Topic:You have received a gift of money. The money is enough to buy either a piece of jewelry you
like or tickets to a concert you want to attend. Which would you buy? Use specific reasons and
details to support your answer.
The choice between spending money on tickets to a concert or spending money on jewelry is an
easy one. Given this choice, I would buy jewelry. The reasons are obvious. Jewelry is an
investment; it is permanent; and it is fashionable.
Jewelry like a gold bracelet for example is a very good investment. It is important for women (and
for men, too) to have gold jewelry. If you have some serious financial problem, you could always
set your jewelry to help you over any rough spots. You could not sell your used concert ticket.
Jewelry, unless you sell it, is permanent. You always have it to wear. Each time you put it on, you
will remember the day you bought it. It will give you pleasure for years and years. You could not
wear the ticket stub from the concert.
Jewelry is very fashionable. I would feel very smart wearing a beautiful gold bracelet or diamond
pin. People would comment and tell me how much they loved my jewelry. They would
compliment me on my good taste.
I would feel very rich with my jewelry. I would have a good investment which is permanent and
fashionable. Then, when someone invites me to a concert (and pays for my ticket), I will have
something beautiful to wear.
