Minnie Mickey pearl cages?? (see posts 856 or 900)

Does anyone know if these can still be found on a Disney cruise? We got pearls from Japan when we went in 2010 and I never got a cage for mine. I'd love to have one of the Minnie or Mickey heads when we go on our cruise this year.

Thanks!

I have started a Chamilia charm bracelet. Does anyone know if there is a pearl cage that would fit my bracelet?

I have a pearl ring at Japan years ago and still love it. I thought the charm idea would be a good happy birthday gift to me!

I didn't mean to discourage you. My boyfriend bought mine and I still love it. I just wanted people to realize its a cage, and sort of flimsy. It doesn't look cheap and I'm sure she will love hers too. I just wanted people to realize its not inexpensive and its not necessarily the best quality.

They do have boxes with an oyster and cage at Treasure Ketch, but the cages are fairly generic (flowers, ball, etc). I have never seen a Mickey or Minnie cage on the ships. We have cruised on the Magic and the Wonder since 2008.

Non-jewelry?

It's my first time at Disney in August and I'm wanting to get a pearl to bring back for my mam. However I don't think she would wear it set as a piece of jewelry.

Does anyone know if they do any kind of presentation that isn't in a piece of jewelry? Perhaps a gift box or presentation box?

Thank you

They have simple jewelry gift boxes for (I think) $1.50

Maybe the cellphone charm would work for her. I got a gorgeous dolphin cellphone charm in 2009. I don't use it as a cellphone charm, but it is hanging from a nail in the wall.

I have sat by and watched the CMs in the Japan pavilion proudly display people's pears. It's about darn time I get one too, eh? I still have a pearl in a cage setting that my parents got me at Sea World San Diego from the early 80s. It's really special. I definitely will get one for my daughter when she is older.

I still don't get why Disney doesn't sell special charms etc to go with the pearls. A Mickey/Minnie cage would be awesome. Ariel with a pearl. The possibilities are endless!

I totally agree! I did just buy my daughter and myself 2 Cinderella cages on ebay but I'd much rather have Mickey or Minnie cages.

I may be going to epcot in a few weeks (st.patricks day weekend hopefully!)
I told my boyfriend about this idea and he seemed really supportive.
If I could (my post count isnt high enough, hehe) I would post a photo of all the pearls ive received from disney in the previous years.

I've done it at 3 places, Epcot, Typhoon Lagoon and at the Carribean Resort, while I believe the TL and Carribean Resort are run by a different company the same one in DTD? I've always had a positive experience at those locations.

As for the quality of the pearls, we have lost one pearl that was set in a standard ring (they had warned us that it was a large pearl that it may be dangerous to put it in that ring) So that was our mistake, I have another pearl ring thati s a larger pearl that has a more supportive setting and it has held up beautifully. Our other pearl that we got at TL was worn so much without being taken off that it began to wear the pearl down..

Can someone that has purchased the carriage at EPCOT post a picture of it ? I have the ebay one (love the style) and I have seen the one at the Yacht Club (not my style), but would like one similar to the ebay one in sterling silver.
