Loisel Madame was a beautiful young women. She was good looking but she had nothing that she had wanted. She didn't have money, clothes, or jewelry. This made here jealous and selfish, "She had no proper wardrobe, no jewels, nothing".
"then one evening her husband arrived home looking triumphant and waving a large envelope". she tore it open viciously and it was an invitation to a ball. She got upset and annoyed rather than being happy. She was upset because she would look poor compared to the others at the ball
She got a cheap dress that her husband bought but she wanted to look better. She wanted something flashy like jewelry; Her friend was rich and had lots of jewelry. "take your pick, my dear". Loisel wasn't satisfied with what she saw and wanted more. She got greedy and grabbed the biggest diamond necklace she could find.
"She was the prettiest woman there". She had a nice dress and the biggest jewels. After the ball they got into a cab and Madame Loisel realized that the necklace was missing. They panicked and searched through the cab.
Her husband traced the path that they took to the cab in search of the necklace. He had no luck and lost hope. Back at their home, worried and confused on how the necklace went missing they thought about what they would tell her friend."by the end of this week they had lost all hope".
They wrote a letter to a friend saying that the necklace broke and was being fixed. They stalled and lied for the next ten years while working hard to earn money for a new necklace. "you could have brought it back a little sooner"! In the end they discovered that the lost necklace was fake.
