One of the most romantic pieces to gift, this French 18ct Gold Augis love token heart locket is just the sweetest. The locket reads ' Aujourd'hui plus qu’hier, moins que demain' which is a segment from Rosemonde Gérard's love poem to her husband, translating to 'I love you today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.'
This sliding locket has been crafted from fine French 18ct Gold, boasting both an olive and holly branch extending along either side of the locket door and comes complete with sparkly rose-cut Diamonds.
Sliding the locket door to the left reveals an empty locket frame, which you can fill with a photo of a person special to you. We can't imagine a better way to show someone you care than this antique Gold heart locket.

VERY GOOD. This French 18ct Gold Augis love token heart locket is in very good condition. The Gold is bright and buttery, and there are only some minor surface dings on the back. The Diamonds are all secure in place, although we think two of the Diamonds have been replaced, which are slightly lighter in colour, but we think this adds some antique charm to the piece! The locket door slides clockwise to the left, and clicks securely. The inside of the locket has a frame on the inside, so your photo will be safe! This is a lovely piece which will hang beautifully from a Gold chain.
