Buying My First Charmed Aroma Candle

I first saw the ad for Charmed Aroma Candles on Facebook and was instantly intrigued. I love candles, so that was the first attraction. The second being that they included a mystery ring inside each candle—the value fluctuating from $10 to $5000.

I did a bit of research on their Facebook and Instagram profiles, as well as their official website. They seem legit. Many customers posted images or even videos of what they call their "Ring Reveals," when they find and unwrap the package in the wax containing their mystery rings. The company has a large collection of the rings available to view on its website with the estimated values beneath. However, if a customer posts a photo of a ring style that isn't on the website, Charmed Aroma will get back to the customer in a couple of days to inform him or her of its value.

Between browsing both their Instagram and Facebook, I saw rings valued from $10 to ones over $200. The value can be seen, as the $10 rings really do look like $10 rings, and the more expensive ones are quite beautiful.

The more expensive rings, according to Charmed Aroma, do not come in the candle. Rather, you will receive a serial number, and when you call them to tell them the number, they will ship you the ring. It makes sense, I suppose, not to wrap a diamond in plastic and aluminium foil and shove it into wax. I have yet to come across anyone revealing a serial number. One can guess that these rings are few and far between.

So, after contemplation, I decided, based off my love for candles and jewelry, that I would take the leap and order one of their candles. I chose the scent of Emerald Lime. (Their other scents are vanilla, peach, and sweet pea). Before taxes and shipping, the candle was $25. With taxes and shipping, it came to around $35. Charmed Aroma is a Canadian company, and I'm Canadian, so these costs may differ for someone outside of the country.

You can just start to see the foil containing the ring becoming visible, right by the label.

Reasonable Shipping Time and Fantastic Scent

I placed my order right before Christmas, so I knew it wouldn't arrive quickly. It came in about two and a half weeks, which is not a bad wait considering it was the holidays. I must say I was totally excited while I was waiting, however, so the wait felt long. The candle arrived at my parent's home after I had already gone back to university, so I had to wait until I went home next to open it.

It came in a relatively small box with adequate bubble wrap. The candle jar, made out of glass, was intact without any damage. So, shipping was a success.

I quickly smelled the candle, and it had a strong, fresh lime scent, which filled the room before it was even lit. My father came into the living room and asked what the good smell was, and was surprised to learn it was the unlit candle. I wasn't the only one who enjoyed the aroma.

I trimmed the three wicks and lit it. The smell was fantastic, and the candle itself was aesthetically pleasing when lit. It burned for two to two and a half hours before I was able to see the foil containing my ring. I allowed the wax around it to liquefy before I attempted the removal. Then, I blew out the candle and removed the package quite easily with a butter knife. Be careful of the hot wax. I've seen people remove their packages while their candles were still lit—I wouldn't suggest this as you're looking to get burned.

Revealing My Ring: My First Impressions

I had paper towel laid out ready for the foil package and let the bit of wax on it cool a bit so I could just peel it off the foil. The foil unwrapped rather easily, and inside, sealed in a tiny plastic bag, was my ring!

As I've said before, I did quite a bit of snooping on Charmed Aroma's sites, and so I recognized the style of the ring. It was a crystal "halo" ring and, if I remembered correctly, was one of the more pricey ones.

The ring fit my middle finger comfortably. I have fairly tiny fingers, and Charmed Aroma randomizes their ring sizes with the most common sizes (6, 7, 8). Judging that the ring fit on my largest finger, I'm guessing it's a size 7 1/2 - 8. It is beautiful! I took my picture for Instagram and Facebook and went on its website to see the value. It appeared that the ring is cubic zirconia with rhodium plating, valued at $80. Not bad for a $25 candle!

The ring has got me many compliments and at first seemed to be of good quality. For the first few wears, it retained its shine well and didn't turn my finger green.

The ring! Ignore my ugly hands—I'm in the army.
The ring! Ignore my ugly hands—I'm in the army.

The Quality of the Ring: Was It a Good Value?

