Augis French Plus Qu’Hier Ruby Diamond 18K Yellow Gold Love Charm Pendant

About the Item

A French 18 karat (18K) yellow gold, diamond and ruby love charm pendant with a rebus spelling out "Plus qu'hier, moins que demain" ("More than yesterday, less than tomorrow") - a line taken from the love poem written by Rosemonde Gerard to her husband (the author of Cyrano) in 1889. This is a mid-century example of the tokens created by Alphonse Augis in 1907 in response to the poem, signed A.A. with a "crepe de chine" textured background and floral and laurel wreath border to indicate the triumph of love. The word "plus" is symbolised by a plus sign set with a single-cut white diamond with a total approximate weight of 0.02 carats, and the word "moins" by a minus sign set with two rectangular cut synthetic rubies with a total carat weight of approximately 0.06 carats. Signed A.A., marked ‘Depose’, and stamped with the eagles head for French manufacture and 18 karat gold and Augis’ maker’s mark. Dimensions: 2.3 x 1.9 x 0.18 cm (not including jump ring) Weight: 3.99 grams (Chain not included)
