Where to find a ring like this to fit my fat fingers?

Can anyone help me find a women's ring like this or this in a size ten? Steel is difficult to resize, so I don't know if I could just buy it and take it to a jeweler. I tried on the men's version and it is too thick and bulky.

Answering my own question here, but this is a good example. I prefer to go steel or titanium, however.

We bought our wedding rings from and recommend their merchandise and customer serivce. You may find what you like here.

The keyword to look for is probably "Tension Setting". My wife's engagement ring is like this. Tension settings are generally not resizable, regardless of the material they're made out of.

We bought our wedding rings from these guys.

Looks like they have a few tension setting ring styles, and it seems that most of them go up to size 10 and beyond.

My finacé and I just went through a similar situation, but instead of needing an unusual size we had an idea for a custom design in titanium. After LOTS of unsuccessful searching online and emailing every titanium place on the 'net we could find, we were eventually lucky enough to find a machinist/jeweler in the Minneapolis area who works in Titanium (though only through word of mouth). He would likely be able to meet your needs, and furthermore be able to make exactly what you want. Beyond size, he can do very specific widths, thicknesses, etc. He doesn't have a website, but feel free to contact me through my user page and I'll pass on his contact info. He does great stuff, and we're thrilled with our rings!
