I purchased the Cinderella carriage in Epcot when we did pick a pearl in August. Yes it is silver. I believe there is also a tiny stamp on the back as well.

Yes, the carriage sold in Japan is sterling silver. It's even more beautiful in person!

Just wanted to say thanks for this thread! Just got back from WDW tonight and my sister and I did Pick-A-Pearl on Saturday (it was my christmas present to her). I told her the tip about picking the biggest ugliest hairest one and I got twins (6.5 and 6.75mm) and my sister got the biggest pearl of the day! 9mm! Everyone was like "you are both so lucky!" Little did they know I owe it all to the DisBoards.

I just bought a cheap one from ebay. I think this one:http://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?_nkw=carriage+pearl+cage

I was afraid it would be cheap and break but it is pretty solid. My fiancée loved it.

Here is video of her picking her pearl:http://youtu.be/JqUdyK3E9nY
She really enjoyed it.

Any chance they offer clip on earrings as a setting choice?

During our Oct. trip, we did the pick-a-pearl in Japan. I believe my pearl was 7.5MM and I had it set in the seashell setting. I get many compliments on it. Wish the picture had come out a little clearer, but you get the idea.

It's amazing seeing this post still has people talking

I started it 5 1/2 years ago and pick a pearl has become a tradition every trip we have been on.
Just got back from the world yesterday... Had an amazing time. My daughter picked a beautiful 6 3/4 mm pearl. She has the eBay carriage necklace to place it in.

Hope each of you have had nice experiences making memories at the world... Thanks to the Dis

i picked a pearl when we went at the beginning of february. i had initially really wanted to cinderella carriage but when i saw it in person it was huge, waaaay bigger than expected, and i did not like it. but i had also kind of wanted a ring (before going i wanted to pick two pearls, but then i got there and bought a bunch of other stuff so i was kind of running low on cash!!!). of course the one setting i liked was $80 and i didn't know if i wanted to spend $100 on the whole thing. so i thought about it for a few days and then i ended up returning this mickey quilt i bought so i could go back and pick a pearl. i'm so glad i did! i got a goldish-pink 7 1/4 mm pearl! i had hoped for bigger but the lady told me it was bigger than average so i was happy. i also have pretty small hands and the setting i wanted was very delicate so the size is perfect. when i picked it up later on i saw another ring that was ready to be picked up. it had a BIG pearl maybe 8+ mm and i didn't even like it. it was giant, almost gaudy, maybe it was just the setting but it wasn't for me! anyways, i am really happy with what i got and i am so glad i decided to do it!
