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.
If you want a little something to bling up your ankle this would be a super cute piece while being a little guilt free. Works great with layering with other anklets. Very lightweight and never having to worry about taking it off is a huge plus. It is very thin about the size of layering midi ring. Would definitely purchase from this brand again.
Very pleased with this anklet - it’s sturdy, always shiny, and truly a gorgeous design!
So cute and dainty but well made it’s pretty strong and definitely a staple piece
Ready-Made did say that their gold and rose gold items aren’t really recommended for showers..pools..beaches and etc. However, I’m giving this rating 5 stars because it is still lasting after daily wear and I have showered and gone into the pool with it. I risked ut and the outcome was amazing! It still looks fresh and brand new as if I just took it out of the packaging. 100% would recommend Ready-Made products!
Curb Chain Anklet - Gold
Second order and love everything. Great quality.
The anklet is as pictured and goes well with everything. I got the xs/s and it is not too tight or too loose. As much as I would like to never take it off, I do take it off at night and before I get in the shower. The price is so affordable and I plan on purchasing more jewelry from ready-made. The packaging was A+ too.
I love these anklets. Great quality and the customer service at Ready-Made is top notch.
Great quality. I have sensitive skin and cannot wear gold. This is great for my skin and looks beautiful. I have 2 rope chain necklaces in gold from Ready-Made and they're just as great. Looking to get the rope chain bracelet next !
This anklet is amazing. Aesthetically, it's delicate but still eyecatching. Practically, it's incredibly durable. I hate taking off my jewelry, so this anklet has survived barre, ballet, spin, hot yoga, and long runs without any issue. I am THRILLED to have found such an amazing substitute for 14k gold jewelry and intend to buy many more of their pieces in the future.
