Shaftel Treasure Candles
Shaftel Diamonds has partnered with Foxfire Candle Works to pour our custom Treasure Candles, each with a surprise gemstone inside! 40% of the proceeds from every candle sold goes directly to our non-profit of choice, Sky High for Kids. The Sky High for Kids mission is to “bring communities together to provide comfort, fund research and save lives of those fighting pediatric cancer and other life-threatening conditions”.
How it Works
Each one of our Treasure Candles contains a mystery gemstone inside. There are two sizes to choose from, a smaller golden tin and a larger colored glass vessel. Burn the candle as normal, and once the gemstone reveals itself, carefully remove the gemstone using a metal spoon to scoop it out.
Once you’ve discovered your gem, TAKE A PICTURE WITH YOUR NEW GEM, TAG US ON INSTAGRAM WITH YOUR DISCOVERY, AND RECEIVE $35 CREDIT WHEN YOU MAKE A NEW PIECE OF JEWELRY WITH YOUR GEM.
One of the following gemstones was randomly included in each candle:
Garnet comes in almost every color, green, orange, purple, but red is the most common color. Egypt’s pharaohs wore elaborate red garnet necklaces that were later entombed with their mummified bodies for the afterlife. Garnet is January’s birthstone and the gem for the 2nd wedding anniversary.
This stone comes in blue to greenish-blue colors. Its name comes from the Latin word for seawater. Sailors used to wear amulets for protection at sea. Aquamarines come in a wide variety of sizes with some weighing up to 100 pounds! This is March’s birthstone and the gem of the 19th wedding anniversary.
It is famous for its blue color but sapphires come in all colors but red. These are called fancy sapphires. Princess Diana’s engagement ring featured a gorgeous blue sapphire that was passed down to Kate Middleton. Sapphire is September’s birthstone and the gem of the 5th and 45th anniversaries.
Amethyst is the purple variety of the mineral quartz and comes in different shades of purple from light purple to a royal purple. Up until the 1800’s, it was as valuable as ruby and emerald but large deposits were found in Brazil. It is said that amethyst sharpens the mind and vision and keeps away bad thoughts. It is February’s birthstone and the gem for 6th and 17th wedding anniversaries.
Blue is the most popular color for topaz but it comes in a wide range of colors. In India, many believe that wearing topaz above their heart promises long life, beauty, and intelligence. Sherry topaz is often called “Precious Topaz” and is a yellowish brown to orange color. Topaz is the birthstone for two months! Precious topaz represents November’s birthstone and is the gem of the 23rd anniversary. Blue topaz represents December’s birthstone and is the gem of the 4th anniversary.
Citrine is the transparent, pale yellow to brownish orange variety of quartz. Most do not know that it is rare in nature. Citrine energizes all aspects of life and attracts wealth, prosperity and success. Additionally, it releases negative traits.
