How can I properly take care of my Moissanite jewelry?
Any fine jewelry must NOT be worn in the gym. While the Moissanite stone itself is hard to chip and get damaged, we normally use 14k solid gold with the stone and gold is malleable. It can easily get scratched and could be disfigured during your work out. After each use of your Halley Reh Moissanite jewelry, wipe it with the cleaning cloth and store it in the pouch provided in our packaging to keep it looking like new.

You may also use ultrasonic jewelry cleaner for deep cleaning.