Unfortunately, after wearing the ring for some time, it did begin to turn my finger green. Whether or not washing my hands accelerated this process, I was disappointed. For what they said the ring was worth, I wouldn't have expected for that to happen. Of course, there's the fix of coating any jewellery like that with clear nail polish, but personally I don't see the point. I wear three rings every day; two are gold and one is silver. I don't want a ring turning my finger green. It looks terrible, and it's a sign that what you're wearing is cheap.

It makes me question the actual supposed value of the rings that Charmed Aroma advertises on their webpage. However, I'm aware they have a large collection of rings that are made of different materials. This ring was beautiful until it began to tarnish. I haven't really worn it since. The process of Charmed Aroma is exciting, but from now on if I want a candle, I'll buy a normal one—and I'll stick to jewellery that doesn't turn my skin green.

Would you buy a candle from Charmed Aroma?

      I got a Hidden Gems Candle as a gift. I was able to pick out the candle & smell I wanted I was there when it was bought. I felt like it was a waste of money and that I wouldn't get much more than a $10 ring...I almost told him to put it back.

      I pulled out a 18K rose gold diamond & yellow tourmaline ring worth 1,350!! for real.

      Bought the candle at a store in the mall on sale 29.99 in NB, Canada. Not bad for a $30 candle!!

      I WOULD suggest Hidden Gems & my ring is beautiful, in fact I have NOT taken it off other than to show it off.

      Good luck!

      Personally, I wouldn't be completely deterred by the quality of the piece of jewellery as the price for the candles and bath bombs isn't a ridiculous amount that I would expect better. It's like a nice added gift to the product that I think would be fun.

      I have now purchased 3 things from them, 2 candles and a bath bomb. All lovely scents, I plan to buy a few more of each over the next little while. I love candles, and pretty jewelry is just a plus. All 3 rings have been valued at $150. The first was a size 7, and came with a gem ring, and a band. The band fits perfect, but the gem ring was a little tight for both being the same size. The next time i ordered I ordered a size 8 candle and a 7 bath bomb and the 7 fits much better than the first and the 8 fits my middle finger perfectly as well. Although beautiful, the size 8 ring from the July birthstone candle is a little clunky, and looks more like costume jewelry, but I still love it. Cant wait to buy more.

      I have had no issues with charmed aroma. I got 3 rings that were $30-$80 and any from $100 to $250.

      Now they are all Sterling silver and you can buy your size except the Champaign one. It's Sterling with random size.

      Also as for coustermer service I have delt with them fur to an issue and they sent me a new candle. Another time I didn't get the free promo necklace so they sent it separately. So no issues with them at all. I say try it and if you have issues try being civil with them and you will be treated as a valued customer.

      I bought two rings: one from the body butter was $200and one from a bath bomb was $150z. I really like my rings a lot. I wear them everyday and get lots of looks and compliments. They are sturdy rings and I plan to buy a few more.

      Received my candle in 1week after ordering which isn't too bad but I ordered a size 8 and got a size 9 which is too big for my fingers. I even went back to my order form and yes it says size 8. Very disappointing for my first order. Not sure if I will order again.

      bought a couple as gifts for my wife and daughters and they loved them! they appreciate the jewelry that was inside got them a variety of necklaces earrings and rings worth at the most $1450 and down to $150 they are amazing pieces of jewelry considering you receive them in a candle! last time i checked you dont receive amazing prizes inside pinyatas or kinder surprises...i think it is a bonus to have a possibility of receiving a $5000.00 ring! obviously some people do not appreciate jewelry and are quite honestly looking for a get rich quick scheme...

      You should have your rings independently appraised rather than depend on the appraisal from the company you acquired the candles from. Then you would know their true value.

      I tried to return products due to finding out rings are fake. The candles burn way too fast.

      I sent multiple emails requesting to return products, at least 5 emails, I never received a single reply to return and get a refund. When I emailed several times about invalid appraisal codes it took months to get one code appraisal. The other codes I never got. I wont be purchasing from charmed aroma again. They are way overpriced, fake jewellery, terrible customer service, awful response time, and their candles burn too fast. Simply put, overhyped and overpriced. I will make sure everyone knows.

