This necklace is inspired by ancient gatekeepers. In Rome, temples dedicated to Janus were numerous, the most important being known as the Ianus Geminus, a double-gated structure (one door facing the rising sun and the other, the setting sun) found on the Forum Romanum through which the Roman legionaries marched off to battle. This particular temple served a symbolic function. When the gates of the temple were closed, this represented peace within the Roman Empire.
This necklace is adjustable with an extra 6 inches of extension. You may wear it high up on the collar or lower for comfort.
Handmade in Austin, TX by an all female team of makers.
