This week I'm trying a different type of post! Since I love subscription boxes, that means that I love surprises. So, of course I would love to try out surprise candles! I wanted to see which type of ring candle was better, Diamond Candle or Prize Candle.
I got both candles in 2 different scents, Prize Candle was Blue Cypress and Diamond Candle was Be Mine (smells like wild berries, amber and roses). Each of the candles cost $25 a piece. Although, Prize Candle offers $10 your first purchase and Diamond Candle offers free shipping on orders $45 or more.
Inside both companies candles, there is a ring worth $10-$5,000.
First, the shipping. I ordered both candles the same night, within 15 minutes of each other. Prize Candle came 2 days before Diamond Candle did. My Prize Candle came pretty dirty though, I had to clean off the glass container because in had candle wax all over the sides. My Diamond Candle came in perfect condition though.
Both candles had a sticker on the side, marking where the ring is in the candle.
As for the candle itself, Diamond Candle is about twice the size of Prize Candle so it lasts twice as long. Although, I thought that the scent of Prize Candle was stronger than Diamond Candle.
Now for the good part! Revealing the rings!
This is the ring that I got with my Prize Candle. It was wrapped in a plastic baggie inside of the candle.
It's only worth $10 and it's a large, emerald green heart stone.
I'm not a huge fan of this ring... It reminds me of something that little girls would play with and it's just not my style. It's too bulky and looks tacky on me, I can guarantee that I would never wear it. I love the emerald green color but I hate the bulkiness and heart shape. This ring probably would of looked 100% more appealing to me if it was in any different shape. If you look closely, you can even still see wax on the ring. I tried scrubbing it off but it's pretty stuck on there.
Then this is the ring that I got with my Diamond Candle, it was wrapped in red foil and a small plastic bag.
From what I can tell, it's probably only valued at $10. You can't tell from the picture, but it's actually a light pink color with white stones on the sides. I like it so much better than the ring from Prize Candle.
This ring was much more practical and I would wear it with my normal outfits. The packaging around it was a lot better too, it doesn't have dried on wax all over it.
My Final Thoughts: At this point, I would buy Diamond Candle over Prize Candle. Diamond Candle is a better value for your money because both candles are the same price and Diamond Candle is twice as big, meaning more burning time. Plus, I liked their ring a lot better too!
