Pmoua:  I’ve had the same problem. I tried so many different things and the only thing that works for me is “Invisible Glass” which is an automotive glass cleaner. I soak my ring in that and use the rough side of a sponge to scrub it a bit. Most people say it’s left over residue from cutting or polishing or something, but I think it might be some kind of surface oxidation or something. I have no idea.

Toothpaste and a few minutes of rubbing will get it off. I have this problem as well with my unenhanced moissy. According to BTD, it seems to be some sort of reaction with the glue residue the gem cutters use and household cleaning products. I leave my ring on a lot when I’m cleaning.

It seems as if a lot of people keep having this issue. Does it make anyone regret gatting a moissy? Just curious because I had one and it did the same thing 🙁

Pmoua:  I just had this issue last month. I called Charles and Colvard. They sent a letter explaining it just happens with the gems and sent a wipe. The wipe took it right off!!!!! It worked amazing. All this was free! Let me know if you need their phone number. You just call and they send it all out to you.

I had this same issue when I first got my ring and it drove me absolutely crazy!!! Like others said it seems to become leftover residue. I tried a lot of the things mentioned above but none seemed to work for me. What did end up working was nail polish remover.
