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 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 purchase this bracelet with a matching anklet 2 years ago, I didn’t want to leave a review just in case they tarnished with time or the gold faded. I can say that the pieces are still in perfect condition. I shower and go to the gym with them and the gold color is still there. Something to take into account is that it might appear a darker gold color compared to 14k or 18k gold if you plan to match them with other pieces. However I think this are great specially for the price!!
I have had the bracelet for about 2 weeks now and I have worn it daily. It is holding up well. I do not have any complaints. The color has not faded which is great.
Delicate bracelet that is a perfect addition to a arm stack. Great quality and good deal
I havent taken this bracelet off in a year and a half and it is still perfect. Literally I have worn it in the shower and beaches and everything and it looks as good as it did the day I got it. I am wearing the silver one and i just cant say enough good things about it. Have been wearing a necklace from here for just as long and it is perfect too xxx
I absolutely love this bracelet! Perfect size and so comfortable that I actually forget I have it on.
I definitely recommend this company for your jewelry needs!
Love this bracelet because it’s the first bracelet to fit my wrists!! Super dainty and amazing quality!
I was excited to receive my new jewelry! The quality was impeccable and better than expected. This if fine jewelry on a new level ... and affordable to everyone!
Love all items I’ve purchased so far. Will continue ordering !
i purchased the oval link bracelet and the curb chain bracelet back in April, have kept them on 99% of the time, and there are absolutely no signs of discoloration or rusting yet. Literally never in my life have I come across silver jewelry that is this beautiful, affordable, and resilient. My bracelets still look absolutely brand new. I also have two ready-made rings and the oval link chain choker, which have been worn in the sweatiest clubs and have gone through the worst nights, and they still look brand new. No signs of wear on the necklace or bracelets at all. I've literally recommended this brand to any friend who will listen. Amazing! Keep it up!!!
I was looking for jewelry that would give me a rash like other metals often do I have very sensitive skin .it’s been two weeks wearing my bracelet and necklace chain and I love it !!! Will be ordering more soon
