Oh, no!! Once you get it fixed, please don't wear your pearls in the shower anymore - they are very sensitive, and you can ruin a pearl very easily. Don't even get lotion, hairspray or soap on it! And if you don't want to get it fixed at WDW, head over to Michael's or Hobby Lobby and get a tube of E-6000 glue and fix it yourself - that glue is hardcore. :-)

Pick-a-pearl sounds fun! My dad did that when he and my mom went to Hawaii a few years ago, and even though the company kept steering him towards a certain oyster, he stuck with the one he wanted, and ended up with 2 black pearls inside it! He got earrings made for me, and I love them.

I have to say, this mega-thread has been so inspiring - I have so many things collected from trips, but most of it has been outgrown or just collects dust. These are all so beautiful, I can't wait to pick out my very own ugly, hairy oyster of my very own!

I'd like to know this as well. Do they offer smaller ring sizes like 5 or 6? Whole size only or even 0.5 increments?

I've seen the ceremony at Japan but didn't get it in the past. With this long thread, which I read most of, I really really want one now. I might tell DH that this will be our 5th year anniversary gift.

Hopefully won't be busy when we stop by Japan.

Yes, my 8yo daughter got a ring (with a beautiful 7 mm light blue pearl) in size 4.5 or 5 last week. I believe they start at 4.5 for the plain setting we got her.

We've done pick a pearl four times. Each time, I have gotten a different pendant setting. My daughter picked a simple ring setting. Here's pictures of the three pendants I purchased (sorry I don't have a picture of her ring). The quality isn't that great. I had them sitting on my dresser and they didn't turn out too well. Then I put them on a red towel and it wasn't much better.

The silver Cinderella cage is $49.95 and they carry very few at a time. When I bought mine Friday,there were only 3 left. They're cute, but very flimsy and cheaply made.

I picked up a cinderella carriage cage on ebay for around ten dollars. If you know you are going to pick a pearl and you want that cage, it might be a good idea to just buy the cage before or after the trip.

I'm so glad I came across this thread. I have a few question I hope someone can answer.

I know silver carriage cages can be found on ebay, but has anyone seen any in sterling silver?

I read some people purchase the silver cages and paint them with a thin coat of clear nail polish. Aren't pearls very sensitive, for lack of a better term, and wouldn't the polish hurt the pearl?

Oh, and to the PP, I read they were $17 per oyster, but the prices may have changed since that post.

The cinderella cage you buy in Japan is sterling silver and $49.95. It does not come with a chain, just the pendant. And of course, you purchase the pearl seperately, as well.

Extra Gold Cage

I just won an auction for a white 18KGP (karat gold-plated, I'm assuming) cage, and the seller also sent me a bonus gold one. I know I'm never going to use it, maybe I can meet up with someone in WDW (or I can send it) and I can pass it on to someone who would enjoy it.

Heres a picture of it (it's the gold one),



and the auction I got it from:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/290646909759...9#ht_846wt_753

I'm also looking for a sterling silver coach/carriage - if anyone come across a listing for them, please post it here, thanks!
