    you have such talent Brotha! we are hoping to make our wedding bands this fall!!

  2. pvt. Pile says:

    It is so awsome that you are able to make all the Rings, I can imagine your wife telling your children and grandchildren, Alex made these rings with love.

    The hammered finish is such a nice touch, it is your personality and passion made in to a physical object that you will share together.

  3. Stephanie Ruggles says:

    What an honour to have the skills to make your own wedding rings. I wish you all the best for you starting your own little family. Will keep following you though. Stay healthy and take care.

  4. Neo Ciotti says:

    bruh did anyone think that at the beginning of the wedding ring video he was going to make the ring out of that green stuff.

  5. Azam Khan says:

    Damascus gold?

  8. Eddie says:

    Allow this comment as a belated CONGRATULATIONS to you and your beautiful bride! May your life together be full of love, joy and success. May the Lords blessings be upon you!

  9. Vera DJ says:

    Oh they look amazing! And you’re right, the impact dents of the hammer make it look that much more special. Awesome work 🙂 Congratulations again ^_^

    Most expensive vacuum cleaning bag in the world

  12. Mr. Goopie says:

    Congrats boiiii

  13. eagle21scout says:

    That was cool! Many happy years to you both.

  14. Belinda says:

    is nobody going to talk about his a$$ (time stamp 10:14)

  15. Equus Pallidus says:

    Get you an expanding mandrel and a leather hammer. pour your gold ring a little wider than it needs to be and a little smaller in diameter. Use the leather hammer to smack it down a little ways on the mandrel and then put it on the expanding mandrel and stretch it. Then back to the regular mandrel for a little further beat down. Rinse and repeat until it is sized for you. You can actually use a gold coin to do this and polish all the coin markings off until smooth like a band. Saves a lot of time with the wax and the ring will be at least 18 karat.

  16. thirrteen says:

    Way cool. Job well done.

  17. TJW595 says:

    Imagine 75 years from now their great grandchildren are getting married and they get handed these and when they ask where they came from, their parents can tell them “Your greatgrandpa made them” and imagine that look of awe on their face. Beautiful works of art, amazing metallurgy, and filled with love. Amazing job Alec.

  18. TheGreatWarrior123 says:

    Make Sauron’s Ring

  19. Travis Campbell says:

    Very cool. Congrats to you both!

  20. NitroGamingHD says:

    He needs to invest in a lathe for this stuff, even a small cheap one would work

  21. Luke Paden says:

    Congratulations to you and yours and thanks a ton! Been trying to learn how to make wedding rings and this video has been the most help by far.

  22. Duffy Unknown says:

    That hammered finish looks nice! 👍 👌🏿

  23. Duffy Unknown says:

    Sometimes I wish I was English so I could use words like brilliant and not sound like a Nincompoop

  24. epeterson40 says:

    When do we get to meet her??

  25. Raymond J says:

    dude you should get a julers lathe !

  26. Bigbadscar says:

    Who the hell dislikes a video like this!? *SpongeBob caveman face*

  27. The_Kansas_Kid says:

    Congradulations! I want to make a nice ring for my gf, but I don’t know how to mount gemstones or how much gold or silver to use. I’ve only ever made rings from coins, but what are some tools that could help me make a nice ring? Casting the ring isn’t an option for me.

  28. carolbuzelim says:

    You sound so adorable talking about your family 😍😍

  29. L B says:

    Do you have a sponsor for the accent as well? Everything else is… Love your work but sponsoring everything is douchy.

  30. The Pilot Penguin says:

    Alec is only like 2 years older than me and he makes me wonder what am I even doing with my life 😳☹️

  31. intensity digital says:

    isn’t making a ring out of pure gold kind of dangerous? I’m not an expert but from what I’ve herd, since gold is soft it will bend instead of snap if crushed and can cut off circulation to the finger.

  32. Joey isamazing says:

    Congrats man

  33. 20somthingdrifter11 says:

    Alec Steele – Blacksmith, Sword Smith, Goldsmith… yeah you want this guy on your Zombie team.

  34. The Bean says:

    Aw man what I would give to have all those tools to make my own custom jewelry all the time

  35. shawn Jackson says:

    All I saw was 15 min of your face and you running your mouth. And ring making.

  36. Martin Coatham says:

    Do you Hall Mark the gold yourself?

  37. gunnar koksnase says:

    just for all the guys out there who want to try this too u dont need to have all this fancy equipment to make those rings…

  38. J H says:

    I really hope hes catching all the shavings…

  39. LegendSlayer77 says:

    Everyone: excited for him

    Me: …. I hope he’s recollecting those gold shavings

    • Mr Chittychad says:

      Theres tons of people who keep saying that. Of course he’s collecting the shavings! its like nobody is allowed to make gold jewelry because people only care about money.

  40. RUSH & CO. says:

    Might not have shown her but at least we know he didn’t land himself a Fat girl!

  41. lemon and lime says:

    Na stop flexing those airpodz

  42. omarstreisand says:

    Alec saludos desde México me encantan tua videos la paso muy bien… Te recomiendo a pablo cimadevila

  43. MTB Thiccness says:

    Woah alex actually has a THICC booty

  44. John Benjamin Tatum says:

    Congratulations to you and Will.

  45. hanneskr97 says:

    watch out with the investments

    they contain silicates (most of them) and are bad for your lungs

    better wear masks while working with them

  46. Gyrocompa says:

    Come on guy, you are handsome and skillful enough not to need so much slow-motion !

    And now that we have watched 6 minutes of engagement ring and 16 minutes of wedding bands, at least please show us a photo of your fiancée wearing them !!

    By the way, congratulations and best wishes to your couple !

  47. Peter Babjak says:

    I am so happy watching this … wow I love watching Alec being happy and making something for him and his wife, it is so clear how happy he is.

  48. Marvin Moncevais says:

    Way to go brother!! Congrats and many blessings!

  49. Michelle Mckee says:

    AWESOME job on the wedding bands, man!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!🥂

  50. EngineerSean YouTube says:

    You are using a file to shape your fiance’s ring. Very wasteful considering the price of gold. Better to cast it much closer to the final dimensions (also considering shrinkage during cooling from molten to solid) and then just be able to polish to a final finish.

  51. Nolan Peters says:

    these videos are the only confirmation that you and will aren’t lovers

  52. Priyanka M says:

    He got me at “diviiiider”

  53. Jacob D. Williams says:

    Great job on the rings however you really should have a tray to catch gold when you’re filing.

  54. Nib-Na5ty says:

    God it doesnt look like he is saving any of the gold

  55. Emil Nielsen says:

    That Hammerd finnish is beautiful

  56. Bennett Harris says:

    We are not a socialist state. We won’t every really have freedom thing function and we are America. America is not socialist

  57. Bennett Harris says:

    Vote for trump

  58. MrKeueR says:

    Really happy for you and your future wife !
    Contrats to both of you !

