Diamond Candles

What the heck is a Diamond Candle?  That's exactly what I said when I first heard about it.  It's not a subscription company it's just a fun little product with a little gimmick.  Diamond Candles are large 21 oz soy candles with a ring in it.  Yep I said ring.  The company puts a ring inside each candle that has a value of $10 to $5000.  The rings range is size from 6-8 but you can't choose which size you will receive.  The price is $24.95 plus $5.00 shipping.  So it's a little pricey but you get a piece of costume jewelry out of it or if you're super lucky then a ring worth more than the price of the candle.  I think it makes a fun gift also.

This is how the candle comes packaged.  This scent is apple slice and smells just like apples.  



This is the ring inside the candle.  From what other people have said it's wrapped up inside to protect it.  I'm tempted to dig it out but I'm patiently waiting and burning the candle.  I'm glad it's not too far down though, so I don't have to wait long.  

The candle itself smells good.  I would recommend cutting the wick before lighting it though.  It was pretty long and created a lot of black smoke upon first lighting.  After it had burned down it seemed to burn pretty clean.  I was going to wait and post this when I had the ring but I decided I would let all of you sit and wonder just like I am.  So stayed tuned for an update on my Diamond Candle ring.  My guess is I should have that baby out by the end of the weekend.   


*****UPDATE****** My candle finally melted enough for me to get the ring out.  **************   

So this is what the ring comes wrapped in. Looks kind of icky but I assure you it's just foil and wax.  It's a piece of foil and the ring is inside plastic.  I was so excited to see my ring I didn't wait for the wax to cool before opening it up.  I had to clean a little bit of wax off the ring but it wasn't a big deal. 


This is my actual ring.  It fits on my middle finger which is an 8.  I love the design of it and the color of the stones.  There are no markings inside so I have no idea what it's made out of or what the stones are.  The website says you can take it to a jeweler but I'll pass on that and just enjoy the ring for now.

  3. What an idea to present a ring in the middle of the candle? That is really so romantic that can help the couples to propose as Valentine's Day is coming soon.

    1. It's several hours of burn time to get to the actual ring. I would think that would be too long to wait.
