What would have happened to Matilda if she had confessed to her friend that she had lost her necklace?
Had Matlida confessed to her friend about the lost necklace, the Loisel’s suffering would have been easily avoided. The truth would have made her friend upset. However, she would have told the Loisels that it was not a true diamond necklace and that its cost was not more than five hundred francs. Loisels could have easily paid this amount to Mme Loisel’s friend.
Since the Loisels took the necklace to be a real one, they purchased a real diamond necklace with the same design by borrowing money. Due to the debt, Mr. and Mrs Loisel had to lead a very difficult life for ten years.
