In collaboration with Sharon McMahon of @SharonSaysSo, we are bringing you the hottest charm! The Maxim Charm is engraved with “The words you speak become the house you live in”. Truer words have never been spoken. We interpret this saying to mean that the words that we use to communicate, think to ourselves, and describe our experiences in life build an imaginary “house” or internal place from which we experience, interpret, and define the quality of our entire lives.
Available in 14K Gold Filled and Sterling Silver. The Maxim Charm is 1.25 inches in length.
Because we celebrate making our jewelry by hand here in Texas, some pieces may vary and have their own unique signature!
SUGGESTED RETAIL: $58
Using the best materials sourced by trusted suppliers since 2004.
14K Gold Filled
A layer of solid 14k gold, 100x thicker than plating layers, is permanently bonded using heat and pressure. Gold filled is hypoallergenic, medical grade, nickel free, and heirloom quality. Sweat + even shower in your SB jewelry; gold filled will not wear off and can last a lifetime.
925 Sterling Silver
Sterling silver is an incredibly durable, waterproof + lightweight metal ideal for daily wear. Sterling Silver is nickel free + hypoallergenic.
Vermeil is an incredibly affordable alternative to gold. 925 Silver that is heavily plated with 14K gold. We work with trusted vendors who carefully apply 3-5 microns of gold for the highest quality vermeil (normal plating is .05-1 micron). With proper care, vermeil can last many years without fading and can be re-plated if needed.
14k White Gold
White gold is a mixture of pure gold and white metals (i.e., silver, nickel) topped with a rhodium coating. 14K white gold is the best mixture of durability, price, and longevity and can last many years with proper jewelry care before needing to be re-plated.
14k Yellow Gold
14k gold is the most used gold for jewelry settings. Because of its high percentage of alloy metals, 14k gold is ideal for everyday use! The metals offer more of a resistance to wear and tear, meaning a lifetime of beautiful shine and color.
10k Yellow Gold
The primary advantage to 10K Yellow Gold is its durability. It’s the lowest solid gold used for jewelry and tends to be a paler yellow due to that. Since 10k yellow gold is more alloy than gold, it holds up well to wear and tear and will last you a lifetime with the proper care.
Semi-precious + Precious Stones
We work with a wide variety of stones - from raw cut to certified cut + polished. Due to their organic nature, color, texture + size may vary. All stones are cruelty free.
With proper care your Sarah Briggs Jewelry can last a lifetime! Jewelry should be stored in air-tight containers away from the elements.
Sterling Silver can be polished with a jewelers cloth, silver polishing cloth, and any type of microfiber cloth.
Gold filled jewelry can be cleaned with warm water and mild dish soap. Use a soft cloth to remove any build up or a fine bristle toothbrush for those hard to reach areas.
Vermeil can be gently polished with a soft or microfiber cloth that it untreated with any chemicals (for example, do not use a silver cleaning cloth). For more deep cleaning you can use mild dish soap and warm water but it should not be submerged in the water. Do not use anything abrasive, even a fine bristle tooth brush as this can damage the plating.
