Are diamonds really a girl’s best friend? Well they don’t give warm cuddles and I’d bet the sex isn’t great either. But if there was a diamond the size of your palm which promised to give you life changing orgasms, I’d wager you’d at least want to know its name.

When Bijoux Indiscrets (read my other Bijoux Indiscrets reviews here) approached me to review their brand new vibrator, I was intrigued. This was going to be absolutely amazing, or quite the disappointment. I agreed, and soon received the Bijoux Indiscrets Twenty One Diamond vibrator free of charge, in exchange for a fair and honest review.

So what’s it all about (Alfie)? The Bijoux Indiscrets Twenty One Diamond vibrator is, perhaps unsurprisingly, shaped like the stereotypical diamond. I’m rather sad to confirm that it’s not actually a diamond, nor is it made from any precious gem at all. In fact the vibrating sex toy’s outer casing is made from pretty run of the mill ABS plastic which has a shiny outer. The shiny outer is stated to be gold plated but I have no means of testing this. The vibrator feels cool in my palm but quickly warms to body temperature. As this is a plastic coated toy you can use your choice of lube with it, whether water based, oil, silicone or hybrid.

The vibrator is presented rather lovingly in a lift-lid box, just as a precious gem would be. In the packaging you receive:

  • Twenty One Diamond vibrator
  • Satin storage pouch
  • Instructions & quick start guide
  • USB charging lead

To charge up the Twenty One Diamond vibrator you need to unscrew the top half. This reveals a port where you plug in the jackpin end of the included charger lead. The other end plugs into any USB port, making this a portable toy that remains discreet in your hotel room or even just by your bed. Or on the desk of your home office. Ahem.

There’s a red LED behind the power/function button which lights up when the vibrator is charging.

Once it’s done (I left mine overnight to be sure), just screw the top of the Diamond back on again and you have your Twenty One Diamond vibrator ready to use.

The power button is easy to locate on the side of the vibrator and you continue pushing it to discover the settings. There’s 3 speeds, 7 vibration modes in total. As usual I had to go to the highest constant vibration to see if I could become aroused by this toy, then become aroused enough to climax. I don’t really get off on the teasing on/off pulses, ascending or oscillating patterns on vibrators, for me they may as well not exist. Give me powerful but deep vibration and that’s me sorted.

As for the Twenty One Diamond vibrator there is no doubt that the internal motor is pushing out some powerful vibration. The problem is that it doesn’t travel through the outer casing of the vibrator very well. There’s two issues here: the fact that the vibrations from the motor have to get through the outer material/shape of the toy and the fact that this is an unusual shape for a sex toy. The vibrations are not directly on the other side of the outer casing, they seem to be coming from the centre. This means that I felt I was experiencing an echo of what would have started as a powerful vibration, instead of the powerful vibration directly from (or as close as possible to) the source.

It was also a struggle to know how to hold the Twenty One Diamond vibrator. Sure it looks pretty – it would make a gorgeous paperweight, particularly if you’re into your ‘gold’ bling – but when the going gets dirty and you want sexual release it doesn’t really matter what the thing looks like. To me, anyway. The only thing I’m wanting to admire at that point is just how quickly and/or effectively the sex toy can get me to and through orgasm. I knew I had a gorgeous looking sex toy in my hand. My clit didn’t care; it wouldn’t succumb to the aesthetic charms that Bijoux Indiscrets are famous for. I do so hate when my clit and I disagree about a sex toy.

And that’s what’s sadly happened on this occasion. I love the idea of the Twenty One Diamond vibrator, I adore the look and I feel that this is a sex toy I *should* love. But I don’t. Not really, not in that “fuck I must try it again right now” way or in that “jesus when can I slip off for 5 minutes with my new toy and will anyone notice” way. For me, this is an “ooh, pretty!” toy rather than a “grrrr take me to heaven and back, you sexy beast” sex toy. It wasn’t a novelty or an ornament I was after. It was sexual satisfaction through easily achieved orgasms, and lots of them.

In summary: a disappointing vibrator which, in practice, didn’t live up to the hype for me. It’s not the perfect shape for the clitoral stimulation I like and the vibrations didn’t come through strongly enough to the surface. God knows I’ve tried to love this thing enough times but my clit isn’t budging on the subject. Tried the sides, the point, the flat top, the thin edge – everywhere. Case closed, no orgasms for me. Back to the Doxy and back to the drawing board for the Bijoux Indiscrets team in my opinion. Sorry guys ‘n gals!

    I had pretty much the same experiences with BI’s Twenty One as you, but with a few more problems. They sent me a second because I couldn’t get the top off of the first one I received. Ditto with the second. Even Parrot couldn’t get them open. After the first few times I used the first Twenty One I received, it failed to change speeds or shut off. I had to let it die out.

      Thanks for your comment. Yeah I didn’t have quite as many problems as you; my main problem is that it just doesn’t make me orgasm no matter how I use it. I thought I was the only one though as everyone else I’ve spoken to seems to love it.