  59. Micheal McKenzie says:

    Every time I hear him say investment I think hes talking about the gold

  60. AaronP11 says:

    He always makes the ring by casting it but I see other Jewelers on YouTube make it by twisting a line of metal around a steel round bar and then cut it.

  61. Robert Robbins says:

    Very nice bands!

  62. Robert Robbins says:

    It’s not failure, he just found 1,000 ways how not to make a light bulb….. Nicholas Cage quoting Alexander Gragham Bell in the movie “National Treasure”

  63. StarOfFire says:

    13:50

    it looks SOOO amazing. I just can say one: breathtaking.

  64. Christopher McSwain says:

    Dude, you did amazing work.

  65. Waldemar says:

    This lost wax technique reminds me a lot of how my dental lab technicians make old school PFM crowns.

  66. MMALifee says:

    When making bars for implant dentures the investment is mixed in a vacuum mixer, not cheap but it makes really nice investments.

  67. Ramon Huijgen says:

    you have a lucky ladie

  68. Gerard Murphy says:

    Hats off to you Alec , that’s cool as hell making your own wedding bands ,
    Hope you and your fiancé are very happy together 👍🏽
    Good work

  69. Bros Numeral Dos says:

  70. Dark Pone says:

    “This one goes on…it doesn’t really want to come off.”
    HINT; that’s the one.

  81. LOLSflint says:

  82. Conor Court says:

    That hammered finish is incredible. Well done.

  83. WhyEmptyVoid says:

    Just had to flex those air pods huh !

  84. Migdhadh Mohamed says:

    Good for you mate. Good luck both of ye.

  85. jesus Garay says:

    Show me the girl

  86. DaPinkBublé says:

    the hammer finish does look dope. thats gold i would wear and i hate gold.

  87. twostroke350 says:

    Try a kitchen microplane (like you use for parmesan cheese) for reducing wax volume. Never clogs, removes a lot of material quickly but in a very controlled manner.

  88. twostroke350 says:

    My wifes wedding band was left with the final hammer marks too. As time goes on, they will gradually wear smooth to a perfectly smooth, polished band. Takes about 7 years. There may be some symbolism about starting off with many facets and working towards a perfect finish in there somewhere?

    Incidentally, the master goldsmith Ken Moffat who made our wedding bands, also pattern welds GOLD DAMASCUS rings… Just saying.

  89. Supabear says:

    @Alec Steele if you didn’t beat it with a hammer it wouldn’t be yours lol. Very Nice Bro

  90. a s says:

    lol you’re now in my backyard

  91. Mike Stemp says:

    You guys are F-ing dope!

  92. Abby Babby says:

    Just don’t wear your ring while working. To easy to de-glove your finger, seen it happen a lot. If you have to wear a ring get a rubber one the will rip off and not jerk your finger off. Congratulations by the way.

  93. Robert Garza says:

    A little late. Congrats to you and your fiancé Alec! Having fun binge watching your channel. Keep up the great work brother. Keep hammering.

  94. B Norton says:

    Really stunning work man!

  95. fenderplayer946 says:

    looks beautiful on her finger… waves it past the camera on his hand… brilliant haha!

  96. hennelly irvin says:

    Made rings of my own using this video and dental lab equipment! Great video

  97. Tobie Koster says:

    when did Michael McIntyre start making jewellery? 😉

  98. x X_Twisted_X x says:

    Congratulations

  99. achelan says:

    Since copper has a similar melting point to gold, is it a good way to practice?

  100. Michael Rave says:

    Those rings are amazing congratulations

  101. Arif Iqbal says:

    Congrats brother.

  102. Amin says:

    Congrats mate

  103. audiobrew says:

    Wow. “Third time’s a charm” instead of “third time lucky”. Get this man his US citizenship papers!

  104. Xavier Rodriguez says:

    Congrats

  105. bernain molina says:

    Let me tell you something even though ur not American originally you have that can do work attitude my friend

  106. Ze Shitten Mother says:

    The lost wax method is thousands of years old though….

  107. Benkay V Falsifier says:

    2:23 I could never wear a ring. I have one of those fingers that have large knuckles and small base so anything that fit my knuckles would be loose on my finger and any smaller would NEVER come off.

  108. toxiccomando says:

    Jewelry stores hate him. Click here to learn his secret.

  109. Martin Rugroden says:

    What a coincidence that the commercial for this episode was by Pampers.

  110. Chris Pennington says:

    Love the videos what happened to your finger grinding without gloves?

  111. Sam just sam says:

    Congrats man

  112. weareewancameron says:

    what a donk

  113. Michel Jubran says:

    Congrats! Love the hammer finish !

  114. Billy Guthrie says:

    You deserve it you seam to be a nice driven guy. I am happy for you take care and forge your futures together.

  115. Putup Orshutup says:

    You should glue some rubber tips on that little V devise you cut and file your rings on. Or better yet go to the local Walmart, in the paint section you will find rubber dip for tolls. Enough said

  116. Brendan Allison says:

    “That is sooooo satisfying” -Alec Steele while shoving a rod through a hole that’s too small. Yikes.

  117. TWH says:

    Looks great man! Impressive

  118. Ruben Romero says:

    why is this man so THIC

  119. John Hyslop says:

    so Alec…when do we get to see her working the forge?

  120. Tyhesheia Allen says:

    Your talent awe me , your going to be flithy rich you should go into business being your own boss making all sorts of custom design rings for people somebody is going to pick you up and make you rich that is your blessing

  121. m y s t i c says:

    cute

  122. Nick Heigl says:

    im lonely

  123. Wander Lost says:

    I want a custom made band to propose to my girlfriend . Send me a message and give me prices.

  124. Fil Stewart says:

    Something in my eye – how wonderful and moving to see you making your own rings…Good for you. 🙂

  125. Ryanrulesok says:

    You get engaged and then a month later you think of getting married. Isn’t your relationship going too fast?

  126. Dingo Jo says:

    CONGRATULATIONS ALEC!! :DDDD

  127. Castro DallasTX says:

    Amazing

  128. Albrat Gaming says:

    for a clogged file.. the best solution to clear it is a wire brush. 45 degree angle strokes from both sides of the file… Nicely cleans the file out of wood or wax…

    I think the hammered finish makes it so fitting for you and a Awesome pair of custom rings. Lovingly made by yourself. Means so much more than a shop bought ring.

  129. Jesse says:

    Pro tip on wax. You have to pour it as soon as it melts. You wait too long it just burns the crud out of you. :p (Honeymoon tip)

  130. ITAGER-DNA says:

    a lot of pablo cimadevila stile songs . i like !

  131. dl200010 says:

    That hammered finish is amazing! Especially with you being a Black Smith.

  132. gavendb says:

    Hammer Potter

  133. BigolJoe says:

    I love how giddy he was in this.

    So happy for you two Alec!

  134. s vernon says:

    wishing you both all the happiness you wish to have .. Slainte mhath .

  135. s vernon says:

    is Will the ring boy ?

  136. s vernon says:

    hey Alex, bunch of us out here were wondering if our invites got lost …

  137. Beren Valari says:

    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.

