We are so glad you are here! If you don't know much about us yet we have real rings worth $10, $100, $1,000, or $5,000 in all our full-sized ring candles.

The combination of highly fragrant premium quality soy candles, an exciting and fun 'ring reveal' experience (what ring will you find?), and a ring to wear for months and years to come means making something as boring as burning candles in your home something to look forward to.

Once you burn your candle down and find your ring, head over to facebook and upload a photo or video of you and your ring for everyone else to see! You can watch some 'ring reveal' videos, or go ahead and take the plunge and get your first soy candle!

The Diamond Candles Story

Let's start at the beginning of this love story that turned into a business. David met Brenda for the first time in November of 1978 when they were both still in high school. He knew the first time that he laid eyes on her that she was going to be his wife one day. They both realized that they were destined to be together.

Several years later at a picnic in his parents' back yard, David got down on one knee and proposed to Brenda just two years after their first date. She said yes! Young, broke, and in love, there was nothing wrong with the world as long as they were together.

Throughout the next year, David worked long hours in construction and had been saving up every penny to be able to buy something nice for his wife for their anniversary. With their anniversary approaching, he went to the local jewelry store to see what type of gift he could afford with his hard earned savings. He soon discovered a diamond ring that he knew Brenda would absolutely love.

With the ring purchased, David rushed to the grocery store to buy a gift bag to put the ring in. He couldn't find any gift bags, but just before leaving he saw some candles. David knew that Brenda loved candles, and he decided to pick one up to go along with the anniversary ring. On his way out of the store, he looked down at the ring in one hand and the candle in the other, and the idea of Diamond Candles was born.

Why Rings?

The question that buzzes through everyone's mind when they find out about Diamond Candles is, "why rings?" What makes rings so special that we decided to put them inside a candle of all things?

We strive to provide you with a unique product that can't be found anywhere else. By adding a ring into the candles, we make them different, and we make each and every candle burning experience a surprise full of excitement and a pure thrill!

By adding a woman's best friend to candles they become great gifts, as even after the candle burns out the dazzling ring inside will last. The anticipation of each candle also makes every Diamond Candle fun as you eagerly wait to find out what ring you receive in each product.

Simply put: We wished to take something ordinary and make it extraordinary for you. Yes, you!

Earth Friendly

You may find yourself wondering what exactly makes Diamond Candles more "Earth Friendly" than other candles. In fact you may be wondering what can make a candle bad for planet Earth at all.

The key difference, as with many "Earth Friendly" products, lies in the ingredients we use. While most companies are being caught with their hand in the cookie jar when it comes to using only the lowest quality ingredients at the sake of their community and the people living in it, we work with only the best ingredients and materials to bring you a true no compromise product.

We work to bring you the highest quality, longest lasting, strongest smelling candles made with the most environmentally responsible and quality ingredients and materials.

Most candles are made from what is called paraffin wax. What most people don't know is that paraffin wax is actually a byproduct of crude oil. So every paraffin wax candle you buy supports oil companies.

Our wicks are also made from cotton, even some so called 'natural' candle companies use paraffin wax to coat the wicks in their candles! There is no lead, tin, or zinc in our wicks either.

Diamond Candles are made using soy wax, which is different from the paraffin wax used by most candle makers. Soy wax is natural and made from soy bean plants. Our wicks are coated in soy wax instead of paraffin, because we don't want to make any compromises.

We love knowing that our candles come straight from the Earth. When they are burned the ingredients evaporate into the air, and eventually those molecules make their way back into the ground again through rain water. It is a complete cycle!

Our soy wax is also made from only US soy beans. We do our best to support American farmers and the American economy by using local products.

With a strong soy bean crop here in central North Carolina, we are located and manufacture all of our candles here in Durham, NC. We are extremely aware of how our local agriculture and farming community can be affected by changes in the worldwide economy at a moments notice.

By supporting us you are supporting the local and domestic farmers that we source our soy wax from.

Diamond Candles wants to provide a great product to our customers while still being as kind as we can to the planet. So we strive every day to make our candles as healthy for the planet and for you as possible.

We believe that with a focus on a quality product that functions better than any other alternatives out there, has unique and fun fragrances, has a strong scent 'throw' (scent that fills a room), is long lasting, and is created with only the best materials that are sourced responsibly we can make the most enjoyable candle for your home. You can feel proud to support and consume these candles for your daily pleasure!
