Candle in the Wind

Candles are an ever popular gift. While Christmas is over, we have an entire year of birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Mothers’ Day plus all of those random hostess, thank you, and shower gifts.
I received a Diamond Candle as a Christmas gift from my sister. I’m not one to spend money on candles or jewelry. Diamond Candles are a fun concept. You get a soy-based, scented candle. Mine is apple cinnamon.

When you burn it down about one quarter, you get a foil pouch with a random ring valued from $10-$5,000. Here is mine. They’re various sizes. Mine fits my index finger perfectly, which is what I hoped. I have a wedding ring and a couple of other rings that fit my ring finger.

Mom received one too.

If you’re into more traditional candles with unique natural scents, Ellie Brook Designs makes elegant soy-based candles. We gave out several as Christmas gifts.

  1. I never heard of Diamond Candles. Like you, I’m not usually one to spend money on candles – they’re just so pricey! But hidden rings inside sounds like a fun concept!
