Is it Charles and Colvard brand moissanite? If so you should have the warranty card. Call the number and explain what happened. In the mean time, I’d definitely take it to a jewler and see what the deal is and even if it’s a moissanite ( looks like a cloudy cz to me). Even have it professionally cleaned by the jewler. I’ve had my forever brilliant for 8-9 years and it’s never looked like your picture.

Try some silver polish and if that doesn’t work file a complaint with C&C! (I’m assuming it’s a C&C moissanite due to its age).

If it’s real moissanite  it doesn’t xhange. Ever. 

Possibly you have an enhanced stone and the coating is breaking down.

Im wondering if you have the “oil-slick” phenomenon. Try silver polish or abrasive toothpaste.

That looks like a cloudy CZ to me. Did it happen suddenly or slowly over time? Try to find out exactly what the stone is.

bornella :  Definitely have it tested! MoissaniteCo had a CZ company that used the same settings 4 years ago. Maybe there was a mixup with your ring and you got a CZ accidentally? To me that doesn’t look like the oil slick stain.

Awww, how disappointing!! Moissanite isn’t supposed to lose shine like that! If it doesn’t shine up with a sunshine cloth or silver polish, I’d ask for a new one.

I’m curious how you guys know her Moissanite doesn’t shine by this pic? I have one also and I can’t tell much difference between hers and mine 😖

I’d get it checked that it’s not a cz. That looks a lot like my czs look after a few months
