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.

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 purchased this chain for a pendant I inherited from my late grandmother. I was terrified to keep it on the original chain as it was a very think gold chain and I was very close with my grandma and would be DEVASTATED if I lost her pendant. I got the 16 inch chain. This chain is strong and I feel very secure wearing her pendant on it. It’s 14k gold and this matches very nicely with it. I never take it off and it still looks great after more than 6 months I am very satisfied with this and have referred my sister to buy one here for her pendant she inherited.
I love necklaces but they're not always the most comfortable. This one is so comfy and light that I forget it's on. I wore this one and another chain from Ready Made with the bar pendant for a week long trip in Mexico. I didn't take them off at all and they held up super well to swimming, sweat, and showering and they still look great. I like that this is lightweight but super sturdy and just the right amount of chunky for me. And as always the packaging is great!
The necklace and bracelet I got are great quality, good customer service and great packaging as well! I wear it in the shower and no problems or tarnishing (I’ve only had it for a couple of weeks tho)!! I think it’ll hold up really well. Just one thing to note when ordering is the gold pieces are more on the bronze-y side. Not a typical gold yellow color.
Lovely material, perfect size, super strong... what else could you want in a chain necklace?
As usual, everything I bought from this company is perfect and beautiful. I bought 3 of these rolo chains, and just placed a new order for another one. I don’t take my jewelry off at all when bathing or showering. Nothing has faded. It’s all just perfect. Thank you for making “gold” jewelry so affordable!!!!
Pretty and nice chain
Second time purchasing chains. It's hard wearing and the gold has not fade the regular uses. The only complaint is the ends are pretty big so be aware they a lot of times won't go through pendant bails that are not made by them.
I'm writing this review after owning this chain for about 2-3 years. It's still in great condition and one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. Their customer service is also great. 10/10 will buy again
a little darker in tone than i expected but it holds up well. ive kept it on when i shower and wash my hair for several weeks and have not noticed any color fading or skin irritation.
I’ve worn this every day for more than two months and it looks new. Love Ready-Made and can’t stop buying everything!!
