The Cut’s Advent Calendar Gift Guide: Counting down to Christmas with one guaranteed-to-please gift idea every day.

After a summer of weighing down my earlobes with elaborate, oversize earrings, I need a palate cleanser. In my search, I was drawn to these beauties from Wwake. They’re small, but they have so many pretty details, like the imperfect circular shape and the way the prongs around the diamonds look like they were formed by hand and not machine.

I also love the earrings because of the brand. Wwake crafts its jewelry in New York, but designer Wing Yau carefully selects her product chains around the world and uses only conflict-free diamonds. Nothing sells me faster than ethical production in tandem with good style.
