Hoping so. DW will be teaching when DS and I go off to spend some time with my family for the marathon weekend period. He and I will likely go over and make this her souvenir for the trip, regardless. But if I can get it with my Visa rewards dollars, so much the better.

Hope this helps...pick a good one
We bought one of the cage pendants for our daughter while visiting in September. It was her birthday present. The lady at the stand saw her wearing her birthday pin and told us she would let her pick out her own pearl at no charge. While there, our daughter saw the Cinderella's carriage necklace pendant, so we bought her the pendant. We just open up the pendant, put the pearl inside the carriage, and close it back up. The pearl floats freely inside.

We would love to do this with our kids in a couple weeks. I'm trying to figure out if they actually sell the carriage cages at the Japan location, or if I need to buy them from ebay like someone mentioned.

Is there any sort of master list or website that actually shows what settings/options they have available at the japan location?
My daughter's carriage cage was purchased at The Pearl Factory in Downtown Disney.

Beautiful pearl

Did the pick a pearl today at Epcot for the first time and per the suggestions of the DIS boards I picked the hairest ugly pearl I could find..drum roll please It was a beautiful 7mm gray pearl I got it set in a sterling silver ring and now it is wrapped and under the Christmas tree since my DS wanted it to be from him..it was so much fun..they made a really big deal out of the color told me that only 1 percent is that color..I know it was the only one I saw of that color and I was there an hour watching. The price is 15.95 to pick a pearl I thought it was 14.95 but still a great bargain and lots of fun..Happy picking

I'm sorry if I miss your previous posts on this- just not sure why we should not do DTD or BB locations.

I picked my first pearl this past Tuesday and was pleasantly surprised when I got a 8mm silver-blue pearl. It is just beautiful. Matches my son's eyes perfectly!!!

My son was so excited by this whole process that when we were in Epcot on Fri he spent the last of his money to pick another pearl for me and we got a 7mm gold colored pearl. He is such a sweet little boy!!! Maybe I should say big boy now that he is 13, lol. He is going to make someone a great husband one day!!!

The lady working asked me what my secret was for picking the silver/blue pearl. She was so cute and asked if I could pick for her next time. She was very excited when she saw it and got more excited when she measured it. She said it was the biggest pearl of the day! I thought I was lucky because it seems to change colors depending on what light your under, sometimes silver sometimes purple, sometimes it even has a greenish tint. The more I look at it the more I love it, lol. And the one my son picked just glows with a golden kind of rose color. I need to find a setting for that one since we didn't have time that day to do it there.

I finally got to do this when we were there 2 weeks ago (wow, that long ago, really?). I got a 6 3/4 pearl, very pretty. But I never had time to get it set or even look.....will do this somewhere at home, I guess.

I got the one on eBay. Actually...got 4 of them since they were so inexpensive. Here is the link...

http://cgi.ebay.com/18K-WGP-PEARL-CA...item43a33e071a

It's $3.50. My DD8 did this last week when we were there. SHe chose a beautiful 7 1/4" pearl and it fit just fine. Comes with a chain too.
