మాటిల్డా  ఒక అందమైన యువతి. ఆమె ఒక పేద ఇంటిలో పుట్టింది. ఆమె భర్త విద్యా మంత్రిత్వ శాఖలో ఉద్యోగి. ఆమెకి విలాసవంతమైన జీవితం గడపడం ఎంతో ఇష్టం. ఒకనాడు ఆమె భర్తకి ఒక పుట్టినరోజు వేడుక ఆహ్వానం అందింది. మటిలా ఆ వేడుకకి హాజరు కావాలనుకుంది.

కానీ మంచి బట్టలు లేకపోవడంతో ఏడవ సాగింది. ఆమె భర్త ఆమెకు సుమారు 400 ఫాంకుల విలువగల దుస్తులు కొన జూపాడు. అయినా మటియీ విచారంగానే ఉంది. ఆమె దగ్గర నగలు లేవు. అయితే, ఆమె స్నేహితురాలు జేన్ ధనికురాలు. ఆమె దగ్గర నుంచి నగలు బదులు తీసుకోవాలనుకుంది మాటిల్డా, ఒక ఖరీదైన వజ్రాల నెక్లెస్ ని బదులు తీసుకుంది.

మాటిల్డా పార్టీకి వెళ్లింది. ఆమె, తన భర్త ఇద్దరూ చాలా సేపు ఆ పార్టీలో నృత్యం చేశారు. తదుపరి ఇంటికి వెళ్లారు. ఇంటిదగ్గర ఆమె మెడలో ఉండాల్సిన నెక్లెస్ కనిపించలేదు. వాళ్లిద్దరూ ఎంత వెతికినా నెక్లెస్ కనిపించలేదు.

మటిల్డా ఆ నెక్లెస్ కి బదులు ఇంకో నెక్లెస్ కొని ఆమె స్నేహితురాలికి ఇవ్వాలని నిర్ణయించుకుంది. అలాంటి ఒక నెక్లెస్ కోసం వెదికారు. అలాంటిదే ముప్పై ఆరువేల ఫ్రాంకుల విలువగల మరో నెక్లెస్ కనిపించింది. ఆమె దగ్గర పద్దెనిమిది వేల ఫ్రాంకుల మాత్రమే ఉన్నాయి. మిగిలిన పద్దెనిమిది వేల ఫ్రాంకులు అప్పుచేసి ఆ నెక్లెస్ కొని ఆ స్నేహితురాలికి తిరిగి ఇచ్చింది.

మాటిల్డా, ఆమె భర్త అప్పు తీర్చడం కోసం పది సంవత్సరాలు చాలా కష్టపడాల్సి వచ్చింది. మాటిల్డా పెద్దదిగా అయిపోయింది. ఒకరోజు ఆమె జేన్ ని దారిలో కలిసింది. ఆమె ఇంకా యవ్వనంలో ఉన్నట్లే ఉంది. జేన్ మాటిల్డా ని గుర్తించలేకపోయింది. మాటిల్డా జేన్  తో ఉన్న విషయమంతా చెప్పింది. జేన్ ఆశ్చర్యపోయింది. తన నెక్లెస్ నిజమైన వజ్రాల నెక్లెస్ కాదని, దాని విలువ ఐదువందల ఫ్రాంకులు మాత్రమేనని చెప్పింది
