          That hammered texture is so lovely and badass. If I ever get married and make the rings, I’m definitely doing that.

            glad it turned out well! little tip for the future; don't pour the investment straight down into the flask. try pouring with the flask at an angle, this will help pop bubbles in the investment as it pours down. of course, it came out fine this time. but just to think about for the future!

                                    I'm surprised your ring isn't made with damascus steel instead of gold...or maybe damascus gold? haha

                                          These are absolutely stunning pieces of art! Very well done, there's nothing more special than hand made personal touches.

                                          That being said, please, Please, PLEASE! be careful when working in the shop! Those metal rings can get caught and tear your finger up. Rubber/silicone rings with great for this!

                                            I love the hammered finish on the ring. I think it gives a lot of character to the ring as you are a blacksmith.

For what you do... as just my personal experience I’ve seen that it might get to be almost impossible and that might be a reason not being married 😂 but hey never let that to happen mate!!

                                                                                          I wish for you and your soon to be wife to have a relationship stronger than any Damascus you’ve forged

Why not create a much larger investment cast with a bowl at the top and let the metals melt slowly into place in the oven?
