For all silver pieces, yes.
For rose gold and gold pieces:
Earrings and pendants: Yes.
Rings and chains: No, but you can wash hands carefully. Please note that the damage is mostly caused by scratching when your rings come in contact with abrasive surfaces. With rings and chains having the most contact and in addition to variables such as loofahs and abrasive shower gels or shampoos, we don’t recommend wearing our gold and rose gold rings or chains in the shower. However, unlike traditionally plated jewelry, our gold and rose gold rings and chains will survive the occasional shower or dip in the pool.

Yes, yes, yes. Ready-Made was created with the sensitive wearer in mind. We only use biocompatible materials that don’t harm living tissue. In fact, the materials we use are relied on extensively in the medical field as surgical tools and implants. We need to note that all stainless steel including our 316L stainless steel is composed of 5% nickel, but 316L is still certified as medical grade and biocompatible as the nickel is incorporated into the metal in a way that causes no skin reactions or harm. Less than 0.1% of the population can still have reactions to stainless steel, but you would know if this is true for you you as something as ordinary as buttons on jeans would have caused an allergic reaction.
Ready-Made has the health of the planet as a priority. Our core metal, stainless steel, is one of the most reused and recyclable metals on the planet, with more than an 85% strength retention rate. Our high-tech color plating processes release no fumes into the environment and leave no residue or liquids behind. We also don’t rely on any chemicals to change the coating color of our pieces, relying instead on wavelengths. We use 100% recyclable cellulose envelopes and mailers, 100% recycled paper for our cards and boxes, and have moved away from relying on plastic packaging to transport and store our inventory.
Every manufacturer that we collaborate with is ISO certified, meaning that they meet certain standards in occupational health and safety, environmental friendliness and compliance, and quality assurance and efficiency. Our founding team also periodically visits each factory for internal audits. They are also in direct communication with all factory managers. Our hazard-free manufacturing processes neither release fumes nor leave behind residues.
We don’t use traditional metals for three main reasons:
1. Transparency. There’s a lot of talk about fair mined metals, but not a lot being done to prove this transparency. Getting to the source of gold and gemstones including recycled and reclaimed gold was a hurdle we weren’t able to overcome with certainty when we were starting Ready-Made and thinking about how to offer quality jewelry made with integrity. Vendors giving us their word didn’t feel enough.
2. The traditional manufacturing process for gold plating isn’t eco-friendly. Due to the nature of soft metals, traditional processes like wet plating and heat are utilized, and that can not only cause damage to the environment, but can also be harmful to factory workers.
3. We want to take the guesswork out of alloys (mixed metals). The materials we use - surgical stainless steel and titanium nitrite - are used in the medical field as surgical tools and implants. For the most part, our tissues don’t reject these two materials. With gold, silver, and brass, there’s always that risk of these alloys being mixed with metals that your body isn’t compatible with, leading to irritation.
We want to offer something that is timeless, looks like fine jewelry (thanks to our smooth-as-butter plating and detailed metalwork), skin-safe, sustainable, environmentally friendly, and transparent — all at a more universal price point that is comparable in price to mass manufactured, gold plated and costume jewelry.
I love that these are screw on and reversible. It’s very comfortable on (I forget that i’m wearing them) and they’re so cute and nostalgic.
Star Stud (Single) - Gold
I have been wearing the these studs for a few weeks now and have been completely satisfied.
Earrings are so comfortable that I forget that I am wearing them.
They do not bother my eczema at all, and at this price point, for those with any skin sensitivities, it is well-worth it to try them out.
I have been wearing them constantly, and aside from a small wipe down here and there, the rose gold color has remained perfect.
Moon Stud (Single) - Gold
Love this stud it’s small enough to fit my tiny Targus like I wanted only thing is the ball is had to put on in that spot but it easy in my regular helix’s. It’s a very smooth and comfortable earring to sleep in.
got this and a couple other studs to wear everyday since I hate taking out earrings to change every day. they're perfectly simple, and go well with everything. the screw on back is very sturdy and I haven't been worried about the earring falling out at all. put them in the day I got them in the mail and haven't had to adjust since.
I have super sensitive ears and these have not hurt my ears at all! I am a fan
I LOVE these! They are so cute and very comfortable— I’ve been sleeping in them since I got them about 2 weeks ago. I also have the moon studs— I have one star and one moon in each ear and they look great together.
So stinking cute, good quality, sturdy and fast shipping.
I prefer earrings I can leave in for weeks at a time, and these are the best I’ve ever found! I love the back. I placed another order for the heart and moon studs also.