      I've been on here awhile ago but I have to say that I can't complain about anything! I bought 11 candles and they were all worth over $100! I had one broken so I sent them an e-mail and they sent me another candle. I picked it up today and when it was time, I took out my aluminum foil and I didn't receive just one ring, there was 2! I looked it up and it was worth $150! It's like going to the casino! Lol

      If the ring was actually sterling silver it shouldn't have turned your finger green. Sterling silver doesn't do that when worn, not matter how long or short of a time you where it.

      Personally I wonder how the company can stay afloat selling candles that are far cheaper than the $50-$200 rings or more. If they actually cost as much as they said they probably would be losing enough money to be out of business.

      Ok these candles really do make the house smell nice, but lot all people have size 6 fingers. Out of 5 candles most of the rings are small. Not happy about this.

      I've purchased a few of these candles because they leave my rooms with an awesome aroma. They are attractive candles, I love the scents and the prices are not bad at all. You can pay from $26 to about $70 for candles, if you are are so lucky to get an expensive ring in your candle (yeah for you) but if it's the jewelry you are buy it for then go to a jewelry store. To feel "ripped off" because you bought a candle because you heard they smell really nice and make your home smell nice and then complain because you didn't get an expensive ring in your $26 candle is a head shaker. Candle store vs Jewelry store. The fact that you have a chance to win a beautiful expensive piece for jewelry should be incentive enough, and in the meantime, sit back, relax and enjoy the the aroma in your home.

      Each individual has its own decision. Somebody like Earrings, Rings, Bracelets. Be that as it may, i like Diamond Jewelry most. I think accessory with little pendant and little studs are the best gems for all. In some cases platinum or white gold rings likewise look great.

      I bought a sterling ring size candle and received a $200 ring but after a week of wearing it a bunch of the stones fell out! When I contacted them, they said they would replace it with a new ring. It took two months of me asking for a tracking number and whether or not it had been shipped until it finally arrived. Before it arrived I had contacted them saying I still had not received it and they said they would authorize another ring. When I opened the package that contained my new ring, IT WAS MISSING STONES ALREADY! According to the online appraisal my new ring was work $150 supposedly. The ring is beautiful but it was defective. I am so frusterated with the quality of the company. If I had known how crappy the rings were I never would have bought one of their candles. I would have gone to Bath and Body works and bought a better smelling candle for way less money. I will never buy from them ever again.

      I just wrote a comment but after reviewing everybody else's I guess I'm one of th lucky ones that had fantastic service! They had a special, buy 3 get 2 free. They were the 3 wink ones in a silver fancy kinda bowl with a lid. I also ordered 2, 2 wink candles. So I had a total of 7 rings, 5 rings were worth $150.00 and 2 were worth $200.00! Then before Christmas I ordered myself 4 two wick candles. I burned one last night and took the candle out. It was worth $250.00! I still have 3 so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get one with just a code in it. I know I'm dreaming but you never know! Wish everybody had great service like I did!

      I ordered 2 Charmed Aroma Candles on December 2, 2016. No warning of delays in my order, actually no email to me. I inquire after 2 weeks of hearing and receiving nothing. This is when they say to me that they were not sure where to ship my order, even though in the order process it clearly has a shipping address and a billing address. Then hear nothing until I email again and again and again...with no responses to me at all...advising anything. Finally I get a credit to my account with no explanation. I email and ask what this is for and they advise Dec 28/16 that I am only receiving 1 candle. I get a "sorry we are busy" email. No compensation or discount on my next order...So I have cancelled with them and will NEVER order a candle from Charmed Aroma again. Charmed they are not!

      You should check our Royal Canadian Candles. Located in Brantford Ontario. Www.royalcanadiancandles.com. They are 1000 times better than charmed. Charmed uses soy blend with parafin. Royal uses 100% soy. Also Royal Canadian candles allow you to select ring sizes and their jewellery is sterling silver that won't turn your finger green. Yes charmed has a office in Canada but they are an American company.

