this is probably a stupid question but I don’t even own a Jewlery cleaner and just got my moissy in palladium setting. Can anyone recommend a good cleaner for it? I want it always sparkly!!
Is there any sort of buffer or polish or something you can use on the band to protect it more from every day use?

I think you can just use any regular jewelry cleaner on moissanite. Most jewelry stores have them and some grocery stores do. I’ve also seen them at places like JoAnns Fabric. You can get a polishing cloth to shine it up but a) I’m not sure that palladium needs it and b) what you’re doing with a polishing cloth is removing metal, so while it will remove scratches, it does that by removing the metal down to the level of the scratches… so that’s not really protecting it at all. There’s not really anything you can do to protect a ring band other than not wear the ring.

I have a palladium ring, and I use a toothbrush and a really gentle hand soap to clean it once a week. I dry it with a soft towel aftewards. It looks really really nice every time I clean it! I take it in for professional cleaning ~every 6 months.

@Mrs. Wallaby: I do this with my white gold/diamond. One of the times I wash my hands, I just soap up the ring and gently scrub in the setting with a soft brush.

This might sound crazy, but I read on another forum about soaking (overnight) or boiling (15 min) your ring in a 1-1 mixture of vinegar and hydrogen peroxide, and it really works! It makes your ring very shiny and kills any bacteria hiding in it (in detailing or crevices; can cause dermatitis). I’ve done it a number of times on mine. It’s safe for diamonds; I’m not sure about moissanite, but I don’t see why it would be any different.

I bought this jewelry cleaner off amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004FJRPDC/ref=oh_details_o09_s00_i01
I was half expecting it not to work but after two of the 3 minute cycles my ring was even more sparkly then when I first got it, and this was after 6 months of no cleaning :O
If it’s in your budget, it’s worth a try 🙂

@Sitori: She linked to this ultrasonic cleaner.
I just use a little bit of soap and water. A little dawn on a wash cloth and I scrub then rinse.
