Madam Loisel's husband had been invited to a party. Madam Loisel had wanted a new fancy dress so madam Loisel's husband gave her 400 franks so she could buy a new dress
Madam Loisel wanted more than just a dress she wanted jewelry. she had gone to her friends Madam Forestier house and asked to borrow some jewelry. She wasn't interested in most of the jewelry but than came across a necklace and she asks to borrow it for the night.
while at the party madam Loisel was a big hit. On the way out everyone had a fur coat but she did not have one so she took off. When she gets home, she realized she had lost the necklace. The Loisels looked everywhere but couldn't find it. They find one that looks exactly like it but it cost 36,000 franks so they get a bunch of loans to by the necklace.
after 10 years of debt, they finally pay everything off. Madame Loisel had aged drastically from all the hard work madame Loisel and her husband had done. He had multiple jobs to pay off all the debt.
Madame Loisel bumped into Madame Forestier on the streets. Madame Forestier does not recognize madame Loisel from how drastically she had aged. Madame Loisel tells Madame Forestier the truth about losing the necklace.
Madame Forestier than told Madame Loisel that the necklace was only a paste and only worth 500 franks. it is ironic because she wanted more and charesed a fake necklace. And she spent so much money on it.
