We're pleased to present our Gold Janus Ring, available in 9k and 14k. Other variations on request.

Janus, in Roman religion, the animistic spirit of doorways (januae) and archways (jani). Janus and the nymph Camasene were the parents of Tiberinus, whose death in or by the river Albula caused it to be renamed Tiber.
Some regard Janus as the god of all beginnings and believe that his association with doorways is derivative. He was invoked as the first of any gods in regular liturgies. The beginning of the day, month, and year, both calendrical and agricultural, were sacred to him.
The month of January is named for him, and his festival took place on January 9, the Agonium. 

This rare and lustrous metal that has mesmerized humankind for thousands of years, gold is inextricably woven into the fabric of history. Its power, beauty, and allure have fuelled dreams of wealth and shaped the rise and fall of empires.


Crafted by skilled hands, this Gold Janus Ring is a masterpiece of artistry and full of symbolism. All of our rings evoke a sense of both beauty and mortality. As you wear this unique item, it is not only a beautiful piece of jewellery but also a statement. 


Memento mori Rings trace their origins back to ancient times. Therefore societies and cultures across the world embraced the concept of mortality as a central theme. Stemming from Latin, "memento mori" translates to "remember that you must die." This philosophical perspective, often associated with Stoicism, was a reminder of life's impermanence and the inevitability of death.

During the Middle Ages and Renaissance, memento mori motifs flourished in European art, books, and culture. Therefore they aimed to provoke reflection on life's fluid nature, encouraging individuals to live virtuously and mindfully. Hence this sentiment extended to jewellery, with skull rings becoming popular adornments.

However these pieces were not meant to be morbid, but rather reminded to embrace life while acknowledging its finite nature. Memento mori rings to this day continue to endure as potent symbols of introspection and mindfulness, carrying with them the rich history of reflection on human existence.
