"The Necklace"

Introduction: Over the years, I have read hundreds of short stories. In this blog, I am going to summarize as many of them as I can. The summaries do not do the stories justice. If you like the summary of the story, read it. RayS.

Short Story: “The Necklace.” Guy de Maupassant.”

10-second review: Impoverished woman borrows a necklace to go to a party, loses it, buys a true diamond necklace to return to the woman who lent it to her, takes ten years to pay for the replacement and learns in the end that the necklace she had borrowed had only been costume jewelry which had cost very little.
