Candles are a great way decorate and fill a room with great aroma, but for one company, they make sure you get a little extra bling for your buck.
The story of Diamond Candles started when the owner bought a ring as an anniversary gift for his wife. After picking out a piece of jewelry, he then went to the store to find a gift bag to put his wife’s ring in. While he was unsuccessful in his search, he spotted candles. Knowing his wife loved candles he decided to buy one to go with the ring. As he left the store, he looked at both the ring and the candle. Thus the story of Diamond Candles was born.
Though the concept may be abstract, the goal of the company is to provide the consumer with a unique product. Each ring hidden within the candles is worth $10, $100, $500, or $5,000, but in order to know the exact value one must go get it appraised. Each candle costs around $24.95 plus shipping and handling. The rings are picked randomly and come in the most popular sizes. The candles themselves, which are earth friendly and made of soy, come in six different aroma genres. Within each genre there are a variety of scents to choose.
So if the ring comes inside a candle, wouldn’t it be a waxy mess? I thought the same thing, but it turns out the candles are wrapped in foil and in a small plastic wrapper. The ring can be hidden anywhere inside the candle, and the only way to find it is to let it burn. Some have been able to see it in the wax without having to burn it, and others had to burn the whole candle before finding their prize.
Once the ring surfaces simply remove the foil package with tweezers, unwrap it, and enjoy your new ring. If you are feeling a bit skeptical there are many “ring reveal” videos on YouTube that may change your mind. If paying $24.95 plus shipping and handling to get a valuable ring sounds like a good idea, head on over to www.diamondcandles.com and you could get the surprise of a lifetime. With over 500,000 rings found, these candles continue to grow in popularity.
