But sometimes, when her husband was at the office, she sat down by the window and she thought of that evening long ago, of that ball, where she had been so beautiful and so admired.

 The Heart Necklace - Bewitched @ Harpies Bizarre
Only the chain is seen in the pilot episode due to the style of clothing that Samantha wears, but the necklace is seen in episode #2 through #101.

She felt she could not attend the Minister's party without a stylish dress and jewels because she was vain; she should never have sought to borrow a necklace so opulent she could not afford to replace it.

 SPLICEDwire | "The Affair of the Necklace" review (2001) Charles Shyer, Hilary Swank
But when such films turn out badly, they turn out like "The Affair of the Necklace," a discombobulated, transparently fictionalized French Revolutionary melodrama about an orphaned, impoverished aristocrat conspiring against the crown to restore her family name and property.
At its best "The Affair of the Necklace" might make you yearn to read a book or find a French film on the same subject to get at the intricacies of these events without the cosmetic eloquence, the questionable performances and elementary filmmaking.
At its worst, Shyer's direction is so uncouth that he cuts away to flashbacks (that we've already seen) of little Jeanne watching her father killed, rather than showing the emotions of the memory play across Swank's incredibly expressive face.

 The Necklace Summary & Essays - Guy de Maupassant
Guy de Maupassant's short story ‘‘The Necklace’’ (‘‘La parure’’) was first published in the Paris newspaper Le Gaulois on February 17, 1884, and was subsequently included in his 1885 collection of short stories Tales of Day and Night (Contes dejour et de la nuit).
In addition to its well-rounded characters, tight plotting, wealth of detail, and keen social commentary, ''The Necklace'' is conspicuous for its use of the "whip-crack" or ‘‘O. Henry’’ ending, in which a plot twist at the end of the story completely changes the story's meaning.
Although it is not known where Maupassant got the idea for his story, certain connections may be made between ‘‘The Necklace’’ and the novel Madame Bovary, written by Maupassant's mentor and friend, Gustave Flaubert.
