Beautiful vintage French love token, in a perfectly-proportioned 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 a special gift on your wedding day.

This ring is possibly a conversion, with a custom ring mount built for the token. It is in good vintage condition, and the most comfortable and wearable ring version we've come across - slim, low profile, and perfect for every day. Minor evidence of resizing (along with thinning in the back), and wear to the face and shoulders.
