  • "And what do you suppose I am to wear at such an affair?" He had not thought about it; he stammered: "Why, the dress you go to the theatre in. It looks very nice, to me . . ."
  • "And what do you suppose I am to wear at such an affair?"
  • "Very well. I'll give you four hundred francs. But try and get a really nice dress with the money."... "Go and see Madame Forestier and ask her to lend you some jewels. You know her quite well enough for that."
  • Rising Action
  • Madame Loisel was eating dinner, but was sulking because she wished she had fancier things such as nice food, a bigger house, ornaments for the house, and tapestries. 
  • Climax
  • "I . . . I . . . I've no longer got Madame Forestier's necklace. . . ."
  • "I'll go over all the ground we walked,and see if I can't find it."
  • Madame Loisel sat at the table and her husband walked in with an envelope. She opened it and only to became more depressed. She did not want to go, because she could not have nice things that would cause her to be the center of the party.  
  • Falling Action 
  • Madame Loisel danced all night. She was the star of the party and had plenty to drink. She continued to talk to everyone, and she left around four O'clock in the morning. 
  • Resolution
  • "I brought you another one just like it. And for the last ten years we have been paying for it."
  • Mr.Loisel searched for three hours and did not find anything. He contacted the police station, the newspapers to offer an award, and the cab companies. He found no trace of the necklace, so they decided to pay for a replica that cost thirty four thousand francs. They borrowed some money to pay for the necklace, but knew they had to work to pay those people back. 
  • They continued to work off all the money they owed to all of the people they borrowed money from. They did this for 10 years.  They finally paid off the money they owed and were debt free. 
  • Madame Loisel saw Madame Forestier in the park and decided to tell her the truth about what had happened to her necklace. She told Madame Forestier the truth but discovered that the necklace was, at the most, five hundred francs. 
  • "You say you bought a diamond necklace to replace mine?"  "Oh, my poor Mathilde! But mine was imitation. It was worth at the very most five hundred francs! . . . "
