Diamond Candles Review and Giveaway!

I am so excited to have been given the chance to review Diamond Candles!

I have seen and heard a lot about Diamond Candles and have been itching to give one a try. When Diamond Candles contacted me to do a review I got to choose from the many scents available on their website. Some of my favorite options were: Cinnamon Tea, Chocolate Truffle, Peachy Mango and Vanilla didn't expect non-food scents to be my favorite, right?! This is primarily a food blog afterall.

Anyways, moving on...

I chose Vanilla Lime since we're at the end of summer and lime screams summer to me. When it arrived I was happy to see how much care was put into packaging the candle to get it to me all in one piece.

Then it was time to light this baby up, enjoy the aroma wafting throughout my house and wait for my ring to appear. My candle took about 10 hours of total burn time for my ring to appear.

The rings come wrapped in a small foil pouch so that they don't get all waxy. Once the ring was visible I followed these instructions and used tweezers to remove my ring and unwrapped it from the foil pouch. Here's what I found!

Diamond Candles says that each ring is worth between $10 and $5,000. They suggest if you have a question of the value of your ring to take it to a jeweler to be appraised. I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure mine is along the $10 to $100 range. Either way, it's a beauty.

Unfortunately for me I have big fingers so it will only fit my pinky finger. I think I'll give it to my daughter in a few years. Hopefully she won't inherit my big fingers. Most rings are sizes 6-8 and I'm more of a size 10. To me this is the one down side of the whole thing. But if you love the ring, you can always take it to a jeweler and have it re-sized.

I mentioned the scent wafting throughout my house...I wasn't joking. The scent is not overpowering but just powerful enough to make my whole house smell yummy. Also, the candles are soy-based so they are environmentally friendly and all natural.

Bottomline: Smells amazing. Loves the environment. Gorgeous jewelry although too small for my giant fingers. Chance at a ring worth lots of moolah. Great price. ($24.95 for a 21 oz. candle and ring)

Please check out Diamond Candles online, on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter.