  138. MoonieLu says:

    plot twist: he’s marrying himself

  139. Creating Julie Silversmyth says:

    Such a fancy accent! Love it!

  140. Mike McKeen says:

    Smart lad. Figured out the easiest way to stay in America is to get wifed up.

  141. Julien Napoli says:

    Hammered finish looks fabulous! good job Alec and best whishes

  142. Nope Noway says:

    She must be very shy, as no one has seen her. Tho opposites attract.

  143. Rick Knight says:

    Brilliant

  144. muhy3 says:

    Surprised he didn’t stretch this out to 23 episodes.

  145. Jacob Lavery says:

    You look 12

  146. Carianin 52 says:

    Alec, you are an amazing talent. Just 21 and you have mastered so many skills.

  147. Emr0ck says:

    Very happy for you !

  148. melissa darling says:

    crush: hi.
    me: making wedding bands🙂

  149. Joshua Morang says:

    Amazing workmanship as always beautiful work and congratulations.

  150. rymdalkis says:

    I’m so happy for you and Will

  151. Vulpea_Secolului_20 says:

    you should go to forged in fire

  152. grovermatic says:

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

  153. Matthew Fortune says:

    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.

  154. Katherine Koning says:

    Congratulations!!!!! I’m so happy for you guys!!! Also…
    _WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR FINGER?!_

  155. Huzaifa Ibrahim says:

    It is good to see you so happy about it

  156. The Distracted Maker says:

    That hammered finish looks amazing, well done!

  157. Tacet says:

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

  158. Taelend Sauve says:

    That hammered look on your ring is super cool

  159. Kyle Boren says:

    Congratulations Alec!!! And beautiful work as always.

  160. Levi Swang says:

    Congratulations on the engagement sir!

  161. Personamedaniel says:

    2:41 how do you do that whistle I’ve been trying to learn it for years 💀💀

  162. Psyrus says:

    Perhaps a silly question, but why would you conduct the burnout with the hole facing downwards? Would not the – now thoroughly carbonized – residue from the burning wax collect and adhere to the “ceiling” of the mold?

  163. Binary Bug says:

    You sound, and gesture like Michael McIntyre.

  164. nathan moorefield says:

    Bro you’re awesome!!

  165. Yanir Govrin says:

    Isn’t your ring a little soft if it’s just gold? In my highschool material science class I cast a ring with Sterling silver and it was cool

  166. James Dennett says:

    The hammered finish on yours is genius, obvious and utterly beautiful.

  167. B Fett says:

    congrats man!!

  168. scoobtoober29 says:

    Put a covering on that gaping wound you nut job.

  169. Gussyboi says:

    I’m from Montana!! Bro so sick

  170. Clara Does Nothing says:

    I wish I had the skills to make them for my man.

  171. tk says:

    Hammered finish is cool as hell.

  172. SCUMBAG KYLER says:

    You need to make and sell these I’ve been with my girlfriend for 6 years now and I’ve been looking for the perfect ring and that beautiful hammered finish looks like it was ripped from a Vikings grave I need these rings

  173. Onno L says:

    The music is like Tristram from Diablo1

  174. Good and Basic says:

    Congratulations! JB

  175. Kyle says:

    Alec please get a skin for your bench. Collect your Lemel!

  176. CessnaacePVP says:

    Well congratulations again to both of you!

    Been with you since 10k and very cool to see all you’ve done.

  177. Karel Rode says:

    First the Engagement ring, then the Wedding ring. Next the suffering.

  178. Weston Wilson says:

    Start selling this stuff!

  179. Its Skum Life says:

    Will’s manicure looks good. Gratz you two.

  180. Dieselmachine4 says:

    Congratulations brother. I wish you, and the future Mrs.Steele all the best. Be her inspiration, but let her be yours as well. Much love to the both of you.

  181. Rob Rakay says:

    great look nice job

  182. Rowan Wagner says:

    He is very sweet but can he calm down a bit

  183. incognito burrito says:

    Who is she!?!?

  184. Helveteshit says:

    The fact, there isn’t a tray under the working surface for jewellery is mind boggling to me. Why not try collect all the gold dust etcetera?! You can make a tray similar to a keyboard table. Something you pull out once seated. To collect all the golden dust. Over time, it will surely collect into quite a chunk of metal in gram.

  185. Lewisseacadet Can't tell you says:

    Wedding ring

  186. stressly says:

    Congrats Alex

  187. Noe R says:

    Did I miss the proposal?
    Did she love the rings?

  188. Susan Joyner Snodgrass says:

    When do we get to meet your future wife?

  189. Joe Duke says:

    Why not 3D print the ring, then lost wax cast it, near net shape?

  190. Silver Gryffin says:

    Amazing. Totally love the idea and effort of making your own engagement and wedding rings. Honestly I am happy jealous. This has been a bit of a romantic dream of mine for about 15 years to happen to me when I get proposed.

  191. Gideon Larum says:

    so happy for y’all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  192. VOLHans says:

    Wow, Will is one lucky lad!

  193. Brad Turner says:

    Silly question, admittedly I know nothing about this skill set, can you make a white and yellow gold damascus?

  194. Gus Gould says:

    I bloody loved this video it’s more like the OG Alec Steele videos

  195. Matt Johnson says:

    The hammered finish looks nice, and it’s apropos for your work. Congrats on the pending nuptuals!

  196. J C says:

    Looks easy. I’ll make mine tomorrow on lunch brake lol. Congratulations on your engagement mayGod keep you both.

  197. L M says:

    I see custom jewelry making in your future. Enjoy the ride.

  198. ringdingading says:

    My husband and I made each others wedding rings. We found a little goldsmith who would instruct us and provide us with tools. It was sooo much fun 🙂

    • Andreas Halemba says:

      we did so too. but we did use some gold strips and bend them and sodered the ends. Was quite a different approach than he did.
      Also in Germany there is a saying you should not make your own rings.

    • grovermatic says:

      Nice! What a charming idea. 🙂

  199. Fergus Dunlop says:

    the chronicles of alec changing from a blacksmith to a jeweler.

  200. Bailey Louque says:

    the music in your videos are always amazing

  201. TonicJuice says:

    ring or BAND?

  202. chewtoy99 says:

    Thought you are a blacksmith?

  203. Liam G says:

    Congrats Alec!

  204. Mr Nohbdy says:

    A hammered finish carries a little more meaning when you or your significant other is the one who hammered it.

  205. Viola Helmgaard says:

    8:39 I hope all that gold dust is being used again or is it just going on the ground and in the vacuum!???

  206. Duy Tùng Phạm says:

    I’m glad that Will said “yes”

    Something you forgot to mention about the kiln burnout is the third and most important purpose for it. That is that it bakes the investment to force out any moisture still inside. Otherwise the water, even at a tiny scale, will turn to steam when you pour and will fire molten metal back at you or even explode.

