She was a poor person with no real future she had no chance of being loved or understood by others. She tried her hardest to fit in with everyone else but it just never worked out. "Unable to afford jewelry, she dressed simply: but she was as wretched as a déclassée, for women have neither caste nor breeding—in them beauty, grace, and charm replace pride of birth.
“The Minister of Education and Madame Georges Ramponneau request the pleasure of the company of M. and Mme. Loisel at an evening reception at the Ministry on Monday, January 18th”. She was invited to this reception but she was to poor to go to the reception. She works very hard and pulls every string to get all the stuff she needs for this reception.
She went over to one of her friends house to ask her if she could barrow some of her jewelry for the party that she wanted to go to. She was so happy when her friend let her barrow one of her very expensive looking necklaces for the party. "She threw her arms around her friend’s neck, kissed her ardently, and fled with her treasure."
She took off her wraps before the mirror so that she could see herself in all her glory once more. Then she cried out. The necklace was gone; there was nothing around her neck. She was so sad when she realized that it was gone. She had no idea how she was going to be able to repay her for it
She went a worked as many jobs as possible trying to earn enough money to buy another one of these necklaces. The necklace that she found to replace it cost $10,000 to buy. She didn't have near that much money in her bank account so she kept working.
She finally earned enough money to buy the necklace for her friend. Then she went and back it back to her friend and explained what happened to her. Then her friend told her that the necklace that she lent her was only worth $500 not $10,000.
