Beautiful vintage French love token, in a a very rare personalized ring version. Created 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 as the standalone engagement ring itself!), or a special gift on your wedding day.

This particular token has been engraved on the back side of the disc - "René à Maryse 1-1-66" - and, we suspect at a later date, set upon a custom made basket and shank to be worn as a ring. We can't get enough of this special piece of history!