    I met those laughing, fierce hazel eyes. Cassian’s smile softened. “Hello, Feyre.” My throat tightened to the point of pain, and I threw my arms around his neck, embracing him tightly. “I missed you, too,” Cassian murmured, squeezing me.
    When, in the street, I see a mother walking with her grown-up daughter, I can hardly bear to witness the mother’s pride, the softening of her face, her incredulous joy at being granted her daughter’s company; and the iron discipline she imposes on herself, to muffle and conceal this joy.

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

  241. Aaron Mohs-Hale says:

    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!

    Alec i had my rings made out of tungsten. Maily because im a mechanic and dont want it getting damaged

    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!

  257. Æ BeakedPath says:

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

    Hey Alec after almost 18 years I have lost my wedding band how much did it cost you in gold? I am looking for a new band and have made a ring in the past but am curious about how much you spent in gold?

    • Joseph Remington says:

      Depending on the carat 30-45$ a gram. He mentioned he had a 21 gram ring so anywhere from 650 to nearly a grand in gold value alone.

  272. chiraz amrane says:

    I loved the hammer look

  273. Droggelbecher ! says:

    out of curiosity: why not use a centre lathe?

  281. GoldenWither101 says:

    It’s poetic in the way in which you left the rings in a hammered finish, showing that you legitimately forged the relationship between the two of you and how there may have been bumps along the way, and by work hardening the rings you’ve shown that you and her are in it for the long haul and you have become strong together, never being able to be broken because you know you have each other.

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

    Sorry for the puns but I truly mean it
    Love ya man

  282. Philip L says:

    Regarding Lost Wax casting, I’ve always wondered. Why does the metal need to be poured? 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?

  283. Big Boss says:

    Shame. Watched almost 10 minutes of video and was starting to think Alec had finally gotten rid of Will. Unwatchable.

    I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.
    We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.

    All the best from Switzerland!

  301. Rusty Barnes says:

    Alec, you should consider buying a silicone ring for yourself, and use it as your daily wear ring. For special occasions the gold is proper, but the metal band can get you into trouble in an industrial setting.

  302. Darin Roodman says:

    Took a while to get a chance to watch this. Mazel tov, wonderful news! She’s a lucky girl! Congrats congrats! Your folks must be thrilled! Is she from the US or the UK?

    Congratulations, Alec & fiancee! Wishing many, many years of married bliss. Alec, I never thought I would see you looking SO happy, you’re already one of those annoying “morning people”, let’s not take this all too far, okay? Please accept my congrat’s, and to your fiancee as well. Will we be seeing her featuring on your channel soon?

  344. J.D. Stone says:

    Alec, I know this comment is a couple of days late but I’d like to share some wisdom that was given to my wife and I.

    Men and women speak completely different languages, and one of the best things you can do for your marriage is learn her language. Guys typically want to fix things, do things, achieve goals. We are run by the question ‘can I do it?’

    Women are run by emotions, their question is ‘am I loved?’

    So when she comes home from a rough day at work and is upset about how someone treated her, don’t offer to fix the problem because she doesn’t want you to fix it, she just wants you to listen and provide emotional support!

    Future Misses Steele, the same is true for you. Alec speaks an entirely different language than you do even if you don’t realize it! The best thing you can do is try to learn his language while he tries to learn yours!

    One more thing and I’m done. Always, always, ALWAYS be willing to talk to each other! One day your spouse is going to do or say something that hurts you, don’t just blow it off. They might not realize they hurt you and if they don’t know it’ll happen again and again. Calmly and gently talk to each other about your hurts. And if you don’t want to say something in anger let them know you want to talk but you need time to cool down.

    My wife and I have been married for just 2 and a half years, but this advice has helped in many many ways!

    I wish you both many years of happiness!

  345. Mash Rien says:

    So when do we get to see you and Will wearing the rings together? I bet he looks good with a diamond on his finger, and I guess you must’ve liked it 😉

  395. John McGough says:

    Do we get to meet the lucky lady?

  396. Earthenfist says:

    Alec, why are you using a chasing hammer on your ring? Those are meant for chasing tools, and so have a soft face that gets marked up by the steel tools they hit. You want a planishing or cross-peen jewelry hammer (something between 5 to 20 ounces depending on personal preference) with a mirror-finish face. That way you’re not leaving little nicks and bumps on the surface of the soft metal, from the imprint of the face.

    Would it be possible to make a Damascus Steel Ring? I made my fiancee’s ring from silver and Tanzanite I picked up personally from my trip to Tanzania. I don’t want a traditional Golden Wedding band and I absolutely love watching these videos of making Damascus Steel. I don’t have the equipment to try it out for myself unfortunately. What is your take comments and Alec Steele?

  401. Jack Parker says:

    Nice one mate Congrates!

  407. Zulfikran Zulmos says:

    Congrats Alec!!!

  408. ottoe57 says:

    While I was watching the hammer work on the ring I thought “Man, that looks really cool. How cool would that be if he just left the hammer marks in it.” And two seconds later Alec said the same thing. I am glad that he left them. The rings look great. Nice work

  409. Christine Sorrento says:

    Did you know that the wedding rings come from a western mindset? The Hebrew wedding ring is a nostril ring – Genesis 24/Ezekiel 16

  410. Adam Carlisle says:

    this man is about to seal the deal on the chin-breaker-2000 bed

  411. bokytobl says:

    Very nice story, Alec. You made yourself an awesome lookin’ ring, man.

  412. Bronson Stephens says:

    That’s awesome Alec! I wanna do this someday

  413. Michael Brailsford says:

    Congratulations!

  414. Corbin Musso says:

    Ok Sauron…we know it’s you now…

  415. Samuel Lipscomb says:

    Absolutely phenomenal build and many times congrats. I hope your relationship always grows and Blossoms.

  416. Anon archist says:

    how is it possible that your fingers are smaller than mine? 3 crushed rings and my current wedding band is tattooed on.

  417. Henry Viera says:

    Congrats man

  418. M.E. T says:

    awesome build….When do we get to meet your bride?

  419. tom martin says:

    what is a wedding band

  420. Pufulete Puiut says:

    the question is, why choose to cast it if it’s a basic wedding band? as it would be much easier and more controllable if you would have cast an ingot and work from that on the mill

  421. Henry Levy says:

    hammer finish was the right choice mate. looks great.

  422. Michael Mosseri says:

    I think you may know this but just making sure you know you can 3r print in some material that it will melt out just like the wax. I believe presstube used to use this

  423. Shayan Givehchian says:

    Do you collect the gold dust that you file off ?

  424. Joe Williams says:

    I like that you went traditional with the rings and didn’t try to make them fancy or a mix of metals together, you adding a hammered look is a great nod to your craft and makes it very personal. Congrats on your engagement!

  425. Cup a Soup says:

    A L E C!! Wishing you two the best!

