Beautiful vintage French love token, in a crisp rectangular 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.

While this pendant was missing a bail when I acquired it, I have added a simple and clean 10k yellow gold bail - some of the photos are before this was added, but I have included photos with the bail's quality stamp.

• 1.1g, 11.7mm across and 14.5mm tall not including bail
