I love scented candles. There is something about burning a wonderful smelling candle that makes your home feel so cozy and relaxing. We discovered a great new candle company called Diamond Candles. They have all natural soy candles, and the reason they are called Diamond Candles is that each candle has a ring hidden in the wax that is worth $10, $100, $1,000, or $5,000.
The company was founded in January of 2011. The founder came up with the idea of putting rings in candles when he was looking for a gift bag at the store for the ring, but he saw some candles and decided to buy her one to go along with the ring. The company website says “On his way out of the store, he looked down at the ring in one hand and the candle in the other, and the idea of Diamond Candles was born.”
I got the chance to try the Lavender Lemon scent and I love it. It’s a clean relaxing scent. It’s mostly lemony with a hint of the lavender. It’s pleasant, but it isn’t overpowering. I do wish the scent was a bit stronger though since you can’t smell it except for the room that it is in. I’d love for the scent to fill the whole house. It is in a very pretty glass container with a lid. I can see the foil pouch of the ring in the side, but haven’t gotten down to it yet. (I’m resisting the urge to dig it out, lol)
These candles would make a totally fun gift for someone since not only are they getting an awesome candle, but also a pretty ring. If you want to see some images of the rings, you can go to the Diamond Candle Facebook page and see photos that customers have posted of the rings that they have gotten. I’ll update this post with a photo of the ring once I get it out.
You can see all of the scents that they have to offer for yourself on their website. They have lots of different scents and even some Christmas ones.