  426. TheAncapGent says:

    I like how you build up the suspense, Alec! First you make an engagement ring telling us that you have a girlfriend. Then you make your wedding rings telling us you succeeded in your proposal and subsequently show off your fiancée’s ring/s on her beautiful finger, telling us that she isn’t a figment of your imagination.
    Still no face reveal.
    Building up the suspense for the wedding footage, which of course you’re gonna share, right? If we don’t see that wife of yours, I’m gonna begin thinking you don’t love us, your fans, at all. <3
    Happy for you two, those are some stunning rings you've fixed for you and your woman!

  427. Darrell Butler says:

    Gratz dude. Hammered finish was always on the cards, wasn’t it ?

  428. Bora Yurtoren says:

    Don’t get this wrong, and it IS none of my business, I know, but… Aren’t you a little too young to get married? I mean, there are things to be lived in life before you tie the knot down… Just saying…

  429. Pete Powell says:

    Congrats me-bucko may you have many years of happiness.

  430. Mark E says:

  433. Erik Edwards says:

    You have come along ways Alec. Can remember watching some of your first videos in a very small shop/shed with very primitive accommodations. Always have admired your enthusiasm and high spirit congratulations on your engagement👍🏻 beautiful rings👌🏻

  434. Andy Aitken says:

    I reckon all 1.8million of us subscribers should crowdfund a private investigator to picture her and let us know who she is🤷🏻‍♂️🤣🤣🤣

  435. Madeline Moltzan says:

    alec looks so happy!!!

  436. da man says:

    That’s a nasty looking wound on your left index finger that showed up at around 5 minutes into the video. Towards the end of the video, it looked like it was getting infected. Put some Neosporin ointment on it and cover it with a tight adhesive bandage.

  437. Duncan Videos says:

    This was fascinating, I really loved it ! I love the diversity of your crafts. I wish I could make rings like this…

  438. Robert Lee says:

    I have been doing jewelry work for 25 years & I have learned every thing there is to know about it , it’s easy , I went to school for it for 4 years & I did a lot of pouring in my day & yes it is nerve racking to do but in do time you get comfortable with it , it’s just like anything else you learn .

  439. No comment says:

    Labor of love.

  442. Ben McGregor says:

    Plot twist; his fiance is Will

  443. Jacob Robinson says:

    Mr Steele congratulations. I think the hammered finish on the rings looks great.

  444. rthomaswright says:

    I think this video is … P R E C C C I O U S S S S S !!!

  445. Matthias K. says:

    Im so happy for you Alec! I know the feeling. There is nothing in this world as that made me as happy as the moment she said yes. Sadly it wasnt for long she got cold feet an ran away.
    I wish you and your fiance love, happiness and good health.

  446. Andrew McDonald says:

    Sooo, when do you start the jewellery business sales?

  447. Yvonne Rediger says:

    Tip: Weld your bride’s rings together after you are married. During normal wear and tear the wedding band and the engagement ring will wear thin. After four years, mine were noticeably worn. Had a jeweller weld them, now 36 years later, still perfect. Wishing you both all the best and many happy years.

  448. Ebrasmus says:

    Am I the only one surprised that Alec didn’t make himself a Damascus band????

  449. Eric H says:

    Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul,

  455. Akuma Lenny says:

    First off congrats and nice job on the rings and second will she appear in a video

  456. Frank & Sherry T says:

    Alec, once you two are married you should go back and solder her two rings together. They won’t wear against each other. Congrats

  459. Matt Tradie says:

    Well I lost money that it was Will. That said, Will is still in the game lol.

  460. Joshua Apathy Miller says:

    Hey Alec, congratulations on the engagement and upcoming wedding. I have a quick question if ya have a minute, what drill bits do you guys use… do you have/use all different types, or is there i preferred brand you tend to go to. I am curious if you use carbide, cobalt, some m35/m42, or just HSS for most of your work or if you just have them all?

  461. Meredith R says:

    Aw, sweet. So much time and work went into a special gift, which will probably be a family heirloom one day.

    In contrast, I had an old relative that drilled a whole in an silver quarter when he got married. His new wife hit it into shape with a spoon. He was a thoughtless, cheap bastard. And their marriage went just how one would expect.

  462. Gibson Films says:

    You should try a pressure pot instead of a vacuum chamber! I think you would get better results, You wouldn’t have to bang on it or help it out at all anymore either. 🤙

  468. Salvador Vazquez-Rangel says:

    Awesome! May you and your lady make beautiful memories….

  469. electro1622 says:

    Big mistake making those rings in 24 carat gold….. way too soft and you will find yourself remaking them soon because of wear… use 18 carat, it lasts longer…

  470. whitey2shot pewpew says:

    Congratulations bud! Rings look great.

  471. Daniel Wood says:

    Your finger is looking a little infected. Maybe should see a doctor.

  472. Benona Blacksmith Jeremy Blohm says:

    Just a suggestion…..colossal caves near Tucson Arizona allows weddings in the cave.

  473. John King says:

    That hammer finish is super class

  474. Jake T says:

    So regarding the gold trimmings and shavings from shaping how do you capture them?, considering the cost of the material.

  475. Barry says:

    Congrats dude!

  476. John King says:

    Congrats Alec!

  477. D friesen says:

  491. Casey OBrien says:

    just wondering, not a critique, but are her rings going to be locked together? Like making a inset on the edge so they fit like one seamless ring?

  492. BuffDogg says:

    I just see 1 problem. It’s yellow gold. Iridium dip those bad boys.

  493. The Perth Guy with the Bowtie says:

    All the very best with your engagement and your married life Alec. 14 year veteran here and it’s TOTALLY worth it.

  494. Matt Burke says:

    I am so happy for you. Blessings to you and your bride.

  495. fay2212 says:

    Alex and Will. I would love it if you could make a proper Japanese katana.
    I can link you to a few Youtube videos (documentaries?) that show the process of it being made. It’s quite in depth but it can be very rewarding.

  496. whiterabbit says:

    Congrats

  497. TC Woodshop says:

    I always thought that Will’s hand would look more a little more manly than that! lol

  501. FireMetalandMagic says:

    Hey Alec. I’m a jeweler that completes between 20 and 30 various repairs and creations per day from start to finish, and I must say that it’s really interesting seeing how a blacksmith grew into making jewelry, and the approaches you use to do things such as finishing and sizing. I can’t say it’s all what you’d call “best practice” but you make a wonderful final product. Good job, and good luck with the little lady! Keep it up.

  502. Ryan Linden says:

    Don’t do it friend. You’re WAAAY too young to get married. It’s not worth it.

  503. Jerry Wright says:

    I am a man whom has been married for over 42 years, I wish you a congrats on upon your future marriage. I am so happy for you.

  512. Grant Peevyhouse says:

    Talk about mixed feelings, I both want to see Alec’s fiancé. But also would totally understand if he wants to keep his private life private! 🤷‍♀️ it’s really the mystery that drives me crazy

  513. watchthe1369 says:

    Being able to make your own stuff and having it all with the “Custom Made” imprimatur at zero additional cost is just way cool and such a win. The facets on those rings at a nice high finish add a lot of interest and is strangely appropriate given your chosen trade.

  514. Brendan Douglas-Henry says:

    I agree hammered finish looks so different and cool nice!

