French drama directed by Max Ophuls and based on the novel by Louise de Vilmorin. The film revolves around an 18th century Countess named Louise (Danielle Darrieux) who sells off the earrings given to her as a wedding gift from her officer husband in order to clear some debts. This action sets in motion a number of events that jeopardise her social position and threaten to destroy her marriage while the earrings pass through several hands, travelling as far as Constantinople before coming full circle and returning to Paris and Louise in the possession of Baron Donati (Vittorio De Sica).
