This necklace is inspired by the Roman god of doorways.
In his role as the Guardian of Exits and Entrances, Janus was also believed to represent beginnings because one must emerge through a door or gate in order to enter into a new place. Therefore, the Romans also considered Janus as the God of Beginnings and his name was an obvious choice for the first month of their year...a month referred to by the Ancient Romans as Ianuarius, which is not so far removed from the modern-day "January," taken from the Etruscan word jauna which means "door."
This necklace is on a 30 inch chain and sits right below the breast on most bodies.