I have sent an email every week since asking for an tracking number or if my order was even shipped.

      I wish Charmed Aroma would turn on the review button for their FB page so they could more efficiently deal with customer concerns. I placed two orders with them, one on November 23rd and another on November 28th, 2016. I am still waiting for a response and for my items to be delivered.

      Below is what I posted to their Facebook page, sent in a private message as well as by email to them.

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Beware of this company and their lack of customer service!! Report them to the BBB if they have taken your money on the promise that you will have your items within 4-5 business days, as promised to me and so may others OVER A MONTH AGO.

      THEY EVEN SEND OUT FAKE TRACKING NUMBERS.

      This is what Canada post website says when I try and track the package:

      A shipping label has been created by the shipper. Once the shipment arrives in our facility, tracking status and the expected delivery date will be updated. Check back for updates or sign up for email notifications.

      So much for getting my Christmas gifts shipped over seas in time. That is, if I ever receive them myself!

      I don't care how great this product may be, I or anyone I know WON'T EVER purchase from them again. I'm quite upset as you can tell, but after spending $600 bucks on Charmed Aroma products as Christmas gifts, not receiving them and no customer support to answer my inquiries ( yet they can post often on FB, Twitter etc.), I am starting to think I've been taken. Does anyone else know of another course of action a person can take to resolve these issues and get your money back if the items never come?

      I also see ring codes missing, stones falling out, and complaints on the lack of customer service. I hope instead of deleting this message, Charmed Aroma will address this with true sincerity, honesty and regret, and not in their usual generic manner.

      ~~~~~~~~

      I posted this after trying to contact them several times, and they deleted it as well as everyone else's complaints, plus blocked me. For the time, effort and money I've put into this, I could have bought the wax and a cheap ring and done it all myself. Buyer beware!!

      Gave a candle to a girlfriend for her birthday , her ring was Damaged, since September I have been trying to get a hold of this people, first of all, no one returns calls it's all through emails, they keep saying 1-3 weeks over two months have passed by, no ring, not a returned call from a manager like i requested multiple times on my emails. Worse customer service, bunch of liers ,they are pretty fast to ship when you buy , wait till you have a problem and nothing gets resolved. I stop buying from them despite have ordering over $1000.00 worth in candles over the past year.

      Caution ... do not order these products. I ordered a size 5 ring size candle and was sent a size 8 ring inside instead. I contacted customer service and they said they would mail me a replacement ring but that the value would be random (not necessarily the value of the size 8 ring I received). This happened back in August 2016 ... it is now November 2nd 2016 and I have STILL NOT received my size 5 sterling silver replacement ring - even though customer care has supposedly mailed it to me twice . I have not received any replacement ring AND they made me ship back the size 8 ring to them before processing the exchange ... so now I am even worse off as I have no ring at all.

      also customer service does not offer any tracking information when replacing an incorrect item. I will not be ordering from this company again.

      Bought bath bombs and candles love both of them. Bath bombs have Sterling silver rings so no 5000.00 rings but way cheaper. My ring from bath bomb 200.00 and it's beautiful ,same with candle. People need to remember your buying the candle and focus on that. It's like kinder eggs for adults. I am buying many more bath bomb as I was very happy with the quality and it was fun. We all could use this in our lives. I thought the candle was well worth the money alone as a candle, as was bath bombs so the prize is just a bonus. Good luck to all waiting on them.

      i bought one last christmas, the ring was supposedly a 60$ ring but i wanted a second opinion so i went to a professional appraiser and he said the ring wasn't worth a dime. so upset, i went to facebook and messaged charmed aroma telling them this... what they told me is that they appraise the rings according to how much they think it should be worth not how much it is actually worth, so the rings are worthless

      wonderful experience with Aroma Candles and Rings. We came across the website randomly as I was searching for a very particular wedding band for myself . The local jewerly stores in the area had nothing like it. my now husband would have had to have had it custom made. I was so excited to find exactly what I was looking for on Aroma Candles and Rings and for half the price we were quoted locally . He got his band at the same time over going to a local store. the rings are so comfortable too www.olshoppers.com

      My ring was appraised by their website at $90.00 within a short period of time it started to tarnish. This is crazy, a $90.00 ring shouldn't tarnish.

