They have a gold metallic swirl pattern design and measures approximately 3” in diameter. The red and green gold metallic swirl candles are individually packaged in a polybag with a gold tie. The Christmas ball candles are fashioned with a flat bottom that allows them to remain in an upright position on a shelf, table or mantle.
