Plus Qu'hier / More Every Day Ring

Description

This puzzle ring reads "Plus qu'hier, moins que demain," which translates to "More than yesterday, less than tomorrow." The phrase is loosely used in french to mean "I love you more every day," and was inspired by a line from a poem by 19th century playwright Rosemonde Gérard which reads "For, you see, each day I love you more/Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow." Published in 1890, the work didn't become popular until 1907, when Alphonse Augis, a French jeweler, began making medallions with this excerpt engraved on them. This example, where the words are replaced by + and - signs, is the most popular.
