Hey, Wouldn't it be cool if they had Pirates of the Caribbean settings- just in case we find that elusive black pearl?

I love my pearl ring -- picked the pearl and had it set in white gold with "diamond?" chips. It was beautiful and delicate looking. I think total was $125 and it was our 21st wedding anniversary.

My pearl was 7mm, pink. I loved it!

But those necklaces are so pretty too. Hmmmm, I had not planned to do pick a pearl in Feb but I might!

Like another poster mentioned, it does seem to turn on my finger (top heavy) but I have gotten used to it. I do not wear it every day and never get it into too soapy of water but I DO have to wash my hands on occasion! It still looks nice - wearing it about once a week since November.

The person who shucked it did this whole birth ceremony and told us that this pearl was from a boy oyster. Don't know if this is really true but here's the sentimental part. I had been an infertility patient for a loooong time and had given up. Three months after this trip, I found out I was pregnant with a little boy! I love that ring and will always remember my "special moment"
Congratulations! What a beautiful story. Getting that wonderful news would definitely have brought me back to three months earlier in Disney as well. There is certainly alot to be said for pixie dust!!

This is sooo interesting...when we were at EPCOT in Nov we were in Japan to get some origami paper and I saw and heard the commotion around the tank. I thought it was fixed..well I have changed my mind after reading this thread so thanks!

What kind of pearls are these? Freshwater?? Akoya??

Wait, so that's how much the pearl itself costs? And the settings range in price?

So is there anyway it could be under 100$ for the whole thing?

Absolutely! You can get a very nice one for under $100...some have reported settings for $25 so that would be around $40.

I am taking my 3 girls for christmas this year. this sounds like such a great idea for a christmas gift for each of them. It is a girls only trip and I think it is something that they will always remember. Thank you for this thread-I can't wait to suprise them with this.

I got back on Wednesday from WDW and I am now the proud owner of a BEAUTIFUL pearl and "diamond" ring. I love my ring. I picked a pearl and got a perfect 7mm ring with a slight pink tint. However, for the setting I picked, it was too big. I had to swap it with a pearl that they had in the back. I got to pick which pearl I wanted. My kids birthstones are pearl and diamond, so I really wanted a ring with both.

It is set in white gold. I have a small finger, so I was VERY surprised that they had a ring in a 4. DH was surprised to see how much they setting was... but it was our anniversary trip, so he was happy to get it for me.

We just got back and I would definitely recommend DTD for settings. The selection is MUCH better than Japan. We picked our pearls in Japan (they make more of a ceremony out of it which my daughter loved). My daughter got a butterfly pendant (sterling silver for 19.99...not inc. chain or pearl) in Japan. It was SO hot in there, I waited to look for settings for the two I picked. I escaped to Downtown Disney one night without the kids and was amazed at the selection the Pearl Factory had to offer...see Jen! I got a really cute lizard (sterling) and crab (14K gold) and LOVE them.
