How small do the ring run? I wear a 3.5 on my ring finger and averag sized rings (ie. size 7) can't always be sized down because it can alter the setting, etc.
I'd love a ring but I would like it to fit!

Wow, thanks to this thread I can't wait to do this in May! The pics and info are great! I'm so excited about doing this and wonder how I've missed this every other time I've been in Disney! I think I'll get a ring and maybe a necklace too. I've always loved pearls! I'm also thinking of maybe bringing one back for my Mother and Grandmother as gifts. I'm so excited I can't wait to pick a pearl! Thanks so much for the info it's making my wait more bearable and exciting! Gotta love the Dis!

Anyone know if they have clip-on earing settings? Or sell clip-ons? Grandma would love some.

They need a pearl cage that looks like a Mickey head... unless there is one and I haven't seen it in this thread.

I don't think there is... I did read about one on the Cruise maybe? Someone can correct me if I'm wrong. They really do need to offer that- I don't think they realize how much they could make off of those!

We didn't know our ring sizes when we went and they had the set of rings to check your size. I would assume that they have smaller sizes in stock but I'm not 100% sure. My youngest is 11 and she got a ring that fits her ... can't remember her exact size but her fingers are pretty small, I had her fit it to her pointer finger so she can keep wearing it as she grows.

Hello Ladies!

Okay….I have read through all 52 pages of this thread and I have seen lot’s of great comments on this. I can tell that there are some real experts out there…please help me!!!
I just opened a "pick a pearl" type kiosk. I was wondering if all you could give me some needed insight on some new ways to market my product.

If you have bought why, and if not why not?

What you liked, what you disliked about the experiance, products, service?

What about the pricing....product to value?

What you would like to see product wise?

If you had a frequent punch card would that encourage you to want to come back to buy more often?

Birthday-anniversary list coupons? Mailing a postcard or email promo code?

If you could do it as a home party to earn free pearls and settings, would you?

I need new and fresh ideas on promotions and sales!

I am looking for ways to market the idea for men's products. My husband said that cufflinks are really coming back. He suggested a cage style to change the color of the pearl with the suite and shirt and tie. Would you or your husband or male associate purchase something like this?

Children’s items, what's your thoughts on that?

I need some Point of Sale products. Quick sales at the register, any ideas?

I know I am asking a lot of questions, but since most of you have an interest in the "pick a pearl" idea as have I for about 10 years. My first one I ever bought was in DTD. I've literally been "hooked" ever since!!

I really would appreciate some honest and creative feedback. The marketing seems to be the same everywhere I go...what else we can do to shake it up.

Let your thoughts and opinions be heard to shape the idea we all love!

THANK YOU.....THANK YOU....THANK YOU!!


Katherine

I did 'Pick A Pearl' in September of 2008. I got a beautiful ring that went really well with another ring I have. I tried to take care of it, but unfortunately a few weeks ago the pearl part of the ring fell off.

Does anyone have an idea to get it back on? My finger misses this ring!

I had a pearl break off the setting. I brought it back to the pick a pearl and they could not do anything because the post had broken off inside the pearl. I ended up buying a cage to put it in. We are heading back to Disney later today and I want to get another ring. It will be my 50th birthday while we are down there so I would love a ring for my birthday. Unfortunately, I cannot use my birthday gift card for this.

we just got back and did the pick a pear in Japan. it was fantastic. the women was wonderful and did a great little opening show. Cassandra picked 2 shells and it began.

when it was over we had 1 pinky cream 7.5mm and 1 silver blue 7.75 pearl. the lady said that only 5% are silver so my lovely daughter picked a great one for me.

we put both of them in the cinderella carriage cage and wore them the rest of our trip.

Did you take your own carriages or did they have them there? How expensive are they? My DD and I would like to do one when we are there in 3 weeks.

Cant answer all your questions. I am planning to pick a pearl in August at Epcot. But, you did mention parties at home and I had a thought. If you had some reasonable childrens selections this would be a great Birthday party. I would offer Birthday parties. Many parents (like myself) will go to any length to make their childs Birthday special. With all the Build a Bear, Princess parties, ect... I think a pick a pearl party would be a hit. Good luck with your business.

Did you bring your own chain or do they have them there?

Do you by any chance have the site? I found a site with some white gold plated for about 3.50 but there were no chains. I think they were from Washington state. They looked cute but would like to get chains.
