Nope. I haven’t seen any scratches on my moissanite. I did, however, hit it kinda lightly one day against a wooden desk and it smashed in on one side. I talked to the company and the owner said I probably hit it exactly at the right angle for that to have happened. The stone got replaced though. But here’s what it looked like:

Other than that nightmare, I’ve not seen a scratch on my moissanite, or my sapphire promise ring. How bad are your scratches?

No, still an unmarked surface like brand new (diamond), and I expect it to stay that way, as it can only be scratched by other diamonds. However, depending on how you store your jewelry, that can happen, like if you threw your diamond studs and engagement ring in the same jewelry box together. Gems should always be stored carefully!

I’ve had mine a little over a year now (sapphire), and no scratches.  I don’t wear it every day, though, and I keep it stored in its ring box where it won’t come into contact with anything else.

 

Now the platinum my rings are made of?  Those are scratched to hell in spite of gentle wearing.

@BrittanyE:  A sapphire actually can’t scratch a diamond. A sapphire is a 9 on the mohs scale, and a diamond is a 10. A sapphire can scatch an emerald, a moissanite can scratch a sapphire, and a diamond can scratch a moissanite. Nothing on earth is harder than diamond.

To OP, I’ve had my moissanite for around 9 months and it looks like the first day I got it.

@BrittanyE:  I have one (or a few). I thought I was the only one.

 I have a natural alexandrite 3 stone ring n sadly have scratches Its softer than a sapphire though. No scratches on my diamonds. The hardest natural gemstone is diamond, followed bysapphire.Regarding man made “stones”-moissanite is harder than cz.
