Every year around this time I start seeing people go absolutely bat sh__ crazy for candles. All Pumpkin Everything candles, Holiday candles, Apple Cider Caramel Whipped Cream with a Cherry on Top candles, you name it, someone on my Facebook feed/Twitter TL has posted about it. I was contacted to review one of the candles from Diamond Candles and my first thought was "Yay! Now I can join in on the candle craziness!", but absolutely no Pumpkin Spice whatever candles please... They all seem to contain some kind of cinnamony scent, which I just can't handle. Sorry cinnamon lovers (including my husband) please keep your cinnamonness away from my nose.
So of course, I chose the Cupcake candle... I love cupcakes (who doesn't??) and it looks so sweet and cute I couldn't resist!
Diamond Candles makes all natural soy candles which contain a ring worth either $10, $100, $1000 or $5000.
From the Diamond Candles website:
Cupcake Candle $24.95
What is the perfect dessert that basically has no calories because compared to a whole cake is almost nothing? What's really more like a cake vitamin? Cupcakes are one of our favorites treats for all occasions. Let's enjoy the smell even when we aren't taking our vitamins.
Haven't you heard? Every Diamond Candle hides a special ring, valued between $10 and $5,000!
How much is it worth?
If you discover a 14k symbol inside the band, take it to a jeweler for a verbal appraisal.
While random, each ring comes in the most popular sizes.
How long do I have to wait?
Patience is a virtue, but we don't blame you for wondering. It takes about 10-15 hours to uncover most rings. The impatient ones among us use a spoon to speed things along.
Don't they get hot in there?
Each ring is carefully placed in a tiny plastic bag, then wrapped in gold foil for safekeeping.
Ok, first of all.. the scent. It smells GORGEOUS! My son said it smells like marshmallows and it definitely has a vanilla sweetness about it. I thought it smelled like cake baking in the oven and my husband asked if there was something cooking (so sorry to disappoint, but no). The candle is also huge, I had it burning all day for 2 days and it hardly went down at all. Shipping time was pretty quick and the candle was packaged really well, no fears of it breaking in transit.
I couldn't wait for the candle to burn down, so I dug the ring out while the candle wax was hot. It got a little waxy, but I cleaned it off and here it is!
Unfortunately it's not an expensive ring, but for $24.95 and with such a big candle, the ring is an extra bonus anyway! It's a pretty piece of costume jewelry that I am happy with. I will definitely be ordering one of their other delicious sounding scents soon, maybe the Hawaiian Coconut candle, or the Caramel Apple Cider candle.... and I can't wait to see what other kind of rings I get!
