The Question and Answer section for The Necklace is a great resource to ask questions, find answers, and discuss the novel.
The Necklace is set in the beautiful city of Paris in the country of France, during the late 1800s.
The necklace which they gave Mme. Forestier was actually replacing a piece of costume jewelry. They paid for ten years to replace something that was hardly worth one or two days of Mme. Loisel's husband's salary.
Monsieur Loisel is not materialistic. He isn't worries about parties, clothing, or having more than what they already he have. He's all about trying to make his wife happy.
