This is the last petit French love token in inventory. It is one of the finest expressions of love and was conceived as a translation of the poem "The Eternal Son" written in 1889 by Louise Rose Etiennette Gerard, known as Rosemonde Gerard, a poet and playwright. She wrote, "Car, vois-tu, chaque jour je t'aime davantage, Aujourd hui plus qui'hier et bien moins que demain." The English translation of the couplet is "For you see, each day I love you more today than yesterday and less than tomorrow."
This pendant circa 1960, was designed by the French jewelry firm A. Augis and signed on the front, is an artistic expression of the poem.
