This earring is inspired by Janus who was considered by the Romans 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." Originally, however, Janus was honored on the first day of every month, in addition to being worshipped at the beginning of planting season and again at the harvest.
This earring is actually two earrings in one! The front of the earring can be worn as a stud that wraps around the ear for a modern faux hoop and then add the back to take it up a notch. The back earring detail is incredibly light and modern.
