Sweetly Scalloped Vintage French Love Token
A beautiful vintage French love token, with contrasting white gold "+" sign and softly scalloped edge. 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.
