Moissanite is a durable gemstone that can last for a very long time with proper care. Moissanite is very hard, scoring 9.25 on the Mohs scale of hardness, which makes it a suitable choice for everyday wear. It is also resistant to scratches, chips, and cracks, which means that it can withstand normal wear and tear.

In terms of maintenance, moissanite is relatively low maintenance. It can be cleaned using a mild soap and water solution, or with a commercial jewelry cleaner. Avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures and store it separately from other jewelry to prevent scratches or damage. With proper care, moissanite can last for many years and maintain its brilliance and sparkle.

Moissanite jewelry can be cared for in a similar manner as diamond jewelry. It is recommended to clean moissanite with warm, soapy water and a soft-bristled brush to remove any dirt or debris. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasives as they can damage the stone. Moissanite can be stored in a soft jewelry pouch or box to prevent it from encountering other jewelry and potentially getting scratched. It is also important to take care when wearing moissanite jewelry. While it is durable, it can still chip or scratch if subjected to a strong impact. Avoid wearing moissanite jewelry during activities that may expose it to extreme heat or chemicals, such as cleaning with harsh chemicals or swimming in a chlorinated pool.

Finally, it is recommended to have moissanite jewelry inspected and professionally cleaned by a jeweler every six months to a year to ensure that the setting is secure, and the stone is in good condition. If your moissanite jewelry is from Brilliant Earth, visit one of our showrooms and we’ll clean it, free of charge.

Yes, moissanite is a popular alternative to diamonds for engagement rings. Many couples choose moissanite because it is more affordable than diamonds, but still has a similar brilliance and durability. Moissanite also has the added benefit of being an ethical and sustainable choice, as it is lab-grown and not mined from the earth.

When selecting a moissanite engagement ring, it is important to consider the cut, color, and clarity of the stone. Like diamonds, moissanite can come in different shapes such as round, oval, or princess cut. The color of moissanite can range from colorless to slightly yellow to blue or black, and the clarity can range from flawless to included. It is recommended to choose a moissanite that has a colorless or near-colorless appearance and a clarity grade of at least VS (very slightly included).
