I love me some candles. Whether curled up on the couch with a good book or enjoying a bubble bath with a glass of wine, the experience is not complete without my candles. I recently had the experience of sampling a candle from Diamond Candles and these are definitely not your ordinary candles. Each one comes with a little surprise, a ring worth $10, $100, $1,000 or $5,000. Yes, you may find a real diamond ring in there! Even if it’s not a real diamond the rings are still totally cute .
The candle itself is 100% soy, eco-friendly and all natural. It’s pretty large at 21 ozs and truly does smell divine. I chose Chocolate Truffle and every time that I light it my son thinks that I’m making hot chocolate. The scent fills my entire apartment and lingers for a few hours when I blow it out.
Now getting to the ring. I had to burn my candle for almost 6 hours to reach the ring. I pulled the ring out with a tweezer and put it in the top to cool off. It was wrapped in gold foil and then in plastic to keep it safe and clean from the wax.
There is a guide on the FAQ Page on the Diamond Candles Website to help you to figure out how much your ring is worth. Mine was unmarked and not a real diamond one, it may be worth anywhere between $10 and $100. In any case it is a very pretty ring and fits me perfectly.
Diamond Candles would make the perfect gift for a girlie that loves candles and jewelry. I really like the concept and plan to get a few as Christmas and birthday gifts. At $24.95 each they are definitely worth the price since you are getting a large, high quality candle and a piece of jewelry.
