In the 1930s, Mathilde arrived home. Monsieur gives his wife an invitation to a ball, hoping to make her day better.
With a dress I don't have any jewlery. I should just stay home.
Monsieur had told her to ask her rich friend Jeanne if she could borrow something, so she did.
It's nothing my dear.
Thank you so much!
Yes, we shall.
You look beautiful, shall we dance?
At the ball Mathilde and Monsieur have a splendid time. She loved being the center of attention and being envied.
She should've just told the truth.
When they got home they couldn't find the necklace. They searched and made calls everywhere and it still hadn't been found. Instead of telling Jeanne it was lost, she said it was getting fixed while she decided to buy a new necklace.
With all the debts they owed they had to work hard. They moved into an attic and sold there home. After 10 long years they were done paying everybody back.
You should've told me it, was merely a fake that was only 400 francs.
One day Mathilde sees Jeanne and says hello. But she doesn't recognize her untill she tells her who she is. Mathilde had really changed over the years. She had told her old friend that it was all her fault because she had lost the necklace, but replaced it and worked to pay for it.
I bought a new necklace for 36,000 and you never even noticed.
