Wax's earring is a Hemalurgically charged Pathian earring, created from the melted-down spikes of a Steel Inquisitor. It was given to him by the kandra MeLaan. It is small and simple, with a head stamped with ten interlocking rings, the symbol of the Path.
It allows Harmony to communicate with Wax, speaking through Ruin and hearing Wax's thoughts through Preservation. Although the earring is a Hemalurgic spike, it has very little charge and grants practically no abilities.
MeLaan personally delivered the earring to Wax many years before his return to Elendel. He wore it frequently, especially when praying or doing something important, and often touched it while thinking things over. He began to wear it less after finding out it was a Hemalurgic spike and becoming angry at Harmony for letting Lessie die.
In order to take down Paalm, Wax asked Ranette to reforge the earring into a bullet. He shot Paalm with it, delivering a second Hemalurgic spike into her body and allowing Harmony to start taking control of her, though she committed suicide to avoid falling under his control again.
After that, Harmony and the kandra attempted to deliver him a new earring, but he refused to begin wearing one again.
