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.
From the packaging and quick shipment to the actual ring it was a great experience. The ring is perfect, shiny and clean. I would recommend following their size suggestions to get a correct fit!

Over all best products, service, packaging everything. I have very sensitive skin and knowing I can wear a necklace and earrings without a rash is so amazing. Thank you! Also the packaging is so cute I’m in love
I wear a size 7 on my ring finger, but it was sold out in that size, so I got an 8, figuring I’d use it on my middle or pointer finger. The size 8 actually fit my ring finger perfectly. I wear my rose gold wedding ring on my left hand, and this ring on my right hand. It’s minimalist, but looks luxe and expensive. It doesn’t look cheap at all. True to what was advertised, it did not turn my fingers green, and I even accidentally went to the gym with it because it’s so comfortable. Shipping was very fast — I love this brand and can’t wait to get more! Please note that I have lupus and hyper eosinophilic syndrome as well as mast cell activation syndrome, so I’m VERY sensitive to chemicals, metals, etc, and I had absolutely no reaction to this whatsoever. It’s awesome to be able to feel pretty and stylish again, and wear jewelry again without spending a million dollars to buy 14kt solid gold jewelry because I reacted poorly to everything else. This means the world to me to be able to have safe and stylish accessories to wear, and helps me feel normal, stylish, and pretty again. I would definitely recommend this brand to anyone looking for stylish and affordable jewelry.

I have not taken this ring off since receiving it. It's super cute and classic. Highly recommend.
I love simple pieces and it’s hard to find jewelry that’s not expensive yet withstands day-to-day activities. It’s a first-world problem but trying to remember to remove rings before washing your hands is annoying, especially at work! This brand is exciting, firstly for the materials used (brilliant idea!), secondly for the price point. I’ve bought supposedly high quality, gold-plated pieces elsewhere to see them tarnish after wearing only a handful of times. I love these simple rings (and the chains, too!) and have pretty much bought way too many for my bank account’s good. But I won’t have to buy any more for awhile! Looking forward to seeing what else this company will create. Keep up the great work!
