Qing Butterfly Chinese Nail Protector - Yellow

During the Qing Dynasty the upper class in China grew their fingernails long as a sign they didn't do any work. Empress Qinglong was said to have 6-inch nails! Even in today's China some men also grow their forefinger long to show they don't need to labour. This unusual jewelry is used to protect the fingernail. Price is per nail protector. Just over 3-inches long and adjust to fit all but the largest finger.

May be slightly different, depending on stock.
