Wing Yau is a New York-based designer born in the Pacific Northwest with a background in sculpture at Rhode Island School of Design. Yau developed WWAKE in 2012 with the intention of merging art with the intimacy of jewelry. With a thoughtful balance of tension & scale, WWAKE re-contextualizes jewelry into unexpected arrangements and modern silhouettes.

The brand is ever-experimenting with the boundaries of traditional jewelry, and offers a new perspective on heirloom jewelry. WWAKE is crafted in New York with the finest quality materials and conflict-free diamonds, and has been worn by celebrities such as Rihanna, Cate Blanchett, and Emma Watson.
