What Happened in the diamond necklace affair?

 The diamond necklace affair was a scandal that took place in France during the 18th century. It involved a young woman named Jeanne de la Motte, who claimed to have purchased a diamond necklace from a jeweler on behalf of Queen Marie Antoinette. However, when the jeweler presented the bill to the queen, she refused to pay, claiming she had never ordered such a thing. This created a huge scandal, with many people accusing the queen of being wasteful and out of touch with her subjects. The affair ultimately led to the downfall of Marie Antoinette and her husband, King Louis XVI.
