Diamond Candles are large scented candles, advertised as "environmentally friendly," made of a natural soy wax. They come in very generously-sized glass containers, and with every candle, there is a ring inside - kind of like a Cracker Jack prize for grown-ups.
The rings are worth $10, $100, $1000 or $5000. I decided to buy some, and test one out. If the product was not up to par, I would just keep the rest, but if it was a fun experience, I would give away the rest as Christmas presents.
Through the glass, one can see a gold sticker where the ring is located embedded in the wax. I was lucky in that the candle I ordered for myself, "Cinnamon Roll" featured this sticker pretty near to the top, so I would not have to burn off a lot of the candle before retrieving the ring.
It's rumored that if there is no writing inside the ring, such as 14k, etc, then it's a ten dollar ring, which I figured most would be.
Well, I didn't hit the jackpot, but got a really cute ring out of this. The setting looks quite solid, and it's a simulated ruby heart with two baguette-looking pave "diamond" sides. Score!
Apparently, there is a Facebook group you can join to swap rings, as they come in the most common sizes 6,7, 8 so if yours does not fit, or if you don't like the design, you can always swap it out.
Overall, a really fun experience.
BTW, I have not been compensated in any way by this company.

|One YouTuber suggested melting the wax on the stove, but I didn't quite feel comfortable with that.|
|My candle burned for a mere hour before I could see the gold foil-wrapped ring. The scent was a bit too "sweet," and strong, but overall I enjoyed it.|

|There it is! In the upper left. The excitement mounts!|

|After you remove the foil, the ring is sealed in a separate plastic bag.|
|Here she is, next to my wedding band. The ring felt solid and well made. The facets of the simulated stone were very well defined and the "diamonds" sparkled.|