  515. darthstewie76 says:

    That hammered finish looks great

  516. Nin says:

    I still want to know where this fiancee came from. I swear to God like four months ago he said he’d never had a girlfriend…

  536. Martin Skodacek says:

    Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you a MAN, A MAN who can make engagement ring for his fiance and wedding bands for both of them on his own, and bet your ass, this wasn’t last thing he did for his fiance in the workshop (we hope Alec to forge something more for their common life), more MEN like this, not such pussies like those of these days, I wish I were half a man like Alec .. great job as always Alec, huge respect from some abandoned hole in Slovakia 😉

  562. R Kirkland says:

    Our daughter loves to watch your videos with us. We fear we are setting her up for disappointment when she is getting engaged and married. I am not sure her future husband will be able to custom make her rings by hand.

  563. Aleksandar Krstić says:

    And yes a fine fat fingers of us manuel workers my wedding ring got too small in a year unfortunately leave a slack in dimension for future

  564. Brian !! says:

  570. Jon Smith says:

    Very nice .. and the hammered finish fits your lifestyle…you should be proud of your creations

  573. RumMonkeyable says:

    Really, really happy for you and your fiancée, Alec! To have the skill and talent to make your wedding bands and the engagement ring is REALLY special! I mean, how many folks can do this? Enjoy this time, cuz it’s goin’ to get a wee bit crazy the sooner the wedding date approaches. OR, are we approaching the wedding date in the very near future? Whatever you feel you can share with us about everything (including introducing us to the future Mrs. Steele), it will be appreciated and valued. 👍😍

  574. laiky71 says:

    beautiful job. Good luck to you both and the new family!

  575. Rob L says:

  582. Tsorraught says:

    Would you show your hands together with the rings? I understand if she doesn’t want her face shown to remain anon, but it would be a sweet shot to have just your hands together in one of your videos.

  583. David Dobinson says:

    That has to be one of the most exquisite set of rings I have ever seen, truly family heirlooms have just been created “yes my great great great grandfather MADE! these” outstanding sir 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  584. morophine swordphich says:

    Congratulations, Alec!

  585. Mawo Duffer says:

    The way you stretched your ring to size is the same way I stretched a copper coin ring to size. It’s pretty reliable.

  586. Truvo says:

    CONGRATS MY GUY GOOD LUCK ON THE WEDDING

  587. Pyroguy096 says:

    This is so amazing. I always wanted to make our wedding bands as well, I just don’t have access to the necessary equipment. Perhaps in the future I can make something for an anniversary gift.

  588. snarf552000 says:

    What does this mystery woman look like!? I didn’t even know he was dating someone Cheers dude!

  589. Mawo Duffer says:

    7 and a half?! I think I’m close to that for my left hand ring finger. Your hands look so much bigger on camera. Maybe it’s a different measurement method than I’m used to.

  590. Daniel Moller Handmade Knives says:

    Congrats and best wishes

  591. Sean Mackinnon says:

    what is that fantastic guitar music that was playing while working on the freshly cast ring?

  592. Paul E says:

    They look great. Was there any reason why you chose to cast rather than soldering?

  593. Adam says:

    The echo in the engraving room needs to be addressed. MORE FLAGS!!!!!!!!!!!

  597. S de Cort says:

    Wow, you look so Happy ☺️

  598. Hoody K says:

    Truly disgusting and a waste of your life. you probably only moved here for some hick girl. your in your fucking twenties man, maybe grow up first before you even consider something like this. to late now, have fun with that divorce in a couple years.

  599. Braxx Juventa says:

    Congratulations dude 🎉👍

  601. Maya Fik says:

    This is adorable! Your fiancé is very lucky

  602. Phil Grindle says:

    I still think the wedding should be videoed and shared for all of us that can’t be there. If it’s private that’s OK. AND at some point you need to introduce us to “Mrs. Steele”! I’m sure if she can put up with YOU she’s an interesting person in her own right!

  603. projekt89130 says:

    The hammered finish couldn’t be more fitting. I really like how it all turned out. Thanks for sharing, Alec and best wishes!

  604. m98de says:

  617. Marcel Lüthi says:

    The hammered finish is like marriage itself, it has facettes

  618. Spencer Coots says:

    When will you show her to us?

  619. Ethan Jones says:

    Wow, turns out Alec can keep a secret 😂 never even knew he had a girlfriend until one day I see he’s posted a video about making an engagement ring. Congratulations on getting married! 👏🎉

  620. Steckdose 007 says:

  621. Lee McGann says:

    When is the BIG day?

  622. Ironbomb says:

  624. Cunningham Ranch says:

  625. SirPunch2Face says:

    I don’t even bat for that team and I gotta say I’m kinda jealous haha XD You’re a good man, Alec! Treat her well!

  626. Robert Stoker says:

    Congrats to you both 😁

  627. Shop Therapy says:

    Those close up shots of Will’s fingers wearing the engagement ring are very telling! – soft hands!

  628. Lee McGann says:

  635. Joe Cool says:

    So when do we all get to meet the little lady?

    Btw, your privacy is paramount and I fully understand if you wish to keep your private life private. 😎👍

  636. Wisky Docent says:

    Once again, mazel Tov on your engagement!!! XD

  637. Duffyz1 says:

    If you tried making a Damascus style steel ring, can you still work harden it?

  638. Trevor Or says:

    Her! Such a beutiful name

  639. Rick Donnelly says:

    It’s too bad you didn’t record the reaction when you told your Mum and Dad that you were getting married.

  640. jchoneandonly says:

    Also, excellent build

  641. Reaper RT10 says:

    Hammered looks awesome! Perfect ring for a blacksmith.

  642. Jet Piston says:

    Lovely! Well done!

  643. jchoneandonly says:

    You’re only an 8? Lucky bastard. It’s tough to find a ring in a 13. Lol.

  651. Jan Müller says:

    They look awesome! Nice work Alec!!!

  652. Alex Paradi says:

    Congrats and another great video – thanks for sharing. Now when is that weird titanium anvil going to be used? I assumed that it was for jewelry?

  653. saadlaws says:

    I’m not saying I think this, but do you think that Alec is marring an American girl just because he got freaked out by Trump and he’s trying to find a way to stay in the country permanently?

  654. James Reid says:

    HER HAND! WE GOT TO SEE HER HAND!! God bless you two 😉

  655. Patman Crowley says:

    If I had the money I’d buy me some of those Paragon ovens that you have. I am glad that Paragon sponsors your channel! Thanks Paragon Ovens for sponsoring Alec Steele! Paragon Ovens are AWESOME! PARAGON! PARAGON! PARAGON!

  656. Heather Lewis says:

  657. Patman Crowley says:

    Well, old boy, I have to agree with you. All of the rings look absolutely fabulous and I too love the look of the hammered finish on your wedding band. A great idea from a great guy! Peace, Love and Happiness to you, your family and your future family!

