HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY MOISSANITE JEWELRY?
You may clean moissanite the same way you would diamond or any other fine gemstone. As with any fine jewelry item, an ultrasonic cleaner can be used. However, it is best to be gentle with your valuable treasures. You can also clean your moissanite jewelry using a commercial (non-acid based) jewelry cleaner or with mild soap and water using a soft toothbrush.
THERE IS A HAZE OR FILM ON THE STONE, TRIED CLEANING IT BUT IT WON’T COME OFF, IS THIS NORMAL?
Gemstones are exposed to many different elements when you wear them. Because of this, an organic build-up or “film” can occur on created gemstones such as moissanite. It is not harmful to the gemstone however it cannot be removed with over the counter jewelry cleaner or with a jewelry store cleaning.
This film can be easily removed with a Sunshine Polishing Cloth. Another option that works well would be to use any silversmith polish that can be found in your local hardware or grocery store. Feel free to contact our Customer Service department with any specific questions related to cleaning moissanite.
ARE THERE ANY CHEMICALS I SHOULD AVOID WHILE WEARING MY RING? CLEANING, POOL, ETC.
Monte Lab Diamond created moissanite gemstones can be cleaned with any typical jewelry cleaner or cloth. You can find jewelry cleaner or clothes in many drug stores or big box retail stores such as Walmart, Target, etc. Further, moissanite gemstones may be placed in ultrasonic cleaners for cleaning as long as the jewelry setting will allow for such cleaning.
Typical jewelry settings designed with 14K gold can be cleaned with the typical jewelry cleaner for gold jewelry. Plated jewelry, such as Platineve or silver plated with gold or platinum, should be cared for as per the designer’s instructions. Further, plated jewelry should not be cleaned in a heated ultra-sonic cleaner, soaked in jewelry cleaner for extended amounts of time, exposed to harsh chemicals (bleach, ammonia, etc.), pools or hot tubs.
CAN MOISSANITE WITHSTAND REPAIRS AND SIZING?
Yes. Moissanite is an extremely stable material. It is durable, tough and highly resistant to scratching, abrasion, breaking and chipping. Its high heat tolerance makes moissanite very unlikely to experience damage during jewelry repair.
CAN MOISSANITE GEMSTONES BE RE-SET INTO NEW JEWELRY?
Yes. Resetting your moissanite gemstone(s) into a new piece of jewelry can be done by an experienced jeweler. Jewelry designers and manufacturers create their jewelry collections featuring Monte Lab Diamond created moissanite using techniques very similar to those practiced by bench jewelers.
CAN I ENGRAVE MY MOISSANITE STONE?
Yes. You can engrave your moissanite stone after your purchase, after all, it is now a part of your personal story. Please be aware that any engraving done post-purchase on the stone will void Monte Lab Diamond’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
