How to Clean a Moissanite Ring

You’ve been showing off your brilliant, sparkly moissanite for months. Now you notice your moissanite is looking…a little dull. A little cloudy, even. But don’t worry - this is temporary, as moissanite doesn’t turn cloudy over time. With a little cleaning, your ring will be good as new.

You can clean your moissanite right at home with ingredients and tools you probably already have around the house. Keep reading to find out the best way to clean your moissanite and restore its beautiful shine!

What causes moissanite to get dirty?

Like any other precious stone - diamond, emerald, or otherwise - moissanite can get dirty. Over time, dirt and chemicals can build up and dull your moissanite’s shine. Everyday wear exposes your moissanite to buildup from chemicals, makeup, dirt, and oils.

This buildup causes a film to form on the stone’s surface, which can have a dulling or clouding effect on your moissanite ring. This reduction in sparkle is temporary, and can easily be resolved at home in a few quick steps.

How to clean your moissanite ring

Let’s get to the good stuff - how to clean your moissanite ring and bring back its signature sparkle. Anytime you notice your ring looking a little dull is a good time to clean. Usually, that means cleaning your ring at home about once a month.

You’ll need:

-a small bowl

-warm water 

-dish soap 

-clean, unused toothbrush 

-microfiber cloth 

Now that you’ve gathered your supplies, let’s walk through the steps of how to clean your moissanite ring:

  1. 1. First, fill a small bowl with warm, but noit boiling, water.

  1. 2. Next, squeeze dish soap into the water and mix thoroughly. Place your ring in the mixture, and leave it there for 5 to 10 minutes. This gives the soap time to work its way into the dirt and debris. 

  1. 3. Then, using a toothbrush, gently brush the stone in circular motions.

  1. 4. Rinse off your ring with warm water, then dry it with a cloth (microfiber material works best). 

  1. 5. And there you have it - your moissanite has been restored to its sparkliest state!

Tips on how to keep your moissanite ring clean

To minimize the amount of buildup on your moissanite ring and kepe it clean, here are some tips:

Keep your moissanite away from chemicals

It might seem counterintuitive, but keep your moissanite ring away from harsh chemicals, including cleaning products and chlorine. These substances can build up on your ring and make it look cloudy. Take off your ring and set it aside when you’re cleaning around the house or working with chemicals to keep it safe.

Put your ring on after you do your hair and makeup

Products like hairspray and eyeshadow can dull your moissanite’s appearance quickly. Do your morning beauty routine first, then put on your ring for the day. This will keep your moissanite clean from cosmetic product buildup and keep it looking sparkly for longer.

Remove your ring before physical or manual activity

This one might seem obvious, but it’s worth reinforcing. If you’re into camping, hiking, gardening, or other outdoor activities, take off your ring beforehand if possible. If you work with your hands, or have hobbies like woodworking, it’s best to work ringless as well. That way, you can prevent your ring from getting dirty while you’re working and playing hard.

Store your ring properly

When you’re not wearing your ring, make sure it’s not just sitting out in the open collecting dust. Store your ring in a soft fabric pouch or cloth-lined jewelry box to protect it from getting dirty.
