Hello! First time posting here. So, amidst all the excitement of wedding planning, I've found myself insecure of a peculiar thing: the size of my hands.
I'm a girl, and my fiance is male. There certainly seems to be an expectation that women are supposed to have smaller ring sizes than men, but I have a ring size several sizes larger than him (I'm a 10.5-11, he's a 6.5--yes, he's on the petit side). I'm larger than him, in general--I'm about 4" taller than him and my feet are bigger than his.
He's reassured me that there's nothing wrong with any of that and that I'm beautiful, but after being turned away from all but one jewelry store in the mall because the rest just don't carry or adjust to my size... I've been finding myself more and more insecure over it.
So, two questions:
1) Do you deal with insecurity over ring size? If so, how do you deal with it?
2) What are the best jewelry stores that carry larger ring sizes for women? I still want a pretty and "feminine" ring, but most of the stores I've visited only carry rings up to size 8.
(Clarification on the last point-my FH and I have been dating for three years and in a "pre-engagement" for the last several months. This summer, we're going to make the engagement official; since we've already discussed the engagement, we're picking out the rings together).
