Diamond Candle Product Review

January 11, 2012

in Candles, Diamond Candles, giveaway, product review

I received a Diamond Candle to review on our site. When it arrived the first thing I noticed just how nicely it was wrapped. It was in a nice cardboard box, with a bubble wrap that’s sticky on the candle side. Also there were those bags of air in it too, I felt that it was packed with care and that’s a good thing since it’s glass.

I got the scent Sweety Pea which is nice because it is a little of a lavendar scent. It smells like a spring flower and it’s purple (my favorite color).

I couldn’t wait to burn it, so I took a few photos of it and then took it to the kitchen to get it started.

 

Look, that is where the ring is! Oh in case you aren’t familiar with Diamond Candles – they get their name because they have a ring in them. It could be worth $10, $100, $1,000 or even $5,000. My mom’s best friend said it was like legal gambling. I think it reminds me of the anticipation of opening a cereal box with a prize as a kid, or a cracker jack box. But with an actual ring that minimally is going to be a piece of costume jewelry that won’t turn your finger green, so that’s good!

 

So after about an hour I went to check on it. It was burning evenly. The house was starting to have a light flowery scent. It’s not very overpowering. I hear that soy candles in general aren’t as strong. Maybe that’s just the gossip, but I did smell it, just not all over the house. More like in the kitchen area. I guess that it would make a great candle for the bathroom or something, since the room is smaller. Then again my hubby complains if there’s candles burning that he doesn’t like the smell of when he comes home from work and I didn’t hear any complaints about this one. I think Gold Canyons are the strongest scents with Yankee following behind them, this is less than those but more than a glade or something you’d get like that.

Now the moment of truth. I made a video of the ring’s unveiling. Please pay no mind to the editing, Cheech was trying to blow it out and I had to edit the video so I wasn’t telling her to “Stop it!” and the boy was so excited because he’s a rock collector and the thought of a diamond made him super ready to see what was in the gold pouch.

Here is an up close and personal look at the ring that I received from the candle. It’s gold with diamonds. Ok it’s likely gold plated with CZ’s, but until I go to a jewelry store for an appraisal I think I’ll keep it out of Cheech’s jewelry box. I couldn’t make out any words in it, I’ve heard to look for China, Taiwan, 14K, 24K, and stuff like that, but I couldn’t read anything. It may say Taiwan, but using the boy’s magnifying glass I didn’t have any better luck in reading it.

I seriously don’t know how to pose with a ring. I guess it’s been too long since I got my engagement ring and I was all, look at this ring. So I guess here’s my attempt at showing it off while looking like I’m trying to stop myself from slapping someone? Whatever, you get the idea.

Am addicted to Diamond Candles, I LOVE the candles but the ring is a bonus. I have several rings I have gotten worth $100.00 or more but also was LUCKY and ended up with a 14k White gold diamond band worth $1,500.00

A bonus, yeah – but for many it’s the whole “what will you get inside” that makes them buy a candle they’ve never even smelled. I love my vanilla one the most though. :) YAY on getting a nice ring!

I like pinterest and don’t yet have the new timeline, but at the same time I hear that FB is rolling it out to everyone whether we like it or not in the next month or so. I don’t like it, but I guess we shall see if we all get used to it or what. Good luck!
