I haven’t noticed this on my ring, but then again I’ve only had it for a couple weeks. Thanks for the heads up, though!! 🙂

@BrittMike12:  Thank you for the post!!   I noticed a dark spot after 6 months of having my ring and made the toothpaste past and rubbing alcohoL mixture.   Worked like a charm. I was ready to return the ring before I read on this site that it was the glue.  

Thank you for your post!

Hmmm, this might be a naive question, but I would think that they should send it to you completely free of any sort of adhesive residue or any other kind of residue???  I personally would be really frustrated if I get a moissy and that happens- I don’t want to have to worry about scrubbing it with toothpaste or anything else for 15 minutes every few months- I just want to clean it regular like any other stone…  Is this really a common thing???

I was so glad I found this! I got my ring nine months ago and just noticed little stains on the stone, especially near the prongs, and my jewllery cleaner did not remove them even with intense scrubbing! But a minute of brushing with just some toothpaste got rid of  them like a dream!

It seems to me this is not necessarily adhesive but rather that this material develops oil stains.

@BrittMike12:  Maybe it’s unique to your body chemistry somehow? Just like some people’s white gold rings need to be replated often, others seldom ever have to replate their gold.

I’ve heard that those Magic Erasers have gotten the stains out from others’ stones. Search the Better Than Diamond forum for this issue as I’m certain there was at least one thread about this there with suggested solutions.

Weird. I’ve had mine 2 years and have had nothing of the sort. Maybe it’s like pfinarffle suggested? I’m even terrible about cleaning it (I think it’s been like 6 months sine the last time I even thought about it) and don’t have any spots.

I have never seen or heard of these spots until just now, and I’ve had my ring for 6 months.  Does that mixture get rid of the adhesive for good or does the dirt build back up?  

The only time I’ve ever gotten a brown stain on my stone is when I’ve left it on to make brownies:-)

Hmm, I’ve had my ring for a while now and I don’t have any marks.  I did purchase my moissantie through a jeweler though.  I don’t even clean the ring, and I never  take it off.  I’m going to go with skin chemistry though (I also don’t need my white gold redipped).

@housebee:  I’m not sure what skin chemistry would have to do with dirt collecting on the top of the stone.

I did some research and appearantly this can happen with any stone. If adhesive is used when the stone is set it can collect gunk over time.  So if you set you own stones at home, don’t use a method that involves adhesive.

I have come to think that this is something of a defect in the stone, that it is oil stains that the stone gets

 

@BuBuBubbles:  I’m assuming that the oils are from OP’s skin.  Again, I’ve never experienced this, or even seen it, so I can’t really say.

i kept seeing some marks on the top of my moissanite that looked as though they were scratches!

turns out – it was residue from my fingers and the lines i could see were my fingerprints! one quick wipe and they were gone.

not seen any brown smudge marks, though!
