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'm an engineer and I found myself working with machinery frequently enough that I was absolutely trashing my wedding rings, I didn't want to buy something that was worth anything because I knew I'd scratch it pretty quickly - so a steel wedding band was a great solution. I've been wearing it for two weeks constantly and it's held up well! The 'gold' is yellower than 18k, a little too yellow for my personal preference but still pretty. The size 5 fits like. 4.5, and it's comfortable.
I love my ring and wear it everyday.
I've worn my ring everyday since I received it, I don't take it off when I wash my hands or do the dishes, only when I shower. So far the gold is holding up! I'm very impressed for the price. I hate buying gold-filled jewelry because the gold comes off very quickly with daily wear but this ring looks great! No tarnishing or green skin. Have already bought another ring from Ready-Made!
I risked buying this because I wasn't sure if the quality would be good or if the ring would fit. I was pleasantly surprised! Great quality! As for the fit, it didn't fit the finger I wanted. I usually wear my rings on my middle finger, but it's a little loose (my ring size is usually a 9, but I got a 10 because of the size description). If you're looking for minimalistic jewelry, this is the place for you. I'd rebuy it in my regular ring size. I don't plan on returning the ring because it's too much of a hassle, plus it fits comfortably on my index finger.
The prettiest gold color, true to size (as long as you follow instructions), and definitely worth the price! Will be ordering again very soon :))
The ring of course doesn’t feel like real gold, but it does look like it.
It’s perfect! Can’t say more than that. It’s exactly what I wanted. 10/10 🥰
This ring is beautiful! I definitely should have went with a size 8 since size 9 was too big, I am normally a 7/7.5 depending on which finger. I will definitely be ordering a lot more from ready made!!
I’ve never really been into rings or jewelry. However, I came across an Instagram ad for ready-made rings and I am so glad I bought one! They’re so well made, simple, and beautiful with any outfit. I’m definitely interested in buying more.
I was so happy to receive yet another gold basic object ring. I now have three in my collection and wear them essentially every day . Good quality and perfect minimalist style