  658. Sean Grange says:

  659. Papa Warbiscuits says:

  665. Ian Eckberg says:

    Also congrats on getting married i myself am getting hitched next year

  666. Ian Eckberg says:

    Ive watched you for a good three years. I love all the things that you have made. All three rings are beautiful. I myself make jewelry from stone beads and copper and silver. If you would like to see them you can see them at my instagram Hadenian. For pack of dragons jewelry hope you follow.

  667. Cygnwolf says:

    The hammered finish looks so cool

  668. polk says:

    I’m proud of you two, much love <3

  669. Daniel Feldsien says:

    I always thought it’d be cool to take gold and silver and hammer them together to make a sort of… electrum damascus? Just a neat, stripey, organic-looking combination of two precious metals to make for someone precious. I’m rambling now.

  670. evil brat says:

    Wonder if his woman will “Tame His HAIR!” Does have it cut closer on the sides than usual though. . . . Hmmm ~ Oh Yea…good job on the rings, that hammered & polished finish looks outstanding. And Congrats!

  671. Craig Rigby says:

    Great job Alec! When are we going to get to meet her? 🙂

  672. Opin-Eon says:

    I’m surprised that you didn’t go with a yellow and white gold Damascus style starting material…

  673. Daniel Ladishew says:

    I’m surprised you didn’t do something with Damascus. Good finish tho, i’ve always liked the hammered look for gold.

  674. Alan Wordley says:

    Love the finish, nice work.

  675. Trevor P says:

    Remember you’re doing this in summer. Once that cold Montana winter hits your fingers shrink and rings come off very easily, especially for people that work with and move their hands frequently. Half size small in summer is good for winter. Wife got me a silicon one for work/working out so I don’t have to worry about it as much and wear my wedding band for going out/special events.

  676. David Earnest says:

    I remember being young and stupid. Then I got married. Now I’m old and stupid. And broke…… Good luck kiddo!

  677. Rashid Kopar says:

    I really like these types of videos you do💪 a change from the usual slice and dice weapons to more domestic creations😂😂
    Would love to see more😍😁

  678. Mediocre Gameplay says:

    when do we get to meet her?

  679. greg evans says:

    Most sincere congratulations and blessings to the future Mr and Mrs Steele.

  681. Sonny Maile says:

    I never miss an episode into your daily life. Thank you for the opportunity to be even a little part of it. Congrats on the engagement and it’s so amazing to see how enthusiastic you are. If you put forth the same effort and entusiasm in your union as you do with everything else you do on here, I know you will have a very thriving and abundant marriage.

  682. Carl Groover says:

    the hammered finish is great!

  683. Daniel Goldman says:

    That’s fantastic Alec. Since you are in Montana and Montana produces some of the finest sapphires in the world I would love seeing you make more jewelry. If so can you show the process of alloying gold and how to make rose gold? I think that would be very interesting and educational

  684. Gavin Sharman says:

    Congrats bud 👍🏻

  685. Ryan Ramsey says:

    dandy…

  686. Mark O'Connell says:

    Can you do a Damascus Gold/Bronze thing? Is this a thing?

  687. Mark O'Connell says:

    They look awesome! She must be thoroughly thrilled that you created these. Alec buy the Love Dare Book. It will teach you how to love your wife as a wife!

  688. TheEndOfSolace says:

    The genuine uncontrollable happiness on your face is amazing man. I’m SO happy for you this is a big step for you and I hope all goes well for you two. 🙂

  689. Joshua Barnett says:

  696. Garland Garrett says:

    When do we get to meet the lucky woman?

  697. Michael Behrens says:

    such beautiful work dude. we need to know who your fiance is!!!

  698. Christy Gracias says:

    Love the hammer finish on your ring

  699. Stephen James Hooper says:

    Yeah mate, as long as you’re not rushing into it… Bloody hell 😂 The only time you show your face these days is to remind us that you’re getting some. Grim 😂

  700. Daniel Nilsson says:

    When you realise that you’ve seen the fiance alot of times and his name is even on Alec’s t-shirt. Congratulations to Both of you. 😛

  701. Luis 555 says:

    Could you sell a pair of bands

  702. Dbrimley says:

    Cmon Alec. When do we get to meet her?

  703. Kidicoris says:

    Your Sanding accident is looking a lot better, also, how did you get “her” ring size?

    I probably should have watched further.

  704. Spam Spamerich says:

    This is so amazing! These rings are looking stunning!

    Thank you for all your videos Alec! Greetings from Germany.

  705. Arnie Nonymous says:

    The shortest sentence – “I am.” The longest sentence – “I do.”

  706. brian hilligoss says:

    Yeah Will said yes.

  707. Glen Everett says:

    That hammered finish is AWESOME!!!!!!!! 👍👍👍👍👍👍

  708. Dakoda Beaver says:

    Oh no our Alec is all grown up. Congrats on the wedding man

  709. BL0P0 says:

    it´s just great to see you this kind of happy

  710. Elliot Eeasygoing says:

    The hammered finish was definetely the right decision it looks so good and is kinda related to ur passion 🙂

  711. Jonathan Boice says:

    Congratulations once again happy for you both.

  712. Jonathan Boice says:

    Still would love to know the story about how they met. But the real question why did the king of Damascus not make a good on gold rose or white gold Damascus rings??

  713. Eivind Rømcke says:

    Can we all just take a moment and appreciate Alec 10:36 – 10:38

  714. Nick Buring says:

    I wonder which company sponsor he is going to get for silicon wedding bands. It would be a shame to lose a finger while working

  715. GeoFitz4 says:

    Alec – You should paint the floor black and put a lacquer coat over it wherever you’re going to be filing gold. That way any of the gold dust can be swept up and identified easily. I saw this in a Royal Canadian Mint video about their refining process so that they could make sure they didn’t lose any gold.

  716. michael garbutt says:

    Why not heat the band and tap it down the mandrel to enlarge it . I’m sure that’s how it’s done

  717. Nice slicers says:

    Aw just think how cute Will will look as a page boy 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  718. judo fever says:

    3 more rings for wedding right?😂

  719. GHOST says:

    OMG, I am so happy for you two! The bands and the rings look amazing!
    Keep up that smile!

  720. nick forlini says:

    Why dont we have a video of you putting that finger in the meat grinder

  721. Jakub Narębski says:

    @Alec, would you be engraving (or electro-pencil) those rings e.g. with the wedding date on the inside?

  722. Tina Cox says:

    Could you make any mold for necklaces, earings, bracelets, or any type of jewelry for that matter?

  723. James Holmes says:

    Congratulations. When do the baby Alec’s start crawling around the forge.

  724. Yahya El Assad says:

    Wow.

  725. Tokyo Craftsman says:

    Congrats to you and your lovely fiance, I’m so happy for you both and your families.
    Cheers from Tokyo!

  726. Adam James says:

    It would be funny if you married Will’s mum

  727. Amanda Watson says:

    Who is “her”, young man? Does “her” have a name?

  728. Luke Bradford says:

    When you guna put a pic of you n her on insta alec? The secrecy killin me!

