Shine On: How to Clean and Care for Your Moissanite Jewellery

Your moissanite jewellery is a true treasure—stunning, ethical, and environmentally friendly. At Boujee Ice, we take pride in offering jewellery that not only radiates beauty but also embodies sustainability. To ensure your moissanite jewellery continues to dazzle, here's a guide on how to clean and care for these brilliant gems.

Why Moissanite? Before we dive into the care guide, let's quickly recap why moissanite is a shining star in the world of fine jewellery:

  • Exceptional Brilliance: Moissanite's fire and brilliance rival that of any gemstone, making it a dazzling choice.

  • Ethical Sourcing: Moissanite is created in a lab, eliminating any concerns about unethical mining practices.

  • Environmentally Friendly: The lab-grown process significantly reduces the environmental impact compared to traditional mining.

Now, let's make sure your moissanite jewelry continues to captivate with its radiant sparkle.

Cleaning Your Moissanite Jewellery: Regular cleaning is key to preserving your jewellery's brilliance. Here's how to do it effectively:

  1. Gentle Cleaning: Use a mild dish soap or jewellery cleaner and warm water. Avoid harsh chemicals that can damage the metal settings.

  2. Soak and Brush: Place your jewellery in the soapy water and let it soak for a few minutes. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush to gently scrub away dirt and grime. Pay attention to the back of the stone and the setting where dirt can accumulate.

  3. Rinse and Dry: Rinse the jewellery in warm water to remove any soap residue. Pat it dry with a soft, lint-free cloth.

Caring for Your Moissanite Jewellery: Beyond cleaning, some simple practices can help keep your moissanite jewellery in top condition:

  1. Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Moissanite is highly resistant to damage, but harsh chemicals can affect the metal settings. Remove your jewellery before using cleaning chemicals or swimming in chlorinated pools.

  2. Store Separately: To prevent scratching, store your moissanite jewellery separately from other pieces. Consider using individual jewellery pouches or soft cloth bags.

  3. Regular Inspections: Periodically check your jewellery for loose stones or damaged settings. A jeweler can quickly address any issues.

  4. Professional Cleaning: Consider professional cleaning and inspection annually. Experts can assess the setting's integrity and give your jewellery a thorough cleaning.

  5. Avoid Impact: Moissanite is a hard gem, but it can still chip if subjected to hard impact. Remove your jewellery during strenuous activities.

A Sustainable Sparkle: Your moissanite jewellery from Boujee Ice is more than just a beautiful piece; it's a commitment to a brighter, more sustainable future. With proper cleaning and care, your moissanite jewellery will continue to radiate brilliance, ethically and environmentally.

In conclusion, by following these simple cleaning and care tips, your moissanite jewellery will remain a stunning testament to your commitment to ethical, sustainable, and beautiful jewellery. Keep shining brightly with Boujee Ice and the Diamonds of the Future.