      I am not opposed to costume jewelry but what bothers me is them saying it is worth $90.00 when it clearly is not.

      Re: Jenna saying 925 is a Walmart "brand"

      925 is the stamp signifiying that the metal is sterling silver.

      "Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925."

      Please correct me if I am wrong.. BUT "925" is Walmart brand jewelry...

      Not to say that is a bad thing, but would give hint that the ring is not worth more than $50.00. IF you look through the Walmart online jewelry, you'll see a remarkable resemblance in the rings.

      It was fun to receive my purchase from Charm Aroma and dig out my ring.. Their site said it was worth $200.00, but I'm not taking it into the pawn shop for a pay out that's for sure. Its fun and exciting. The Grapefruit soap smells DEVINE!

      take it for what it is. lol But I would defiantly contact them about quality control if the ring tarnishes quickly.

      I ordered the more expensive candle, altogether it came to about $60 with tax and shipping. The ring I got is gorgeous and when I put the value code into their website it came up at $200.00

      I won't lie, I'm not entirely convinced that this is the true value, but I'm pleased with it and as the article says it's a pretty cool process.

      I just retrieved two rings from the two candles I received from Charmed Aroma. The first one is elegant, very pretty, and stamped 925. I was too impatient, so I think the code tag is still in the candle with some of the foil. The second, pretty, but not 925, and worth 50$, whatever. I didn't expect anything more , so I am not disappointed, and, a candle-holic, love the candles! The hidden rings are like a bonus lottery, except you do win something, every single time. If anything, it's entertaining, and smells lovely!

      Loved the concept and was extremely excited but held off for several months before I decided, screw it, just get a couple. If anything I'd be left with a nice candle. There are several pictures on the website of all the different rings and apparently the people who post their pictures are just the ones who recieved gorgeous rings. When I was looking at all the pictures I loved all the pictures I was seeing. Me falling for it, thought I'd receive rings like the pictures, therefore I ordered three candles. Shipping was great, came in an amazing amount of time. When I opened the box two of the candles were broken and the other one was missing a lid. As I was boring them I was extremely impatient and excited because I am a ring finatic and could barely wait. After waiting three hours and still seeing nothing a started digging..I finally found all three.. Number 1 was not bad looking, appraised at $80 and fit perfect. Wasn't exactly my taste but, still a nice ring. Number 2 is absolutely hideous! Looked it up and worth $80, again. The bag was ripped so there was a bit of wax on the ring so i ran it gently under some water and the cheap red centre stone fell out and went directly down the drain! Last candle..my hopes were really high because of all that had already happened. Start opening the foil, couldn't really see the ring through the bag, snipped the bag open and dropped the ring out. I appraised in my head thinking is there an option for the rings to be worth $1 because that is what this one is worth. Was the cheapest, ugliest ring I have ever set eyes on. Appraised it, $40. Hugely disappointment and now all I was left with was okay smelling candles and a mess! A family friend of mine who custom made my engagement ring also appraises jewelry. For fun when he was over I inquired how much he would appraise them for. He looked at all three and said $20 after. In my head I'm thinking $20 each, not bad considering. Nope! $20 for all three combined and the only reason $20 because of the metal for first ring. Who the f*** do they have appraising these rings?

      All three, I gave to my 4 year old daughter in her jewelry box. Not even tasteful enough to wear as costume jewelry.

      Thanks Charmed Aroma!

      Omg you guys!! They are beautiful smelling, long lasting quality candles. It's exciting to get the ring, yes, but I've paid more for jar candles without rings. It's fun, and different, and obviously not for everyone, if you are expecting to buy a $25 candle ( great price), and get a diamond ring, perhaps you shouldn't be spending your money this way! If you can't afford to buy the candle, without hoping to recoup your money through the ring.......move on. These are like " surprise bags" for adults....does anyone ever remembering getting anything extrodinarly expensive in a surprise bag as a kid.....no, but it was so fun opening it!

