It has to be online somewhere already, you can use free image uploading sites like imageshack or tinypic or other services like flickr or photobucket

Sorry if this has been asked, but does every oyster have a pearl of some type? Is it possible to pick one and get nothing?

Yup! Every oyster has at least one pearl in it. I'm sure if you had a freak accident where one didnt have a single pearl. I'm sure theyd let you pick another.

Want to say the advice about ugliest and hairiest worked beautifully. I got an 8 and 1/4 pearl last week. Thanks for the tips!

I did pick a pearl for the first time last week, and had my fiancé pick the oyster. I told him about the ugliest and hairiest advice and wound up getting twin pearls-- 2 pearls in one! Both are 6.5 mm and the same goldish color. I had one set in the carriage necklace, and the other in a simple silver ring setting. I love them!

I am really looking forward to picking pearls with my 16 yr. old granddaughter. It was easy to come up with something special for the smaller grandkids, dinner with the princesses and Star Wars, but had no idea what for her. So glad I found this site or I never would have known about the pearls. Happy to have the tips on how to get a nice one too! I was wondering. Also, just so happy for someone getting a sweet little boy!

We picked two pearls today. I got an average

7 mm, but DD got a 7 3/4 blackish/gray pearl.
She got a lighter blue one in June. Here they are in the raw.

So you can bring your own item with to pick a pearl and have it set in it? Or you have to have it set somewhere else or with what they sell there. Thanks!

They will only set your pearl in a setting bought from them. Many people get pearl cages from Ebay or other sources and you just put your pearl in there with no setting required.

Did you purchase the carriage cage there at Japan? I had read that others purchased their own on ebay. We are going in April and I have wanted to pick a pearl for the first time.
