Nope, those have to be purchased on ebay. They don't sell them at either location.

Me neither, but they should do some shouldn't they. Perhaps a Mickey Head cage setting, or Tink standing on top of the pearl maybe.

I don't think the Oysters are alive and I presume that they come from Oyster farms, so are bred specifically for the pearl purpose. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong guys.

Wow, ok. I just read through this entire thread, and I have a question that I don't remember seeing an answer for (or maybe it was... but around page 40, it started to blur....)

PAP in Japan doesn't seem to have a problem with people bringing their own cages, but what about actual settings? I have a double pearl pendant that lost one pearl years ago, and I'm wondering if I can get a pearl there, and have them set it on my used pendant for me?

I have a funny feeling that when I go in April.. I won't be able to stop at one pearl.

We did the PAP at the Beach Club resort, down by their pool. My 4 year old took the oyster choosing quite seriously...but ended up with a 7.5mm pearl! I trained her well. We had a lovely princess crown in 14K gold with a tiny diamond attached to the top and a 16 inch gold box chain added. It was $192 total. I thought that was very reasonable for everything. Not cheap, of course, but not outrageous either.

Just back and we picked 3 pearls in japan

I picked a pearl in DTD last time we went to Disney in Feb 2008 (silver 7mm i think). Since I knew we were going back and my girls had showed interest i planned in advance for them to pick pearls themselves. I ordered a Cinderella carriage cage for my DD9 and a Fish cage for my DD 15 off Hydia Pearl.com
We went to the japan PAP station on Sunday Jan 31st and purchased 2 oysters one for each girl. They picked their own oysters and the lady kept track of whose was whose.
DD9 went first and picked a very dark but rather small oyster it contained a rare silver blue 7mm pearl.
DD15 picked a larger oyster that was "hairy" looking and got a 7 1/4 mm pearl in a pale pinkish cream. She really wanted a "colored" pearl and was disappointed that her little sister got the rare silver.
Since my mother had asked for a pearl for her birthday We went back on Feb 4th and let DD15 pick again. We told her she could pick between her first pearl or this one and we would give Nana the other. She picked an oyster (I didnt really take much notice of this oyster so i dont recall what it looked like) and inside was a pure cream 7 and 1/2 mm pearl.
DD15 kept her original pick.
The experiance was more entertaining at Japan but the wait can be long. In DTD almost no one is at the little stand and you are able to take your time and not get crowded out. It was difficult to take pictures as the crowd really presses in in Japan when the ladies start banging the gong thing.

Go to ebay and in the search engine put in pearl cage. Make sure you are searching in jewelry & watches. I just did a search and found several coach settings. As a matter of fact, here's the link to my search: http://jewelry.shop.ebay.com/i.html?...gs&_osacat=281

I did this in Japan when I was 16. I ended up with a beautiful pearl that looks almost silver/purple. It's gorgeous. I took it home and never set it. Then, at about age 30, my husband surprised me by setting it in a ring w/a diamond on each side.

Quick warning about some of the eBay cages - I got one of the crown ones, and within two weeks the silver plating had worn off the back of the charm, where it rubbed against my sweater. I'm not sure if there are solid sterling silver ones on eBay, but you might want to consider those if they're there. I have not tried the Cinderella coach ones - they may be by a different manufacturer. Maybe others can comment on those?

Edited to add: I just went back onto eBay to refresh my memory, and it was the white gold plated (WGP) charm that lost the plating so quickly. There were some cute sterling silver ones - I'd recommend sticking to those.

I have a question my girls and I had done the PAP in Japan last Dec. I picked 2 wanting to make earings for my DD but one was 8 mm and pink the other was 7 and cream so she decided to just make a necklace wiht the large one. I thought I had lost the other one but just discovered it the other day. DH and I are going to WDW for our anniversary and I want to do the PAP if I get one that matches the other one would they set both of them or just the one that I picked when I am there then? It would be cool to surprise my DD with the earings she wanted.

I read on this thread, I think, that clear nail polish on the WGP carriage charm should slow down the wearing off of the plating.

Unicorn setting available at WDW?

My DD4 loves unicorns. She would be thrilled if we could pick a pearl and put it in a unicorn setting. Does anyone know of anything available at WDW? We would love to see a picture if possible.

Thanks!

You definitely don't have to have them set immediately after you do the PAP. During our 2009 trip, we picked pearls on a couple of different days and then had a necklace and earrings made on yet another day. We had the same issue with wanting 2 pearls that matched in size and colour for the earrings.

If you have the original plastic bag with the size and date on it, it would be worth taking it along and asking. The worst they can say is that they can't do it!
