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.
Where exactly is the Pearl Factory in DTD? Is it in the Marketplace or on the West Side? Is it just a kiosk or an entire store? Or is it a counter inside of a larger store? I'm planning on picking a pearl when we go in October, and if I don't like any of the Japanese settings, I'd like to have it done at the Pearl Factory. Any information on its location would be wonderful! Thanks in advance!

Last year when we went they were on the Marketplace side, in a kiosk. I don't remember exactly where the kiosk was though.

I am pretty sure it was just after Captain Jack's a little ways (if you are walking toward Legoland)...we stopped there after we got off the boat from POFQ.

The girl who was working the stand recognized my ring as being one of theirs...it was, DH got it for me for our 28th anniversary in 2002 at the stand in AK. I was amazed she knew that...I was just pointing out a setting to my mom and she noticed it on my hand, and said, "Oh, you are wearing one of OURS!" I thought it was kind of funny because when we got the ring the girl made sure we knew the setting was exclusive to them! I guess it is

What is an approximate cost of getting a ring made with the pearl in a 10 or 14K gold setting?

I actually just had to comment on one of your tags... about the 3 sec rule not counting if the chocolate falls in the toilet. LOL

I have a 2 1/2 yr old DS... oh the fun I know I'm in for!

Had a busy day... this board is always good to put a smile on my face.

It's a stand alone kiosk in Marketplace.

LOL!! Yup, it was pretty funny actually & yup, it was about my (then) almost three year old son!! I think only the day before he had dropped a cookie on the floor which I promptly grapped up & said that it was totally fine, 3 sec rule. So, of course, next day, chocolate falls into toilet bowel & son promptly reaches into toilet & says, 3 SEC RULE!!!

My sons are only 1 1/2 years apart so I had lots of "fun" in those early years!!! Seriously though Lighttech, it goes so fast, just enjoy it while you can & breath deeply on those "busy days"!!

Glad I made you smile!

Does anyone have a picture of the Lucky Cat setting? My DD's birthstone is Pearl and my DW and I actually purchased a lucky cat in the Japan Pavilion last October (the cat was supposed to be for a healthy birth) so I'm thinking it might be a good present for my DW for Christmas this year.

After seeing this thread... I'm DEFINATELY interested in this! I do have a couple of questions though...

I'll admitt that I did read over the 7 pages (but in pieces) so if these questions have been answered already... please just direct me to the post

1) How much is it to "shuck" the oyster? I know "shuck" isn't the right word... but it's the only word I could think of. I remember that you have to pick the ugliest one though!

2) Once I have a pearl... how much is it to get it set in a pendant? As nice as those rings are... I'm more of a necklace girl! I'd like for my mom and I to get matching pendants... and if so... do we get a chain with it?

3) Has anyone checked on the Pick-a-pearl booth at Typhoon Lagoon? I was noticing that the Dis updated there photo page with some pics of the park... one of which being a pretty nice booth for this.

Any help would be appreciated!

Here are a few pictures I took when my DD8 did Pick a Pearl in Japan last September:





We didn't have time to chose a setting (had to get to the airport to catch our flight but didn't want to leave Epcot without doing this). My DD didn't mind, she proudly shows her friends her REAL PEARL which is still in the baggie they sent us home with. I plan on letting her do this again in November but next time, we'll have it set.
