An example of situational irony in "The Necklace" is when Mathilde woks very hard her whole life to make money to pay back the necklace, but she realized the necklace was fake.
An example of verbal irony in "The Necklace" is when they are talking about the invitation. Mathilde did not really want her husband to give away the invitation to someone else, although she was not grateful for it.
An example of dramatic irony in this short story is the fact that Mathilde is borrowing this necklace that she thinks is very expensive. The dramatic irony is when she loses it, after that event, she becomes more poorer than she originally was.
