Let’s create a dictionary which contains prices of stocks.

In [1]: prices = {'icici': 710, 'reliance': 2617, 'airtel': 737}

Now we can call the items() method to get the list of key-value pairs of the dictionary.

In [2]: prices.items()
Out[2]: dict_items([('icici', 710), ('reliance', 2617), ('airtel', 737)])

Looping through key-value pairs in the dictionary –

We can use a for loop to loop through all the key-value pairs of the dictionary using items() method.

In [3]: for key, value in prices.items():
   ...:     print('\nShare:', key)
   ...:     print('Price:', value)

Share: icici
Price: 710
