Janus was the god of beginnings and transitions in Roman mythology, and presided over passages, doors, gates and endings, as well as in transitional periods such as from war to peace. As a god of beginnings and transitions both in literal and abstract ways, Janus was also responsible for motion, changes, and time. He was usually depicted as having two faces looking at opposite ways, one towards the past and the other towards the future.

CARE: Most metals will naturally patina over time, however, there are measures you can take to prolong the life of your jewelry. We recommend removing all jewelry prior to showering, swimming, cleaning, or applying lotions or oils. If your jewelry begins to appear a dull or darkened, it can be gently polished with a soft jewelry cloth like Sunshine, with a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner, or a natural dish soap and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Storing in an air-tight container will prolong the life of your jewelry, and protect it from environmental tarnish.Mountainside is a women-owned business based in Santa Cruz, CA.
