Fine jewellery, especially engagement and wedding rings are meant for everyday wear.
Ranking at 9.25 on the MOHS scale of hardness, moissanite is one of the most durable gemstones used in jewellery. The gem is highly scratch resistant and handles rough exposure extremely well. Read on for our tips on how to care for moissanite jewellery.
How to clean moissanite jewellery
One of the best ways to clean your moissanite pieces at home is to use a mild soap, warm water and a cloth or toothbrush. Place your moissanite piece in the soapy solution for 1 minute, and gently brush around the stone with a soft toothbrush. Rinse the ring with cold water to get rid of any soapy residue and pat dry with a 100% cotton cloth.

What to avoid
Avoid harsh chemicals when cleaning your moissanite, including household detergents, cosmetics, hair sprays and chlorine. While these won’t directly damage the stone, they add to the grime build up and reduce the sparkle of the stone.
As moissanite is a very hard stone, it is likely to scratch softer gemstones and metals. We recommend storing your moissanite piece separately to your precious jewels to prevent scratching.
