This French medal pendant was made by Augis. It weighs 4,7gr and measures 39,02 (1.5')x 28,1 (1,1')x 2 mm (the bale is included in the high). The plus is made in 18kt white gold, set with a diamond and the minus with 3 rectangular synthetic rubies. The medal is signed A.Augis for Alphonse Augis on the right. The medal is adorned with a ravishing airy crown.

It is wrote in French: " + qu'hier - que demain ": "I love you more than I did yesterday and less than I will tomorrow.”

The French saying comes from the verse of the poem wrote by Mrs Rosemonde Gerard to her lover and husband: Edmond Rostand, the famous French writer of Cyrano de Bergerac, a dramatic love play. Alphonse Augis, a French jeweler's from Lyon, made a love medallion with this verse written on it.. There is the eagle's head marked on the bale and we can see the maker's mark on the hinge. It was made in 18kt gold. The back is plain and you could engraved a name on it. This medal is a timeless piece.

The first medals were made from 1907, this one is around 1960. It is in very good vintage condition.
