Diamond Candles: A Review (Plus, a Giveaway!)
I was recently contacted by the lovely people at Diamond Candles to review their unique product and host a giveaway for my readers.
Sounds like a win-win to me! I tend to lean more toward food-type scents when it comes to my home, so I chose the cinnamon roll candle. It was the perfect way to fool guests in my home into thinking I can bake! I love that the candle is made with soy, and was impressed by the throw of the scent. This candle filled my home with cinnamon and was strong without being overpowering.
Diamond Candles has a line of natural soy candles in a variety of scents that contain a ring worth $10, $100, $1,000 or $5,000. This makes for a fun "ring reveal" experience, as you wait for the candle to burn down and reveal the ring inside. Rings are very carefully wrapped in foil and plastic to ensure the wax from the candle doesn't touch the ring itself.
If you want to see more images of rings found in candles, check out Diamond Candles on Instagram.
As someone who is incredibly impatient, the waiting part felt a lot like torture--in the best way possible. I let the candle burn for a few hours before the foil pack surrounding the ring began to show itself, and then I quickly went in for the kill.
I blew out the candle and used my trusty tweezers to extract the ring, which was carefully wrapped in foil. Inside was a lovely ring with a purple stone. The band is not marked in any way, so it's probably in the $10 range.
I loved the experience and excitement of knowing there was a ring in my candle and once it was all said and done, I still have an amazing candle.
