I have been really intrigued with the candles on diamondcandles.com for a few months now but I had to restrain myself and wait until I finished my other candles first. I’m trying to learn to finish all of my products before I try new things, which has actually been a bit of a challenge for me because I am not horribly patient.
The idea behind Diamond Candles is really interesting. They are soy candles, in lovely scents, that have rings inside (like a Cracker Jack box). Each ring is valued between $10-$5,000. Wow. Can you imagine spend only $24.95 for a candle and get a $5,000 ring from inside it?
I purchased the Fall Sample Pack, which comes with five candles: Cinnamon Roll, Vanilla Cream, Harvest Blend, Pecan Pie, and Pumpkin Chai.
Overall I liked how the candles burned evenly (I almost never see that in all of the candles I have purchased before, not even Yankee Candle) and the fact that they last 120-160 hours but I was disappointed with the amount of black smoke that formed after I blew the candles out. EDIT: I’ve spoken to some people on the Diamond Candle Facebook page and it was suggested to me that I cut off some of the black build up on the wick before lighting it and there will be less smoke.
As for the rings that were hidden in the candles, I didn’t get any of the really expensive ones (I assume they are more rare) and they were all fairly large for my fingers. On Diamond Candles FAQ it states that the rings range from sizes 6-8. This isn’t a con though because the whole point is you don’t know what you are going to get. It was fun getting the rings out of the candles, even if I didn’t end up liking the ones I got and didn’t get any my size.
I’m not sure whether or not I will repurchase or try out a different soy candle company because the smoke is just hard to ignore.
Let me know what you think of my Diamond Candle review and answer the below question in the comments.
Do you have any soy candle company recommendations?
