Two spheres 2-3mm diameter soldered about 60-90 degrees apart at
the back of the shank to reduce the ring’s tendency to roll
around the finger.

Hi Skip,

 Please forgive my ignorance, but could someone please explain
to me what sizing beads are? <<

Sizing beads are small beads of gold/silver/platinum that are
soldered inside the ring shank at about 10 & 2 o’clock (usually).
They serve to ke ep a ring from turning on the finger while not
reducing the ease with which it can be put on & removed. If a
person’s finger periodically swells or shrinks for what ever
reason this alleves the too tight/loose ring proble m.
