It's a Diamond (Candle) Kind of Day




I have to say I was really excited when I received an offer to review one of the new Diamond Candles AND to do a giveaway.  It has been a few years since I ordered one (it was a Christmas present for my daughter) and I had seen a few posts on Facebook talking about NEW scents.  I knew we had really enjoyed the one she had received and thought it would be great to try them again.

 My first problem was deciding which candle I wanted to try.  They have some great "summer" scents but we just fell in love with the sound of the Hawaiian Coconut.





I mean it just called out to summer and pina coladas.  And it did not disappoint!  Just popping off the glass top you were surrounded by that wonderful coconut smell but not so overpowering that you were bowled over.









One of the things I remembered from the 1st time we got one of these was that they took a long time to burn but the scent continued on.  So many candles smell good when they are first lit, but soon the scent is gone.  Not so with Diamond Candles - the scent lasts a VERY LONG time.  But I guess because they are a slow burning candle, they wanted to find a way to make that wonderful scent continue so you want to light the candle every day.

So my second problem was waiting for that ring packet to make its appearance.





As you can see in the first picture, in the upper right, there is a little gold packet peeking out ... and this is after a good hour to a hour and a half of burning (and yes it was still smelling like a pina colada).

FINALLY ............

See my gold packet at the top right ... all I could think of was - its almost time, its almost time.  It really was a slow burner and this was just a tease because my packet was much lower in the candle than it appeared ..... but we were patient (ok not really) until we got our prize!




It did seem like it was going to take forever before I got the "second" surprise, but then there it was.  Almost like those old Cracker Jack boxes ... when will you get your prize??





As you can see it is much bigger than it appeared as it was burning down.  But with a little perseverance and "help" my ring was finally free.  And although it wasn't the $5,000.00 or $1,000.00 ring, I think it does look pretty nice. 






The purple stone is a very rich purple, that doesn't get its true justice in this picture.  So whether its worth $10.00 or $100.00 it still is something that is nice to wear when you are looking for something to add color to your day.









So tell me, do you know what that flower is that my candle was "hiding next to" when I came home?  Hint it's "tropical" too and shown in one picture above.  Leave me a comment if you know what it is or think you do .



Wouldn't you love to have one of these for yourself?

I have no idea what kind of flower your candle is hiding behind! I love candles but can not light them in my apartment due to a cat who loves swatting things off tables onto the floor! Good luck to all who enter.

I believe that flower is a gardenia. I would have to either try the cinnamon roll or the cupcake one I think! I'd love the cinnamon tea but it's sold out!

How can you find out how much a ring is worth besides taking it to a jewelers to have it appraised.???

Olivia L said...

Cupcake scent or coffee scent for me. I have to try this one. It is frustrating getting candles and getting the right one. I have a candle collection, all due to impulsive buying. You love the smell but it fades as the candle burns down. This should be worth a try.
