Rosemonde Gérard was a French poet and playwright. She is famous for the couplet below from her poem, “Les Vieux” (“The Old Ones”), that she wrote to her husband in 1889. The phrase became celebrated as an expression of ever-growing love when a Lyons jeweler, Alphonse Augis, had the idea of making a "Medaille d’Amour” (Medal Of Love) with the core portion of the verse engraved on it in 1907.
“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.)
This c.1960s vintage ring has the word “plus” symbolized by a plus sign and “moins” symbolized by a minus sign. Face bears the initials "A.A" for August Augis. There are no hallmarks present but it has been tested as 18k gold. You will receive the pictured ring.
The band width is 2.5mm and the ring face measures 11.4mm high by 9.8mm wide. This ring weighs 3.7g and is a size 9.25. It is sizeable by your jeweler.