  729. JUNCTION MEDIA says:

    Congrats Alec. All the best.

  730. Hello there ! Ian Maxim Burrows says:

    That’s a fantastic ring Alec I’ve been a silversmith for at least ten years & I can’t believe you made such a beautiful design as a first ring ! You got some skills Alec !
    Great to be included in this special time I wish you all the best possible I think all will be good something tells me that you will be happy.

  731. MadHatterX - Central Main Unit says:

    Well now i know why Alec needed that double welded metal bed, have fun with your lady 😉

  732. William Livingstone says:

    When you do lost wax casting, do you reuse the wax that you melt out of the molds?

  733. Gerald Olson says:

    Please tell me you are not planning on wearing a ring while working. As someone who almost lost a finger I can tell you your better of wearing a safety ring instead.

  734. Winston says:

    he looks so happy and excited!

  735. Eric Janney says:

    The rings look amazing. This would have been a great opportunity for some gold/platinum mokume gane though.

    • 5stargeneralford says:

      perhaps thats for his 25th anniversary a he makes a pure platinum for the 50th anniversary [show how thier marriage is gaining value 🙂 ]

  736. T DeMario says:

    Why doesn’t Will where thing ring when he’s working??

  737. Edman209 says:

    Very nice

  738. TheRedhawke says:

  743. Onehappydawg says:

    I get an alert that this video was just posted and I get here and it’s already been viewed 154,000 time, with 12,000 likes and 1,500 comments. A little slow today aren’t we YouTube.

  744. Johan Lind says:

    Brit/American guys don’t wear any engagement bands? Just the woman?

    I wear both my engagement ring and my wedding band!

  745. J Mireles says:

    Just started the video, so forgive me if it’s already happened, but, when do we get to meet the lucky lady?

  746. Aiden O'Sewart says:

    You should go to your wedding with your grinding helmet on.

  747. Dave Brohman says:

    The hammered finish looks great. Good choice leaving them that way.

  748. ronald bird says:

    Stunning work Alec!! They look perfect!!! Keep up the FANTASTIC work!!

  749. CormacMacCormac says:

    I thought you were with Will 🙂

  750. DeadF2K says:

    Congrats man 👏 🙏 💍

  751. Gary Young says:

    Is this why you moved to ‘Merica Alec? Seems like a reasonable reason. Congratulations and Best wishes on your future.

  752. Veniden says:

    Those rings are beautiful

  753. Shaun Ramkissoon says:

    Very proud of you my friend. I remember from the early days you made Q&A video which (surprisingly) showed a quieter version of Alec that always stuck with me. The catalyst for this rare peak into the somber version of Alec was when shared your motivation for growing this business. You said, all those years ago, was to have the means to start a family. I know being a content creator AND business owner can’t be easy. What IS easy, to your detriment, is to have those things engulf your entire life with no room for yourself. Cheers to you for creating a work/life balance, and congratulations for your first big step into actualizing your long-term dream. I am very happy for you both.

  754. ɑʟpʜɑ ɱɑсʜɪиɑ says:

    I love that hammered finish.

  755. Jacob Whitfield says:

    Get Cody from Cody’s Lab up there to do a precious metal refining video on all the dust in your shop 😂

  756. John Smith says:

    This was published on the day of my parents anniversary… coincidence hell no

  757. Nerd With an Opinion says:

    Imagine being proposed to with a ring handmade by your s/o. Alec is quite the catch. Congrats!🎉

  758. Samuel Thomas says:

    Why don’t you have a leather under your jewellery bench?????? Catch those filings!!!

  759. Sue Beedle says:

    Alec, you can’t call your fiancé ‘Her’!

  760. Michael Parr says:

    Awsome feeling right. Just wait you’ll be resizing those rings after a kid or two 😉

  761. Robert Adkins says:

    Opps square space will be the sponsor .

  762. Frank The CADD Monkey says:

    So do we get to “meet” this young lady? Just wondering…

  763. Robert Adkins says:

    Square space will be skillshare

  764. The big man metal detecting says:

    I would like to offer my services to sweep the floor of your jewellers workshop to pan out the gold you are wasting on the floor…..when would be a good time lol

  765. Patrick Teague says:

    Outstanding work, Alec. Many blessing to you both. May you both have many years of happiness.

  766. Lisajane Craig says:

    Congratulations to you both!

  767. Brian Mercado says:

    I can see him waking up in the middle of the night measuring her finger with a caliper lol

  768. derek wilkinson says:

    Will you be introducing us to your bride to be ? The rings are gorgeous BTW the hammer finish looks great.

  769. Joe Londeree says:

    Those hammer marks really make the ring pop. Heading into the garage now with my wedding band…. don’t tell Leah!

  770. Roy Simpson says:

    Congratulations Alec. I hope you and your soon to be wife have a great marrage. My wife and I have been married for 20 years and love each other as much as if not more than when we got married. Communication, laughter and love are the keys to a long and loving relationship. I knew she was the one for me when I realized I didn’t want to and couldn’t live without her. Because the question is not, can I live with her, bit it is, can I live without her.

  771. Nakamura65 says:

    Aleces fiancee is like Columbos wife,….. nobody ever seen her

  772. Brian Mercado says:

    Did he ask an American? Lol

  773. Thomas Lips says:

    Huge congratulations to you both!! Here’s to many happy years together!!

  774. julissa medina says:

    How adorable 😭💓

  775. Chilly Water says:

    When are you guys getting married? You and Will make such a cute couple. So excited you too.

  776. LiGhTMaGiCk says:

    Do you try at all to recapture the gold lost from grinding/sanding/filing? I can’t see any sort of capture bag or anything that you’re using.

  777. Anchor Avalon says:

    This made me a bit emo tbh. Really good work. Good luck!

  778. Music Man says:

    Next ring making you do, I would recommend asking Pablo Cimadevila, just for some professional advice and guidance

    • Music Man says:

      Michaël De Paepe
      Pablo is a professional ring maker and is able to help with anything Alec needs help with and can answer possibly all of his questions to.
      Besides it was just a suggestion.

  779. eric littrell says:

    the way your face lights up when you are talking about your girl makes me happy for you. congrats Alec

  780. Jooshbag says:

    Bad day for those weird Alec/Will shippers who off-handedly assumed Alec was gay because he has a posh-ish accent (and Will by pure association, I guess).

  781. Asremzee Ab Razak says:

    Very Nice & Stunning looking Multifaceted effect on hammered gold ring… Best wishes & Congrats on your wedding Alec… May you have One happily family ever after…

  782. Rookie Lock says:

    Hey Alec, quick filing tip for round stuff if you don’t know it! To maintain a radius and not get flat spots, start with the file tip pointed down, and as you push through the stroke, drop the handle end. The stroke should end with the tip of the file pointed up.

  802. Corey Sleap says:

    Achieving your goals bro

  803. SLICKGLN says:

    I think It would be cool to include more silent (without music) parts in the video, with just the sounds of the machines and stuff. It would be amazing!
