Mathilde Loisel get helps from her husband to get a dress. But she still wasn't pleases with just the dress. So, she borrows a diamond necklace from her friend, Mme. Forestier.
Mme. Loisel was the main attraction at the ball, and everyone was digging her necklace, until it goes missing. After her and her husband spend days searching for it, they decide to replace it with one that is identical. But, the cost is way more than they make.
Your necklace looks amazing!
After spending ten years of paying off the debt for the necklace, Mme. Loisel and her husband no longer have to.
One day, on Mathilde's way to the market she ran into Mme. Forestier. She decided to tell her what happened with the necklace.
That necklace I borrowed from you 10 years ago, ruined my life.
Mme. Forestier informs that the necklace she let Mathilde borrow, was just a fake.
