Vintage 18K Gold & Sterling Silver Ring by Aaron Macsai
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1990 or so
ITEM: From the hands of Aaron Macsai of Morton Grove, Ill., here's a fabulous silver and gold ring or wedding band featuring a unique design all around the piece. The ring comes in its original black velvet box and Aaron Macsai cardboard box.
CONDITION: Very nice though it appears a light polish is in order.
METAL CONTENT: 18K Gold and Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: None. There's a circular mark on the inside of the ring but it looks to me like a shadowed test mark. I have gently tested both sections of the ring and the content of the ring is correct. Also, in checking the Macsai website, Mr. Macsai uses only 18K and Sterling in his creations.
SIZE: On my sizer, the ring measures 7-1/4. Width of the ring is 3/8" north/south.
WEIGHT: 9.9 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: If you check the Internet you will see that Mr. Macsai shows at the finest arts & craft shows in the nation and that his work is mostly one of a kind. The ring on offer now is an early piece of his work purchased at an estate sale. According to the estate agent, it originally retailed at $850. If you are a fan of Mr. Macsai's work, then here's a wonderful piece to add to your collection.
AARON MACSAI: From the web... "I began making jewelry in 1968, when I was 13 and broke my leg two years in a row playing soccer. I needed something to do with my hands and I discovered the world of jewelry. It has been my true passion ever since. I like the hands-on approach of manipulating metal and the precision it requires. Mastering old techniques and learning new ones has been a dedicated, lifelong process of growth. I primarily use 18K gold because of the soft and subtle colors I can create, especially if I alloy it myself. I am also fascinated by marriage-of-metal and I have spent most of my career developing and refining what I call, “Pattern metal”. It is a process of combining cross section slices of the patterns I create in silver and copper with elements of 18K gold."
