They are $15. I heard the one at the M shop in Japan is the best because they do a little ceremony when they open it. You could search through youtube to find some videos.

My daughter and I went back to Japan to have our pearls set today. I traded my 7 mm white pearl for her 7 3/4 mm blue pearl b/c she wanted a dolphin charm and there is a 7 mm size limit on it. It's actually a phone charm, but it has a lobster claw on it and she put it on a $7 silver chain we bought from www.n o m o r e r a c k.com

I did this in December on our honeymoon trip. I really wanted the carriage cage. The first oyster I pick I went for an ugly hairy one and got a huge 8 3/4 mm pinkish pearl - the biggest for the day - but it wouldn't fit in the carriage cage so I got it mounted in something that would hold that large pearl. So.... I tried again, this time I went for a prettier oyster since I needed at 7 1/4 mm pearl or smaller for the carriage cage. Well I ended up with a real gold pearl that measured 7 1/4 mm just barely small enough for the carriage charm. I lucked out and got 2 pearls and 2 settings.

Is the Cinderella carriage in Japan (the sterling silver one) a cage or does the pearl have to be set in it?

It's a cage. No setting required.

I am just getting interested in possibly picking a pearl. Does the pearl have to be treated w anything before you put it into any kind of cage or setting? I thought I read that someones pearl turned green? Thanks for any help!

They just rub the pearl in salt once and only then before setting it. They say not to get perfume or lotion on the pearl when you are wearing it. Don't know why someone's pearl would turn green?

The pearl didn't turn green, the person's skin did because the cages on eBay are not real silver, so your skin will turn green from wearing them.

Thanks for the help! I was reading a bunch of posts late last night about this using my phone and I must have misread it. I thought the person said the pearls turned green!

Great! Thank you! I'm guessing that since its a cage anyone can buy it without picking a pearl first? The reason I'm asking is my dd and I picked a pearl a few years ago and didn't have them set. We had purchased the cheap cages from eBay and then they turned. We're going back in June and want to pick a pearl again and have our new pearls sets. We would love to buy a cage for our older pearls. I would have the older ones set also, but wasn't sure they would do that.

Yes, you can purchase cages and put your old pearls in them. From what I understand, they will only set pearls purchased from them, so maybe they will set the old ones for you if you happen to have your receipt! I've seen so many people mention the cheap cages on eBay, but they are not real silver and will likely turn like yours did. You will love the "real" cage. It's beautiful!

ebay

27 days till I arrive in Disney and I ordered my pearl cage on ebay. Mine is sterling silver, just read the descriptions to be sure yours is sterling, if that's what you want. I've been to WDW 4 times and just now heard of this pick a pearl. I am so excited! I got a flower cage for me and my 3 year old daughter, so we'll have matching necklaces. Thanks Diss boards!

I'm pretty sure if you read all of the posts on this thread, you will see pictures and prices of most of the settings.

I did this many years ago when I visited Hawaii, but I'm excited to take my daughter and choose new pearls during our visit in September. Previously I got a pretty white one which I set on a whale tail pendant, and a silvery blue one which I had set on a fairly simple ring. My goal is blue or black this time (although I will be happy with any pearl I get), and DS has offered to pick out my oyster, because he tells me he "knows ugly"!
