Vintage French“Plus qu’hier, moins que demain” Ring



Antique jewelry collectors will instantly recognize this "PLUS (+) QU'HIER MOINS (-) QUE DEMAIN" love token medallion, signed by its original creator Alphonse Augis. It's based on a poem by Rosemonde Gérard from 1889: "Car, vois-tu, chaque jour je t’aime davantage, Aujourd’hui plus qu’hier et bien moins que demain," which translates as "For, you see, each day I love you more, Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow." We've never seen a ring version before!
