Does Moissanite Get Cloudy? (Jewellery Experts Expose the Truth)

Maybe you’re considering a moissanite ring, maybe you’re already wearing one on your finger. You already know it’s a super durable gemstone and you love its intense fire, but there’s one question that keeps creeping into your mind: does moissanite get cloudy?

Of course, you want your moissanite to sparkle and shine forever. Moissanite can handle pressure, scratches, and high heat - but you want to make sure it doesn’t dull or go hazy over time.

We’ve got good news for you: moissanite does not get cloudy! However, chemical buildup and dirt can start to dull its shine; same as with diamonds and other precious stones. 

If you keep your moissanite clean, it’ll be crystal clear forever. Read on to find out how to keep your moissanite clean, sparkly, and looking its best over time.

Does moissanite lose its sparkle?

Moissanite will never lose its sparkle; just like you, you shining diamond. It just has to be grown and cut properly. At Keyzar, we cut our own moissanite in-house to make sure it’s clear and brilliant - and it never goes cloudy or loses its brilliance. 

As is the case with diamonds, even the highest quality moissanite can still get dirty. Life happens, and daily wear means your moissanite can be exposed to buildup from oils; cosmetics; chemicals. 

This kind of buildup can dull your moissanite’s sparkle temporarily. A film can form on the surface and block its shine, but don’t panic - you can get it off quickly and easily! A little TLC (tender love and cleaning) will refresh your moissanite and have it looking brand new in no time.

How to keep your moissanite squeaky clean

To keep your moissanite shining and sparkling away, give it a thorough cleaning from time to time. When you notice it’s looking a little dull, it’s prime time for a cleaning. Monthly cleanings will keep your moissanite looking its best.

How to clean cloudy moissanite to bring back its sparkle

  1. 1. To renew your moissanite’s sparkle, fill a bowl with warm (but not boiling) water.
  2. 2. Add dish soap to the water, then mix.
  3. 3. Leave the ring in the water for 5 to 10 minutes to let the soap work its way into the dirt and debris.
  4. 4. Softly brush the stone in circular motions with a toothbrush.
  5. 5. Rinse with warm water, then dry with a cloth (microfiber works best).
  6. 6. Voila - your moissanite is back to being its sparkly self!

Even though moissanite is one tough gemstone, you don’t want to subject it to harsh chemicals. Try not to expose your sparkly stone to household cleaners or chlorine.

Try not to get hairspray or eyeshadow on your ring, either. These products won’t damage your moissanite, but can contribute to that pesky cloudy film you’ll have to clean off later.


If your moissanite has started to look cloudy, cleaning it makes for a quick fix. Take good care of your moissanite with regular cleanings and proper storage, and it will add sparkle to your life forever!


How to store moissanite jewelry?

When your moissanite isn’t sitting pretty on your finger, take care to store it properly and keep it safe. You’ll want to make sure not to leave it out in the open where it can get dirty. Soft fabric pouches and fabric-lined jewelry boxes are perfect resting places for your moissanite.

Will my moissanite last forever?

An engagement ring symbolizes that your relationship will last forever - but will your moissanite? Absolutely - moissanite is super durable and has sparkle and shine that won’t fade over the years. Keyzar creates high quality, lab grown moissanite that will sparkle for a lifetime.
