think I'd get some crappy looking ring and end up being bummed, lol. But, so far I've received some nice jewelry and I love how unique looking they are.

  19. I love using tarts and the added bonus of a piece of jewelry is great too!

    1. It is a super fun gift idea and I know a lot of people that would love something like this. It's also a great thing to get because the jewelry in each candle is unique and I have not seen 2 rings alike!

  24. I think these candles are a fun idea. I like that you can choose your size of ring and if you want a men's or women's ring.

    1. That's one of the great things about JIC, being able to choose the size of the ring and what gender. It makes things a lot simpler for you and the selection of jewelry they put in each candle and tart is always different.
