The Necklace tells the story of Madame Mathilde Loisel and her husband. Mathilde always imagined herself in a high social position with wonderful jewels.

Through lots of begging at work her husband is able to get a couple of invitations to the Ministry of the Public Instruction party. Mathilde then refuses to go, for she has nothing to wear.
