It's Jazz-Era 1920s and Ambrose Quincy leaves May, the woman he loves, to take an extended trip to India. Upon his return, bringing May an exotic necklace, he is stunned to find that she's married to his brother. As she wears her gift their passion for each other is never far from view, and her reason for marrying is slowly revealed. The Necklace moves back and forth between the 1920s and the 21st century where Nell Quincy, estranged from her extended family, has been summoned to the run-down family mansion to act as executor to her great aunt's estate. Simmering family resentments boil over when it's revealed that a heretofore unknown and, as it turns out valuable, necklace has been left to Nell. Her efforts to determine the provenance of the necklace uncover unwelcome family secrets and, in the process, Nell discovers her own strong path forward.
