How to Care for Your Moissanite Ring

"A gemstone born from the stars"

Moissanite has become a popular choice for jewelry, especially engagement rings, due to its stunning brilliance, durability, and affordability.

Whether you've recently been proposed to with a moissanite ring or you've treated yourself to this sparkling gem, knowing how to care for it will ensure it keeps its dazzling beauty for a lifetime.

Here’s everything you need to know about keeping your moissanite ring shining bright.

Understanding Moissanite

Before diving into care tips, it’s important to understand what makes moissanite special. Moissanite is a lab-created gemstone that closely resembles a diamond but offers unique properties, such as more fire and brilliance. It's nearly as hard as a diamond, ranking at 9.25 on the Mohs scale of hardness, making it suitable for daily wear.

Daily Care Tips

Keep it Clean

The brilliance of your moissanite can be dimmed by everyday activities. Lotions, soaps, and natural oils from your skin can cloud the stone. To keep your ring sparkling:

  • Soft Cleaning: Mix a little bit of gentle dish soap with warm water. Put your ring in it for about 20-30 minutes, then use a soft toothbrush to clean it gently. Make sure to brush under the gem too, because that's where dirt likes to hide.
  • Rinse and Dry: Wash your ring under warm water (make sure the drain is closed!) and dry it with a cloth that doesn’t leave fuzz behind.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Exposure to harsh chemicals can dull the appearance of your moissanite. When cleaning household items, gardening, or swimming in chlorinated water, consider removing your ring.

Professional Care

While moissanite is durable, having it checked by a professional jeweler once a year is advisable. They can check for loose settings and offer a thorough cleaning. This is also a good time to have your ring's setting and any side stones inspected for security.


When not wearing your moissanite ring, store it separately from other jewelry to avoid scratches. A fabric-lined jewelry box with dividers is ideal. If you’re traveling, consider a jewelry pouch or a ring box to protect it.

Handling Scratches and Repairs

Moissanite is hard to scratch but not impossible. If your ring does get scratched or the setting becomes loose, take it to a professional jeweler specializing in moissanite for repair. Do not attempt to fix it yourself, as improper handling could worsen the condition.

Caring for your moissanite ring ensures it will continue to sparkle and shine for years to come. Regular cleaning, proper storage, and occasional professional check-ups are key. Treat your moissanite ring with the love and attention it deserves, and it will remain a beautiful symbol of love or personal achievement in your jewelry collection.
