Moissy will not cloud.  It is stable, whereas CZ is not, that is why CZ clouds.  If you check out the BTD boards, you can see some there that are 5 or 10 years old.

do not fear! moissy will not cloud. 

my wedding band is moissanite, and I do not treat my rings with kid gloves. I don’t take them off when I wash my hands, swim in a beach or pool, and I clean them with things like windex or rubbing alcohol with a toothbrush. I’ve been wearing this ring every day for a year and a half, and the stones are still 100% as sparkly as they day I got them. 

I think you are approximately as likely to crack your moissanite as you would a diamond. in fact, if the diamond has inclusions, then you are more likely to chip it! so the way I see it, moissanites are a little bit safer (just my theory).

I have a question for those of you who bought your Moissy online….what are the guarantees?  

 

I know for my ring, I take it to the jeweler every year for a proper cleaning and to be inspected to make sure none of the stones are loose.  How does that work when you buy a ring online?

 

Those moissy rings are significantly less than diamond rings– but they are sitll a considerable investment.  The RHR I had my eyes on would cost upwards of $2,000.  For me, I’d want a little more assurance that I could physically take it to someone for repair if needed….

 

Just wanted some insights and views on that…

 

**I’ve had my ring set for 6 years.  Last year, one of the prongs on my center diamond needed to be fixed and one of my channel set diamonds in the band was loose.

@JaneyDcat:  I found myself a local jeweler that I love. I’m glad I found one because I feel like I can trust her. sure, the maintenance cost is not part of a “plan”, but I feel like her rates are reasonable. 

I recently took my two rings in to have the prongs tightened and to have them well cleaned/polished, and it cost $35.  If I only do this once a year, I don’t mind paying that. I chose a location near where I live so it’s easy for me to pop in with questions.
