Mine is a Garnet.  Love it…  no scratches or anything for not quite 2 years now.  I just clean it in my little ultrasonic cleaner along with the rest of my jewelry.

@FutureMrsHolmes:  I consider myself pretty fair on this topic since I have and love diamonds, moissy and a few colored gems. I bought an inexpensive, silver, moissy RHR w/a 1.1 ct princess/square brilliant stone as a gift/reward to myself and to test drive me some moissy sparkle, and I wear that darn thing EVERYWHERE (been a little over a year now) and I get constant positive comments on it. It has been put through the ringer of tests … gardening, working on the farm, four wheeling, dropped on the floor a few times, travel, shooting guns, you name it, my moissy has probably been there and done that with me. The setting itself is a little scratched as a result, but that darn stone doesn’t have a crack, chip, cut, nothing!

My s/o noticed its endurance too, and gave it kudos for standing up to our lifestyle (he wasn’t onboard with moissy for an ering either at first but quickly saw it’s many merits). That stone still sparkles like the day I took it out of the box. If it was a nicer/fancier/pricier setting and my ering, I’d not have worn it doing that stuff obviously. In my opinion, Moissy endures as well as any other jewelry I have ever owned (including my pretty little former lumps of coal). If you’re not a ‘gotta-be-diamond” kind of person (no offense to those who are), and you’re just desiring a durable, beautiful, sparkly white/clear stone for a reasonable price, moissanite is a GREAT forever option that I don’t think will disappoint. Finding yourself an inexpensive moissy piece on clearance from C&C or MoissyCo and test driving it yourself is a great way to see how it will hold up … or you could step on the wild side with us gemstone lovers and get yourself some color!

Just remember, in 99% of real life, unless you’re in some super elite social circle, no one gives a damn what you have on your finger if it’s tasteful and your style. They’ll oooh and ahhh over the sparkle, and move on with their day. They won’t go home, jump online, and talk about your ring with a crap ton of internet strangers. YOU have to love it, and be able to live with it each day, and it needs to live with your lifestyle as well through work, babies, diapers, dishes, folding laundry, etc.  

As it were, my guy knew I’d been admiring a beautiful, natural alexandrite (stock pic is my av) I saw when looking up his birthstone last year, and he bought that exact gem for setting in my ER. God willing and the creek don’t rise, I’m hoping to get the custom setting finally finished here in the next month or two (meeting w/jeweler tomorrow morning). But I am hot on the trail of a new setting for my moissy, or picking up another, and maybe some earrings to spoil myself with.

Good luck in your search for the perfect sparkle!

I have a sapphire and diamond ring that is about 80 years old.  It takes minimal care, but since it is so old I have a tendency to baby it.

 

I have a diamonds and moissys that I clean with Sparkle Sparkle–a jewwelry cleaner I got at HSN.  The sparkles it leaves is just brilliant.

I’ve had my moissy from MoissaniteCo.com since January 2011. 

Every few months, I take it to a local jewelery store for them to inspect it and clean it. They’ve never said that anything has looked loose or out of place or chipped or anthing, and I am a HUGE clutz so I bang it off of crap all the time lol

I have a very high quality articficial diamond/ CZ ring. I wanted a 4 carat tiffany style solitare but no way do we have the money to pay over 100k! My ring is set in white gold and was custom made by a local jewler. No one, even my friend who is a gemologit at tiffanys can tell the difference, for me I would rather have something that looks sparkly, pretty and impressive then something with an impressive price tag!!

I have a moissy and I LOVE it. I love how it sparkles! Mine doesn’t emit much color at all, I only notice a grey-ish hue when I’m in the car. It was handmade off Etsy. I love the detailing in the band. I love that it’s a bezel, too!