      I love these candles, and don't even wear the rings, just collect them, in a drawer for the kids to play with, Im going to make another order right now! Lol, enjoy them the way you should, as candles with a surprise !

      When the rhodium plating wears out, your finger might turn green when wearing it. If you really like the ring, get it replated for $35.

      I did order a Vanilla Crepe candle and I loved it. The smell was amazing. Still is. I did get my first ring and it was gorgeous. So it was valued at $30 but it was still beautiful. It did turn my finger green so when I facebook messaged Charmed Aroma, I immediately got a response from them. When I explained that even if I coated the ring in clear nail polish I would still get that reaction (from past experience) they said they would send me a replacement. I just got my replacement and it looks like a cross. Again, gorgeous and they said its valued at $75. After only a few hrs of wearing it, my finger started to get itchy. Regardless of the plating, I still love their jewelery and will give these to my girls to play with and will still order their candles again. Maybe my fingers are sensitive to the rhodium, who knows. I hope that one day I get the 925 stamped ones. Still pleased with customer service. They were super friendly.

      Customer service is absolutely terrible !! Got my first notification of shipping and the link did not work. Emailed asked for proper tracking and a day later got a response. That tracking number worked but said my order was delivered to the wrong address. Emailed charmed aroma again. 3 days later finally got an answer saying they woul open an investigation. After sending 3 more emails and waiting 2 weeks they replyed saying they would send a replacement order in 2-4 weeks. Now three weeks later tell me one of the scents I ordered is discontinued. I again emailed asking what they were going to do to satisfy a very upset customer and as usual no reply. Don't waste your time and money on this company. There is absolutely no customer service and they really don't care about their customers !

      I wouldn't have such a problem with this company if they would stop putting fake appraisals in these candles, i have been buying and selling jewelry and jewelry making supplies for 15 years and i can tell you most of those rings can be purchased in China for a few dollars and no way are they worth what they are saying. The thing that bothers me is people get these rings and thinking they are valuable go to a jeweler to get it re sized thinking it worth $100 and then only to be told its worth $5 and the person is left feeling very embarrassed. I mean why do they even have to put an appraisal on it to begin with? To me its to rope people into buying it and another thing how can this company put rings in there (and yes i am aware some are valued at $10) but most you hear about are supposedly worth way more how can they do that and still make a profit there is no way. My guess is they go online order a bunch of rings from China and pass them off as worth lots. Like i see a problem with doing that if they want to buy cheap rings and put them in candles and make a profit well that is what most places do that is how business works buy low or wholesale and then sell for a higher amount but don't lie to people and tell them something is worth something when it isn't.

      I'm sure their ring values are highly inflated. It's so subjective as to what the value is. It seems like people are burning the candle down just for the ring so that $25 candle is expensive. At least Cracker Jack's were inexpensive to get the prize.

      Haters always make.me laugh....do you all not read their policies?

      It clearly states what each ring is made of, and YES there is costume jewelry that costs a lot of money.

      If your ring isn't stamped it's coated, if it's under $100 its definitely costume and not the real thing. Some have lab gems, some have natural. It clearly states the higher the value the better quality. It also states anywhere from $10-$5000. So one with a brain can assume there will be lots of $10 rings....again they make everyone aware of this.

      As for the comment about bad customer service after ordering more than once is nonsense. I know at least 5 people that order these on a regular basis and multiple times! They have never had a problem.

      I've had friends get from $10 upto $500 rings.....only the ones that got under $100 seemed to complain. The candle alone is worth it...makes my while house smell so yummy!!

      Rather than checking on their website for a value, go to a jeweller. They'll be honest. See what an experienced jeweller values it at vs what the candle site tells you. Even if the ring isn't good quality or valued over $100, a good candle will cost you, no matter what. The ring is a bonus really. And if the ring isn't what you expected etc, you can always give it as a gift. Especially to someone who loses things easily LoL.

