Madame Loisle and her husband lived in France during the 1900's. They had an average sized house with a maid.
How could you lose it ?!?!
Madame Loisel had a hard life she thought with not having things shiny. For example she longed to have money and fancy things eventhough she lived in a nice house with a maid.
On January, 18 the couple was invited to a ball with fancy rich people. Madame had nothing nice to wear so she went and bought a dress for the ball that costed 400 franks. than she decided that she needed jewles so she asked her wealthy friend if she could wear her dimond necklace. she wanted to be the prettiest girl at the dance.
i lost your necklace and bought you a new one...
it was only pace, it was not real
As Madame Loisle returns home she realized that she did not have the necklace anymore. her husband goes everywhere looking for it as she lays on the couch.
The two put up posters looking for the necklace and rewards for finding it but at the end of 2 weeks they find nothing or hear anything about it. They had to buy a new dimond necklace and the two became in a lot of dept .
10 years go by of paying off the 40,000 dollar necklace and they finally get it done. Madame was walking on the street and saw her old friend who let her use the necklace, she said " Hi" and was telling her about the necklace how she lost the origanl dimond necklace/. Her old friend said " The necklace was only pace."
