These are potato chip finger covers for eating potato chips.  I bet they would work for keeping fingers clean from buffing compound.  Thoughts?

Maharaja necklace

New emerald and diamond necklace that reminds me of the Maharajas necklace.

In the early 1900s, many of the Maharjas of India had their jewelry re-mounted by big European design houses like Cartier, Tiffany, etc. The jewelers were surprised that much of the jewelry was re-made for the men and not the women.
