Ever since I first discovered the wonderful world of ring candles, I could not stop obsessing over Diamond Candles. These candles are one of the most unique gifts you can give to either your mother, sister, friends, or even keep for yourself.
Diamond Candles are more than just ordinary candles – each candle has a different ring worth $10 hiding inside it, and the chance to win a ring valued at $100, $1,000, or even $5,000!
Although many have heard and seen about these candles, it seems that not many have yet to read a thorough review of them. So I’ve taken all the guesswork out of the equation and documented the experience with one of my new candles!
All Diamond Candles are made of natural soy wax and cotton wicks that are lead-free, which is a huge determining factor for me when purchasing a candle. Candles containing lead are extremely dangerous to your health, as lead fumes and even deposits can actually disperse throughout the room, settling on the floor, furniture and walls. When one comes into contact with lead, lead poisoning can mess with your behavior or even damage your internal organs. It is a real thing that happens.
Their candle formulations are also zinc, paraben and phthalate-free, which makes these candles a step above other brands. Yay for conscious consuming and healthy choices!
I love the bright selection of scents that the Diamond Candles catalog has to offer. There are fruity scents like Guava Berry and Blueberry Tart, and then there are dessert flavors – ahem, scents – like Coconut Macaroon and the famed Cupcake, which is perfect for birthday gifts. Florals and seasonal aromas are also part of their year-round selection, which gives ample options for even the pickiest of people.
I just recently got Lemon Mint, Guava Berry and Apricot Fig, all of which smell divine (I have to say, Guava Berry is my new favorite and I’m saving it for later!). None of them smell the least bit artificial and the scents carry a good distance.
Price & Value
Diamond Candles are more affordable than most competing ring candles at $24.99 each. While this may seem pricey to the non-candle-indulging person, all Diamond Candles are a whopping 21 oz. in size. Their website claims the approximate burn time to reveal the ring is 10-15 hours, which is pretty accurate to my experience. It burned only about one inch of wax down before I saw the ring too, which means I can probably guesstimate the total burn time would be around 100 hours.
The Ring Reveal
I’m sure you’ve been reading to see what I got in my ring candle! This has been the one time I wished a candle actually burned faster and not slower. Waiting for that little wrapped-up ring to show up was agonizing! As soon as I saw it peak out, I blew out the candle, let it cool down and fished it out with some disposable chopsticks (because really, who wants to ruin their one good pair of tweezers?).
The ring was wrapped in foil and a plastic baggie as well. Inside, there was my cute little ring and – gasp – a little voucher?! Did I win?!
Unfortunately, I didn’t, but the ring that was included is a neat little trinket of this unique experience (seriously, I never would have thought a mere candle would make my heart flutter the way this one did). I just wish it fit, but then again, my hands are a bit smaller than your average gal.
I’ve had some people ask me in the past about the sizing of the rings included in the candle, and the only drawback of Diamond Candles is that you can’t choose your ring size, making it a major hit or miss. However, I can easily justify this as DC’s price point is significantly more affordable than other popular ring candle brands.
If ring size is a major determining factor, they also have their Luxe Ring Candle line, which features a different candle design and the option to pick your ring size. Like the name states, these candles have a much more luxe design compared to the original $24.99 candles. The Luxe Ring Candles are available for $39.99.
To be honest, if you’re trying to give this as a gift for anyone, it would be really suspicious to randomly ask the recipient what their ring size is out of the blue. They may think you’re attempting to propose to them, haha!
Many people will assume that just like the lotto, the chances of winning are impossible. Diamond Candle’s website states that 1 in 100 will win a $100 ring, 1 in 1,000 will win a $1,000 ring, and 1 in 5,000 will win a $5,000 ring. Yes, chances seem low, but it isn’t impossible to win a high-value ring. Just look at msjesterbuny from YouTube who won a $1,200 ring that was appraised by a jeweler!
A Perfect Gift for Mother’s Day
With Mother’s Day coming right around the corner, Diamond Candles will make a perfect gift for your mom, as these candles are a major hit with the ladies. And let’s face it: is there a woman you know that doesn’t like candles? It’s even better with a diamond surprise inside!
