I don’t know how I feel about this one. Companies are allowed to create and do what they want, but enticing people to buy their candles so that when they burn off, they will be left with a guaranteed piece of Jewelry?

FragrantJewels range of candles always come with a $10-$10,000 ring. Their candles are priced at $24.95 each, so scoring even the most basic ring will be a prize worth getting.

It seems there are no other products that they sell, and all the candles are made and manufactured in USA.

See what you think: FragrantJewels.
