Why does Moissanite appear milky white?

August 6, 2021

Some customers may feel that their moissanite is creamy white, there are many reasons for this phenomenon, and we have ways to avoid man-made results.

Reasons:

  1. Moissanite needs to be optimized under high temperature and high pressure. If it is over-optimized, the stone will look milky white.
  2. Customers do not pay attention to protection when wearing jewelry, Moissanitehas the characteristics of lipophilic.

Or items that come into contact with chemical components when worn by customers, such as cosmetics, perfumes, etc.; even hot water or chemicals during bathing may cause this problem.

  1. The first thing to look at is whether it is compared with other Mozambicans or with diamonds. If it is compared with diamonds, they are not the same material, and Mozambique is relatively less transparent than diamonds. If it is compared with other Moissanite, then it may be the reason mentioned above.

How to deal with it?

  1. Moissanite is lipophilic and is easier to bond to oil stains. Therefore, in addition to taking care of the moissanite jewelry on occasions where it is easy to encounter oil stains, it should be cleaned every month to maintain the brilliance of the moissanite.
  2. Moissanite jewelry can be rinsed with warm water, and then use a soft cloth to gently absorb the residual moisture and wipe it clean to keep the moissanite bright. You can also mix clean water and alcohol, soak the Moissanite jewelry in the mixture for about half an hour, then gently scrub with a toothbrush, and then use a paper towel to absorb the moisture.
  3. There is a kind of jewelry cleaning liquid on the market, which has a significant effect on cleaning Moissanite jewelry. You can use a small bowl or teacup to hold warm water and add an appropriate amount of cleaning liquid to the water. Then immerse the jewelry in water, wash it lightly with a toothbrush, and place it in a net bag, rinse it with warm water under the tap, and finally soak it dry with a soft lint-free cloth.

Cleaning is the most common way to maintain moissanite, and the usual wearing habits are more important. Take off the pendant when wearing hedging-style clothes, and take off the jewelry when you sleep or take a bath. Although it may not be so easy to come into contact with various extreme environments, it still needs attention to keep the moissanite bright and beautiful.
