                why not just hammer her band a bit on a mandrel to stretch it to size? No gold lost and you get to do what you're really good at, hammering metal into shape.

                                              Is anyone else vaguely disappointed because Alec and Will would have made the CUTEST COUPLE EVER? No? Just me? Ok.

                                                Just a suggestion and but you should have either made the engagement ring on its one and both wedding bands at the same time or all 3 at the same time. I know it's all symbolic but had you done it that way the wedding bands would have had more of a connection than just being made by you but literally would have been cast from the same metal.

                                                        Leaving it with the hammered finish was the right call. That looks amazing when it's polished.
