I’ve heard about that too. Scary.  Honestly, I wouldn’t be too worried.  I would just take it somewhere and ask if they charge to do cleaning and checking.  Since your stone is a Moissanite you definitely should be able to notice if they try to replace it with something else.  Plus, it does take time to replace a stone properly and have the right size to swap it out, whereas a cleaning should be done in just a few minutes.

(1) find a local jeweler – I don’t mean a chain store, I mean a real jeweler who has a shop and has been in business with a good reputation for years

(2) get your stone mapped – a gemologist will draw your stone with all its variations, etc. – if you are concerned about the stone being swapped you take the ring to a jeweler and see if it’s different than its mapping

(3) add your ring to your insurance policy – this will cover loss, theft, etc.

The likelihood that a jeweler you take your ring to is going to swap out your moissanite stones with other, lesser quality moissanite stones is basically, none. I definitely wouldn’t worry about that. I also would not worry whatsoever about your pave/channel stones going missing during a cleaning — reputable, professional jewelers know what they are doing and you would be at less of a risk of damaging your ring having it cleaned professionally than doing it yourself.

Going to a local jeweler for cleaning and inspection a couple of times a year is definitely going to be worth the marginal cost for your peace of mind. So, after your 6 months is up, pick out a jeweler and have them check out your ring. Adding your ring on your insurance is always a good idea, as well.

Don’t stress — enjoy your ring and your engagement! 🙂
