  • LOOKING AHEAD TO THE NEW YEAR: What to remember, what to forget!

    Victoria Thomas

    The month of January is named for the Roman god, Janus, who is literally two-faced. Janus was the god of doors, gates and transitions, and he ruled over all new beginnings including births, planting, and the start of the new year. His double-faced head appeared on the first Roman coins, and his image is always an indicator of good things to come. This can only mean one thing: more precious gem jewelry in 2021!
