General care for my Ready-Made jewelry
While we last longer than traditional jewelry, there are a few things to keep in mind.
General rule of thumb: All pieces are waterproof and chemical resistant, but be mindful of scratches. Refrain from contact with hard and rough surfaces. For this reason, we don’t recommend wearing rings and chains in the shower daily (too much inadvertent contact with loofahs and/or physical exfoliants).
Hand Sanitizer: Yes
Daily Handwashing: Yes
Shower: Mostly yes
Hot Yoga and Gym: No*
*Not tested thoroughly or high exposure to rough contact
Our stones are lab made and function just like mined gemstones. As such, be extra careful when washing hands, and rinse jewelry with clean water after contact with sweat, soaps, and shower gels.
Sensitive SkinI have very sensitive skin prone to rashes. Can I wear Ready-Made?
I have very sensitive skin prone to rashes. Can I wear Ready-Made?
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.
EnvironmentIs Ready-Made environmentally friendly?
Is Ready-Made environmentally friendly?
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.
Safe ManufacturingDoes Ready-Made adopt safe manufacturing practices?
Does Ready-Made adopt safe manufacturing practices?
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.
MaterialsWhy do none of your products use traditional metals like fine gold, sterling silver, or brass?
Why do none of your products use traditional metals like fine gold, sterling silver, or brass?
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.
Benefits of Ready-MadeWhat are the benefits of buying from Ready-Made?
What are the benefits of buying from Ready-Made?
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.
What makes us different
I’m living my Carmela Soprano dream life in this. But, in a cute way? It’s such a fun addition to any stacking look. Best of all, it doesn’t give me a rash! I can’t say enough good things about all of my Ready-Made jewelry!
My mom has not worn jewelry in over 30 years due to being allergic to metal. However I purchased this necklace for her and she has been wearing it 24/7 with no reaction or anything. She loved it so much I bought her a ring too and she is so happy! Thank you for your products!
I have over $1000 worth of Ready-Made jewelry that I’ve purchased over the last couple of years. I love everything they make. I wear my jewelry 24/7. I never take them off and have had no problems with the gold color fading. The only ones that faded a bit are the rings, probably because of constant hand washing and rubbing. The herringbone chain is absolutely gorgeous. I bought one last year as a Christmas gift. So this year I bought 2 more for myself and a Christmas gift.
This necklace is beautiful! I've worn it everyday so far and it's still in perfect condition. Thank you for designing stunning jewelry alternatives!!
ITS BEAUTIFUL!!!! I am buying more chains- I wish it came in 28 or 30 in. But beautiful quality and color- just great- highly recommend
It’s beautiful! I purchased the 16” and I wear it with my 16” Singapore chain. The herringbone is bold and striking to see worn. It makes a statement. It reminds me of a collar chain that Cleopatra would wear. Well worth the money and knowing that it’s durable and can handle temperature issues without turning green is great.
I’m biased since I love all my ready made pieces. I was eyeing the herringbone chain before I finally caved. Worth it. Absolutely amazing quality for the price.
Such a beautiful chain and it sits at the perfect length on my neck right in between my neck and collar bone. I've had it for about a month and it has kept it's color and shine extremely well. Will be buying more jewelry from ready-made!
I’ve been lusting over this chain since it came out and I’m so glad I finally got it. Same amazing quality I expect from all ready made pieces. I’ve been living in this chain!
Amazing value! this necklace has such an amazing shine to it and ive already gotten complements. Showered once and no tarnishing or discoloration. Excited to keep wearing it but wish it was a little longer because it is kind of heavy and sits really low on the neck
