I have an invitation for us! We were invited to the Ministry's ball!
We are introduced to Maria, a bourgeoisie (middle-class) women who has the desire to be wealthy and seems to be very thankful.
Maria is married to a low-ranking official of the Ministry of Education, and has an invitation. Maria is unimpressed and instead complains about not having a dress or a necklace for the ball.
Maria has an idea! He decides to give his consort four-hundred Francs to buy a dress and borrow a necklace from Matilda.
Maria decide to go to the ball after Maria picks a dress and a diamond necklace, BUT ends up losing it.
I lost the necklace!
Maria decide to give a reward for the necklace, but it is hopeless, so the Maria spend whatever francs they have left and work to pay off the diamond necklace, which is ten years by the way and give the necklace to Matilda.
Maria encounters Matilda and explains her hardship, and how they sepnt the last of their francs for the necklace.Matilda reveals her necklace was a fake ending the story with a bang of situational irony and the moral theme is: "Be thankful for what you have".
