I ordered from this source and received last week. Love it! Much better in person than in the picture.

While my wife was pregnant, we visited Epcot and decided to do the pick a pearl thing in Japan. Well we picked the nastiest, ugliest oyster in the tank which was buried under a few other oysters. Well we got twin pearls 10mm each silver in color. We had them set there in white gold. The lady joked that we were also having twins which was not funny at all (made me nervous). Well thankfully we did not have twins and we used the pearl earings for my daughters first piercing.

At Blizzard Beach last month, I was shown a white gold and diamond pearl setting in the shape of a tiara. I've been kicking myself for not buying it since I left. Any idea if I could get one shipped from Disney or buy one somewhere else? I've been googling my heart out but I can't seem to put together the right search.

Same here!!! I've noticed them before and watched people pick their pearls at the Japanese Pavilion for a little bit last year but never did it. I think this year I may have to!

That location is operated by Pearl Factory. Here is their website: http://www.pearl-factory.com/

It says that it is temporarily down for maintenance, but there is an email address on there. Maybe you can email them?

Setting at home?

Love the carriage charm, but won't have time to order it and have it delivered before my trip. Can the pearls be set at home?

If you are using the carriage, there is not "setting." It is just a cage that opens up and you put the pearl inside. The chain goes through a loop to hold the cage closed.

Thanks. Trying to do the trip on a budget so it's good to know I can save a little by buying from home.

I have heard that they now have a Sterling Silver Cinderella carriage at the Japan pavilion. I got a white gold plated Cinderella carriage from Ebay a couple of years ago.

My pearl is 7 1/4. Will it be too large if I order a cage made for a 6-7 mm pearl? Just wondering how close the tolerances are, since the design I really like says it is for a 6-7 pearl. Does anyone know? Thanks for any help you can provide.

My pearl was 6 3/4 and I bought the cinderella carriage in Japan. I feel like my pearl just fits, but I'm not sure what the recommended size is for the carriage. I don't think anything larger than a 7 would comfortably fit.

@jdcthree
was the carriage you purchased in Japan sterling silver?
we went 2 years ago and i purchased a carriage off ebay...i saw on another post a picture of one in the Japan pavilion, but no one knew if it was a "good" piece of jewelry or not.
the one I got off ebay has lost all its shine and coating...it was cheap...
i'd like to replace it when we go next week if they have sterling silver
thanks
