Answers

The theme in The Necklace is that of not being true to oneself. Mathilde believes that she was 'born' to be a wealthy woman. She considers her comfortable middleclass lifestyle to be beneath her. Yet, when she loses even that, she realizes what being poor truly means and that, in the end, she would have been better off seeing the goodness in the life she had been living before the Necklace.
