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.
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...
The ring is comfortable fit, so if you're thinking to buy rings; better 0.5 size up.
Im going to buy one more.
My sister and I bought 2 rings as matching sibling rings and absolutely love them. We love them so much we are thinking of buying one for our brother.
Basic Object Band - Gold
gave this to my mom for xmas and she loved it!
This ring fits true to size & is the perfect band for everyday wear. I get loads of compliments on it and I literally have not taken it off since the day I got it.
I love love love these rings! These really are incredibly made and the color does not look like those cheap gold rings from other outlet stores. They’re so comfy and I love how they pair well with everything. 💞
Great for the price! It’s really pretty and looks nice on the hand.
A little tight since I’m between sizes for the finger I wanted to wear the ring on but that’s not the company’s fault! Maybe half sizes can become an option at some point! Recommend and looks more expensive than it is.
i bought this ring, the saturn thin ring, and the cloned object band, but this has to be my favorite. it's so pretty by itself and also looks amazing when you stack it with other rings. none of them have tarnished or turned my finger green even though i literally never take it off, not even for the dishes or the shower. this brand is so worth the price and the hype. already purchasing more necklaces and a charm as i write this :)
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.
