'The Necklace': Madame Mathilde Loisel, a pretty young woman, has aspirations of being accepted into high society. When her husband, a clerk in the Ministry of Public Instruction, brings home an invitation to attend a Ball at the Ministry, she is overwhelmed at the excitement - although, at the same time, anxious that she does not possess an appropriate dress or jewels to wear at the Ball. Her husband gives her four hundred francs to buy "… a really pretty gown". However, when she borrows a diamond necklace from her friend, Madame Forestier, her world, and that of her husband, is turned upside down.
