with modern, unexpected jewelry.
WWAKE doesn't just create amazing and unconventional heirloom pieces. The team also designs sustainably with Fairmined gold and supports fair market prices and pay.
Inspired by the tradition of art breaking with convention, WWAKE offers a new perspective on heirloom jewelry with unexpected arrangements and modern silhouettes.
The pieces are defined by their signature contour shapes and light stone arrangements. The WWAKE team crafts all jewelry in New York with the highest-quality materials and conflict-free diamonds.
