“Her tastes were simple because she had never been able to afford any other, but she was as unhappy as though she had married beneath her; for women have no caste or class, their beauty, grace, and charm serving them for birth or family, their natural delicacy, their instinctive elegance, their nimbleness of wit, are their only mark of rank, and put the slum girl on a level with the highest lady in the land.” She is feeling sad because she doesn't have her dream life.
we need more time to search
“She had no clothes, no jewels, nothing. And these were the only things she loved; she felt that she was made for them. She had longed so eagerly to charm, to be desired, to be wildly attractive and sought after.” She is feeling mad/sad because she is poor and doesn't have all of the things she wants
its so good to see you!!
"I . . . I . . . I've no longer got Madame Forestier's necklace. . . ." She is scared when she finds out that she had lost her friends necklace because she couldn't replace it due to her lack of money
"You must write to your friend," he said, "and tell her that you've broken the clasp of her necklace and are getting it mended. That will give us time to look about us." Her husband is afraid because he came back from the police station and he had not found the necklace knowing that they would have to replace it
"I brought you another one just like it. And for the last ten years we have been paying for it. You realise it wasn't easy for us; we had no money. . . . Well, it's paid for at last, and I'm glad indeed." She is glad that she has finally paid the necklace off and that she finally is getting the chance to tell her friend the truth
"Oh, my poor Mathilde! But mine was imitation. It was worth at the very most five hundred francs! . . . " She is shocked when she finds out that she paid way more than Madame Forestier paid for the necklace
