Diamond Candles reiview...and GIVE AWAY!!!

Hey guys! Do you like scented candles? Do you care about the environment? I do! If you have been following this blog for a while, you know that I really try my best to be eco friendly. Also,  I LOVE candles! I got a huge gift bag full from my boyfriend's mom this past Christmas and I have almost used all of them up. I love walking into a room filled with amazing smells like cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, etc., you know...food smells. I was sent a candle of my choice to review from Diamond Candles, an environmentally friendly, all natural soy( no gmo soybeans here!) candle company, and of course I went right for the food scents, and chose cinnamon roll.

I was so excited about this because these candles are quite different from regular scented candles you can buy at any department store. Each one has a ring inside! The prices of these rings vary from $10- $5,000 and you never know what you will get. I have not seen anyone review this candle that got the $5,000 ring, but it's still exciting to find jewelry inside a candle.
Also they said on their website that they put the most popular ring sizes in each candle, so you don't get to pick what size you get. Luckily I got one that fit my left hand, but not my right. Each ring is individually wrapped in a small plastic bag, the wrapped in gold foil to protect them from the hot wax.
 My candle arrived in just a few days and I was really surprised at how BIG these candles are!


 They also come in a very nice glass cylinder jar with a lid and would double as a great storage container when empty. These candles sell for $24.99 each and I gotta say they are worth it!
 They burn very slowly..it took at least 6 hours for me to get down about 2 inches to get the ring so you  are definitely getting your monies worth. The scent I chose was cinnamon roll, and when I smelled it before lighting, it smelled like fresh baked Pillsbury Cinnamon rolls! After being lit for sometime though, it just smelled more like regular cinnamon, which is still ok by me!







Although the ring is pretty, it's not really something I would wear because it just isn't my style, but I think it would make a lovely Valentine's Day gift for my mom or sister or something. I really enjoy this candle not only because it is a cool idea, but also because of the fact that it is eco friendly and that is something that I feel strongly about. I will definitely purchase another candle on my own when this one is gone. Here is the BEST part! Diamond Candles not only gave me the chance to receive one of these lovely candles, but they also are giving you a chance to win one for yourself!
