My fiance bought me a beautiful 1.2k cushion cut FB Moissanite ering from MoissaniteCo in November. I love it, never take it off. I noticed a few weeks ago that it had a smokey kind of rainbow looking film on it that just wouldn’t come off. I used soap and water, jewelry cleaner, soft cloths, everything I could think of. I was beginning to regret the choice that we made to pick moissy over a diamond. In a stroke of brilliance today I used Soft Scrub – yes the stuff that you clean the sinks and toilets with – and a toothbrush and gently scrubbed it for about 5 minutes and…….ta dah, good as new. I was seriously starting to freak out about the fact that this beautiful ring was stained and I would never get it back to its original brilliant shine. So if you have noticed the same on your, Soft Scrub will do the trick.

Windex is also awesome! I soak it and use a toothbrush.

Thank you for the tip! I came back to Wbee after a long hiatus because I noticed the same thing on my FB moissanite and, while I’d successfully gotten the film off with toothpaste before, there seems to be more of it and scrubbing with baking soda didn’t work! I don’t have Soft Scrub but I’m going to try some Comet. :/

Creiddylad: omg Comet is an abrasive! ack! That approach would scare me.
I don’t know the product that the OP mentioned.

FauxPas2012: Maybe I’ll try toothpaste first. But isn’t Soft Scrub an abrasive as well? :/
As moissanite is harder than sapphire, I’m not super worried about scratching it. My ring originally had a brushed finish, which has worn away, so I’m also not concerned about ruining the polish on the ring– I wouldn’t mind returning it to its former state. 🙂
I think I’ll try toothpaste and post again about whether that worked.

I used a jewelry cleaning cloth & silver cleaning paste. First applied a silver cleaning paste, just the right amount to cover my stone. I rubbed, and rubbed and rubbed. 10-15min of repeated rubbing (vigorous rubbing). Cleaned it with running water and a soft brush dipped into connoisseurs solution to make sure that the silver paste is all gone). Then after, i rubbed it with the jewelry cleaning cloth (the one with the light and dark colored one). Total cleaning time 1hour.
Tadaaaa! All worth it!

erikayamaguchigarcia : For the love. Please stop commenting on every single archaic thread. One is enough to bump the board up and searchers will find it.
Oh, and if you just want to show off a sparkly, you can just say that. People love to see rings (when they’re not bombarded with a million pics on 10 different threads.)

Don’t worry, it’s tricky to know what’s best. I’ve been on other sites where newcomers get slated for starting new threads on topics that have been covered before and are searchable.
