Looking for rings for my giant fingers

I'm looking for advice on men's jewelry. Specifically I am interested in ethnic style rings such as: Turkoman, Andaman, Bedouin and similar styles. The problem is that I have huge hands. I wear a size 14 ring. So of course I have found it next to impossible to find anything in my size.

Does anyone know if these types of rings can be sized up successfully? I know that to make them bigger it would require them to be cut, enlarged and soldered. These rings generally have lots of design work on the band of the ring. Will the resizing mar the etching on the band or harm the stones (generally turquoise, carnelian and other semi-precious stones)? The largest I have found have been a size 10-12. Would this be prohibitively expensive (i.e. more expensive than the actual ring, $100)? These rings are generally made from silver. Any advice? Please help me hivemind.