      I ordered mine in November and have burned one down today, it was appraised at 150$ and has a 925 stamp on the inside. On their website they explain that reactions in your body chemistry can cause a green ring and not the silver. So I don't know much about that but if it's true maybe everyone complaining should go read it. It's a 25$ candle and if you end up with a sterling silver ring thats pretty good.

      all the rings that are shown on the website look like they came from Walmart. I mean sure they are pretty...but honestly if you think when you buy this that your going to get a 500$ or 5000$ ring...you need to shake your head.

      I am sure they have done their research and can get away with advertising it as they do...even when it comes to appraisals. If that appraisal isn't marked with a Jeweler's certification stamp and signature...I wouldn't believe it for a second.

      Good on this company though, for garnishing the extreme interest of the product...however I would be more willing to buy from Bella Candles or Diamond Candles(both company's also advertise the jewelry in their candles)because their candles are half the price, they have way more selection of scents and come with incentives like spend 45$ or more and receive free shipping! Even if they are american based companies you will get more for your money then Charmed Aroma.

      Totally Disappointed.Glad so many received such great rings! Mine was cheap and not worth the money. The candle is nice but I can get just as nice at Pier 1 for 1/2 the price. The cost of shipping was astronomical. The ring not worth the paper it was wrapped in. Appraised at $70.00?! A joke. It is not even sterling silver or even SS coated. 1/2 the stones are missing down one side of the band. Also 2 stones missing around the centre piece. I took it to a jeweller, he laughed and said he doesn't know where they are getting their appraisals done but its a scam. It was not even worth $10.00.

      the picture below clearly shows my nail polish through the band. The other side you can barely see the stones. You need a magnified glass. I will not be buying any more. BTW, I have not heard of anyone receiving a significant ring. The $5000.00, no such thing.

      I've got to say that my enjoyment comes from not knowing what kind of ring I was going to get and the smell of the candle. I love the excitement of digging the ring out. As for customer service, I've never had a problem. I've email a few times with questions and got answers within 24 hours. This isn't about the price of the ring it's about the anticipation of getting it. It's all for enjoyment purposes only! No one is trying to get rich off a ring in a candle. If you want an expensive ring, go to a jewelry store.

      To anyone reading this, think twice before ordering! I was a second time ordering customer. This time I bought double, 4 candles! Waited a month, I started to get concerned. So I e-mailed charmed aroma...no reply.....e-mailed again....no reply. Finally, I had enough and posted on instagram my story and how frustrated I am! I have no idea, if my candles are even coming! And it is a fact that there is a charmed aroma charge on my credit card bill. They finally said something to me and asked me to e-mail a specific e-mail. So I did! Explaining whats going on and my concerns! Again no reply! They MIGHT honor your first or maybe even second purchase! But due to there lack of customer service, I would never order again! If this was a legitimate business they would have a customer service telephone number to provide customers with immediate assistance with any concerns. Think twice, before ordering. If it happened to me it can happen to anyone! It's a shame too, because they did have good product!

      I was a little skeptical when i saw people online raving about how much these rings are worth according to the web site and all i think is if those rings were taken to a jeweler for appraisal i imagine it would be much less then what the web site says. Most jewelry that is plated with some kind of metal is over top of copper which will cause the finger to turn green and the metal to discolor and most times aren't suitable for everyday wear but more like on special occasions and have to be stored a certain way and aer very specific about what you can use on your hands while wearing it which maybe should be in with the candle or ring or something to avoid this kind of thing from happening. The ring similar to yours can be purchased on sites like ebay for $24.00 and probably less. Also almost everyone i know of that purchases these says how they got a ring and looked it up and its worth anywhere from $85.00 to $200 according to the site i have yet to hear of very many $10 rings but if that is the case how does this company stay in business if they are giving away rings that are worth much more then what they are charging for the candles. If i ever buy one of these candles it will be for the candle and not the jewelry inside.
