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 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 needed a band to replace my lost gold wedding ring, but I couldn't afford to replace it with another real gold band. I am so glad I tried this Ready-Made ring!!! I wear it 24/7, even while showering, washing dishes, bathing my kids, etc. It is comfortable and lightweight and looks like real gold. I have not noticed any color changes in the almost month of constant wear. In the future I will certainly try more Ready-Made gold jewelry when I am looking for a chain or bracelet! The prices and quality cant be beat.
I have been wearing this with the black diamond band from this company as my wedding band and ring. I don’t like rings that stick out like with a gallery or big diamond, but I wanted something with a little shine. This has worked great. I never take them off (although I know that’s advised) and they still look beautiful as when I purchased them.
This band is so simple and perfect. The metal looks great on my skin and the size is elegant. This was my first purchase but not my last. Every item I have bought is beautiful.
Had to get another one after someone gifted me one because they are just so pretty! i always get complimented on them.
I’ve used this ring for almost a month now and it’s so cute and love wearing it.. it’s hard to now shower with it but I try not to in case something does happen.. I love it
I actually bought this ring because the thin Saturn rings were out of stock, but I'm so glad I did! It's the perfect size, super comfortable, and the color exactly matches the couple gold vermeil pieces I have. Probably gonna come back for the thin ring too ;)
I love my ring and it shipped very quick. I’m going to order more
I purchased this simple band to layer with other rings but it has so much style and shine that I usually just wear it on it’s own. This is just one of many great finds at Ready-Made.
I’ve been slowly incorporating yellow gold pieces into my jewelry collection bc I usually only wear silver/white gold, so this ring was perfect to start with! I love it so much, very simple and elegant.
My wedding band is an eternity diamond band and I don't always want to wear it. The Basic Object ring is a great alternative if I was something simple but substantial. Wanna know a secret? I ALSO bought the Saturn ring in gold for when I want something dainty! Oh, yes, and my unidentified object ring for when I REALLY want to go chunky. Yup, I've got a big of an obsession...
