Della sees the golden chain and knows it was meant to be for Jim. So she buys the chain.
Della and Jim
When Della was crying because she only had $1.87 and it was not enough to buy Jim a gift and there was nothing to do.
When someone gives Della the idea to cut her hair and sell it for $20.
Della want home to wait on Jim for she can give him the gift that she had brought him but she was worried about when he would see her with her hair cut he wouldn´t look at her the same or that he woudnt love her no more
Jim gets home and has a reaction that Della can not explain cause he had just given up his watch for he could buy Della a combs that she always wanted but now she wont even be able to put it on because she had cut her hair. They both had given given up something in order to buy a gift for another
