Recently popularized in the 2010 movie “The Tourist” our Janus Bracelet remains a favorite item in the Gary Dawson Designs collection!  The Sterling Silver version price includes a traditional charm style bracelet of 7 1/4 inches and the 14K version price includes the bracelet depicted in the main product image. For other metal choices a bracelet must be selected as an additional product.  Please note that this version is not customizable and does not come with a gemstone on the back.  If you would like your bracelet personalized with a gemstone, initials, a short phrase or symbol, please see our Janus Bracelet Custom Version here!



This Janus Bracelet features the Roman God Janus, the God of transitions, and therefor of gates, doors, doorways, passages, endings, and beginnings. Janus is depicted as having two faces, looking both to the future and to the past.  A Janus charm on a bracelet was depicted in the 2010 movie (The Tourist) with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie.  The creation story of my hand-carved version of the Janus pendant is told within my blog, here.  It is similar to the one depicted in the movie but not identical.

Janus presided over the beginning and ending of conflict, and hence war and peace. The doors of his temple were open in time of war, and closed to mark the peace. As a god of transitions, he had functions pertaining to birth and to journeys and exchange, and in his association with Portunus, a similar harbor and gateway god, he was concerned with traveling, trading and shipping.

Janus had a ubiquitous presence in religious ceremonies throughout the year, and was ritually invoked at the beginning of each one, regardless of the main deity honored on any particular occasion.

    Beautiful and well made bracelet. I have been wearing it every day since I received it and although it looks dainty it is very sturdy due in part to the lobster clasp and the European like craftsmanship. Aside from the quality however, the customer’s service has been superb. From the minute I placed the order to just after having received my item, the pleasant and personable service exceeded my expectations. I am looking forward to purchasing the gold Janus bracelet very soon among other little treasures on this site.
