Diamond candles

Anyone not so sure about them? I want one and I know the chances are slim but I've been on there Facebook page went through almost 500 pictures and all but maybe 1 were 10.00 rings. The candle itself is worth the 25.00 but has anyone out there actually gotten a really expensive ring?

I'm on the fence about them also. My fingers are larger and I'm thinking that they wouldn't fit.

Of course the expensive rings are goinng to be few and far between. Assuming 500 pictures equals 500 x $25 - you have a revenue of $12,500. If each candle has at least a $10 ring - it makes their revenue 500 x $15 = $7,500. And that is without any other cost involved. The most expensive ring you can get from them is $5K? $10k? You can quickly see why, out of 500 rings, all but 1 were worth $10.

I understand all that. They will be rare but these candles on Facebook aren't the only candles they have sold.

I have smaller fingers and some of those rings are just ugly!

Of course. That would be a representation and probably a more acurate one. 1 good ring out of 500 - less than 1% chance. I suspect if you look at their website the weightings will be far higher - just looking at their home page - out of 14, at least 3 look like expensive ones; around 20%. It is creative marketing. Does it give you a percentage of what your actual chances are of having a ring worth more than the candle? You probably have a similar chance of winning an equal amount on the lottery. I have only heard of them on CM and they seem to be a waste of money IMO - I'd rather forgo the ring and get a yankie candle.

I got 2 and both were the cheap rings plus the candles didn' t have a very good scent throw My candle was messed up looking but still usable I expected more for the price I paid. I don't recommend them.

I want to light my Yankee jar candle I have right now but my nose is so stuffed up I won't smell it anyway. :(

I haven't bought one yet but I plan to when they bring back the Carnival Candy scent. :) I don't really expect to find a $5,000 ring, but it'd be nice.

I was unimpressed. The apple Alice, sweetie pea and cinnamon tea were all lacking scent. The wax melts too fast and the scent throw is awful.
