Finding theme

Today we defined theme as “Insight or main idea about life that the story communicates.”  We also watched the first 2 1/2 minutes of this clip about how theme is not just a word, but more of a lesson or statement about a subject:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4qME64SkxM

Then we read “The Necklace” and discussed its theme as well as a bit of what irony means (more on that next week).  Here is a copy of the story:  http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/Neck.shtml

What are some themes the author is trying to communicate?
