A: "I love your bracelet. When did you get it?"
B: "I got it awhile ago, but I haven't worn it much. You really like it?"
A: "Yeah. It's beautiful. Is it white gold or silver?"
B: "It's white gold."
A: "Where did you buy it?"
B: "My boyfriend took me to the Shane Co. and he let me pick it out."
A: "That's so sweet. What was the occasion?"
B: "That's the best part. It wasn't for anything special. He just wanted to buy me something."
A: "You're so lucky. If he bought you something for no special day, I wonder what he would buy you for your birthday."
B: "My birthday is coming up next month. We'll find out pretty soon."
A: "What do you want?"
B: "I wouldn't mind a necklace. I was at the jewelry shop looking around, and they have a couple of beautiful necklaces I want."
A: "Why not a ring?"
B: "I don't think I'm ready for a ring from him yet."
A: "But you're ready for everything else?"
B: "Damn right."

A: "Hi. Can I help you with anything?"
B: "Yeah. Can I look at this ring?"
A: "Sure. Let me get it out for you. What is your size?"
B: "I believe I am a six."
A: "Here you go."
B: "Would you have any necklace that would go well with this?"
A: "Actually, we have a few to choose from. They are over here."
B: "There's no price tag on this necklace."
A: "Oh. I'm sorry. I'll check the price for you. It is $199."
B: "This necklace is a little short. Do you have one that is longer?"
A: "Yes. Why don't you try this one on."
B: "This one is much better. Can I try on the ring with this necklace?"
A: "Sure. Here you go."
B: "Let me think about it."
A: "Sure. Take your time."
B: "Thank you for all the help."
A: "No problem at all."

A: "You did a fabulous job with the selection. It's gorgeous."
B: "Thank you so much."
A: "What kind of watch is it?"
B: "It's a Tag Heuer."
A: "If you don't mind me asking, how much do they cost?"
B: "This one is $1500. But they range from $600 to $3000."
A: "That's why it looks so nice. I should have figured. You always get what you pay for."
B: "Yeah. I would rather get one nice watch instead of 20 mediocre ones."
