With weddings around the corner, sparklers are increasingly becoming a hot item on the wedding market.
The price of a sparkler is determined by the size of the wedding ring and the quality of the rings.
But the sparklers can be bought online for less than a dollar.
Wedding sparkler prices are now higher than ever before.
The average price of the cheapest sparkler rose by about $10 to $12 on Monday.
The median price rose by $7.30, the highest price since January 2018.
There were fewer sales at the low end of the market, with the median price at $1.40, down from $2.20 on Tuesday.
Prices have increased at the high end, with prices at $5.40 for the best quality sparklers and $6.50 for the cheapest, but this is still below the $7 average.
The rise in prices has prompted some to question whether sparklers should be a priority in weddings, as they could be costly to buy.
“I think the sparkler market has changed, particularly at the lower end,” said Ms Chisholm.
“You’ll see a lot more people getting married in warmer weather.”
In some states, such as Queensland, the sparkle industry has faced boycotts.
In NSW, where sparklers make up almost a quarter of the overall wedding market, there was a boycott of the industry in March.
“We’ve had a lot of customers that have cancelled wedding engagements, or even cancelled weddings entirely,” Ms Chistolm said.
“It’s not a new phenomenon.
There’s been a couple of incidents that we’ve seen recently.”
I think it’s just a matter of time before the sparkles disappear.

They’re not a sparkly wedding ring,” said Mr Smith.
“If you look at a sparkle ring and you put a ring on top, it’s not going to sparkle like a spark,” he said.
