There is only one thing left to do: sell her most treasured possession, her beautiful knee-length hair. But when Jim returns home he is aghast - his gift for her is the tortoiseshell combs she has coveted for so long! And to buy them he has sold his precious gold pocket-watch . for which Della has just sacrificed her hair to buy a perfect platinum chain!
