Antique French Silver 'Toujours+Jamais-' Ring
An unusual and intriguing ring from the early 20th Century. The ring is made from 900 solid silver and has an intriguing message around the outside. The words read 'Toujours+ Jamais-' meaning 'Always+ Never-' in French. Inside, the words read 'Je Vous Aime', the formal version of 'I love you'. I have never seen another like it. Perhaps it means you are always positive and never negative? Or it is a reference to 'toujours et a jamais' meaning 'always and forever'. The lettering is very beautiful with an Arts and Crafts style and this ring could make a wonderful pinky ring.
