Does Moissanite Go Cloudy?
As a newly popular engagement ring option in Australia, the quality and longevity of moissanite rings is often queried. A common question we’re asked is; will moissanite will go cloudy?
Moissanite is a high-quality, genuine gemstone and will never go cloudy, discoloured or dull. Some other stones, like cubic zirconia, are inclined to discolour over time due to their chemical makeup and instability in certain environments. These stones can also be porous, absorbing cosmetics and dirt, quickly becoming irreversibly dull. Rest assured, your moissanite is comprised of the chemical compound silicon carbide (SiC), which is extremely durable, impermeable, and the perfect gemstone to last a lifetime.
When compared with a diamond, moissanite naturally has more fire (the coloured or rainbow sparkle that you can see when the stone is exposed to light), as well as a higher brilliance (the white light return of the stone when exposed to light), making it appear more sparkly.
We source our own, highest quality moissanite, with the best colour and clarity. Our highly skilled gem cutters precisely cut your moissanite stone to optimise the fire and brilliance, and enhance its natural beauty.
With everyday wear, you may notice your ring becomes less sparkly. But

regularly, your Moissanite engagement ring will maintain its beautiful
sparkle and shine forever.
