Did I pay too much?

I just bought the DCL mickey off ebay but I paid $45 and I see that it sold on the ship for $30. Did I pay too much?

It came with a chain and a pearl which I am going to change out when I go to Japan but I'm worried that I impulse bought something and paid too much.

I know in Japan at the pick a pearl they offer the Cinderella cage which is pretty pricey. I also have read about buying a Cinderella cage on Ebay for 4.50. I'm not sure if the quality is the same or not. However for those who have brought their own setting, is it easy to put the pearl in yourself, or will they do it for you?

From what I have read on this thread, the one they sell at EPCOT is sterling silver. The one on ebay for such a low price is not sterling silver. People say it is really easy to put the pearl in the cage.

yes, the one at epcot is sterling and I think it was $50 which is pricey for such a tiny little thing. The one off ebay is not sterling but I bought 2 of them in 9/2010 and they still look pretty good. Not quite as shiny as new but nice. IHaving said that, I think I'm going to splurge on the sterling ones for myself and my dd on our next trip! I really love that little coach and my dd, now age 4, wears hers pretty regularly.

When my friends and I were at WDW in October we went to DTD to pick our pearls. The one friend and I have a tradition that when we go on vacation we pick a pearl (we did this in Vegas last March). I have always been told to pick the biggest and ugliest oyster. At DTD we got two different ones that fit our personalities perfectly. I wear gold and she always wears silver. Here is my pearl and setting (which the lady sold us on because she said that we were princesses):

Hi
I purchased two of the cinderella cages about 2 years ago off Ebay...I put the first pearl I ever picked in one of the cages...2 years later, it still looks beautiful. I though the quality was just as nice and half the price
I do not wear mine everyday, however...It's basically a silver chain with silver carriage...you could always swap out the chain if you wanted to....

The chain and the mickey are sterling silver so maybe it isn't as bad as I thought. I have wanted one since I saw it on this post.

I was researching pearl cages on ebay today and ran across one that could be considered a Mickey head. I don't have enough posts to post a link but the seller is fivecatsandafurrywhitedog.

I haven't bought from this person but will probably get my and DD's carriage pendants from them. Hope this helps someone!

(I'll try to remember to come back and post the actual link when I get to 10 posts. )

I've scanned through, but have not read the entire thread, so please forgive me if this has already been discussed and answered:

What is the average cost of a ring setting and a simple necklace (not a cage, just a dangle or something like that)

This is the perfect gift to bring home to both my mom and my MIL

ETA: Found a list of pictures and prices on p 116, :D

Oh no ...now I went to easywdw and found the pics and see what looks like a flower cage! Am I correct that it is a cage? If it is I may want that instead.
