Beautiful vintage French love token, in a simple, minimalist version that is thick and sturdy. Created c. 1916 by Alphonse Augis and inspired by a letter poet Rosemonde Gérard wrote to her husband, the writer Edmond Rostand, the pendant features a rebus reading "+ qu'hier - que demain" for the lines,

"Car, vois-tu, chaque jour je t'aime davantage,
Aujourd'hui plus qu'hier et bien moins que demain."

(For, you see, each day I love you more,
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.)

The beautiful sentiment lends itself perfectly to a lover, a child, or a friend - on anniversaries, birthdays, or simply any day. We also love this piece as an engagement ring placeholder for the couple looking to choose a ring together, or a special gift on your wedding day.

These love tokens are widely reproduced and imitated, but the quality of the Maison Augis pendants (always die struck and never cast) have made them a very collectible piece, even after over 100 years of production and many style variations.

Details:
• 18k yellow gold, with French hallmark and Maison Augis trademark
• 16.2mm across
• 2.4g
• Please email after checkout if you wish to purchase a chain as well (chains are new-stock 10k yellow gold curb link, as pictured, in 16", 18", 20", or 22" length for C$125)
