The crab is 14K and was $99 (this does not include a chain). He is SO cute and worth the price. I love him

I don't think BB was open during your Honeymoon but I could be wrong! I remember a '99 opening date.

Do they make the same pendtants in different "karat" categories? For instance, could I get the crab at a "lower quality karat" and therefore a cheaper price?
The DTD location seemed to have more white gold and 14K gold and just a few sterling silver pendants. I only looked at pendants...not rings or earrings. They also had a sterling dolphin that was beautiful. She had a ton of other gold animals too...white and yellow gold. The turtle was adorable and I forget what some of the others were. She had a white gold crab (bigger than mine) that was already set with a fresh water pearl and it was SOOOO tempting I had to have my two set and run away fast before I spent the bank!! I definitely recommend DTD for selection and service...the variety was amazing. They also have tons of pearl jewelry already made up if you're just looking for a pretty pearl piece without picking one. They had really neat "yellow" pearls and lots of black pearls too. I also heard the guy next to me ask if they had loose yellow pearls and she said yes. TONS to choose from there. Have fun!

This is from 2003. It is 7 1/4 MM and we had the mount added when we bought the pearl. The push pin is for size comparison.

Yay!
I can't wait to stop by Japan and pick out an oyster!!!
Did anyone ever say if the CM's will tell you which ones are the black oysters? I think I'll have to print out those pictures and bring them with me so I can try and pick a black oyster!
DH & I last visited WDW 16 years ago, for our first anniversary....so I think he might owe me a little something now, huh?!?!?

Two questions ...

1. Has anyone used their pearl as a charm on a charm bracelet?

2. Is it true that they "pre-load" the oysters w/the pearls? I thought I read/heard that the oysters were dead and they opened them up and placed the pearls inside them. Anyone have any idea if this is true or not?

Oh me too, me too!! Printing those pics is a plus!! I'm so bad because I think I want to find one of each color!!! Hahaha, at DTD I'll be like "Oh look Honey, that looks fun!", at Epcot "Oh Sweetie, DD needs one too!" at Typhoon Lagoon "....uh...who'd have thought they'd have another booth here ....early birthday present?!?!!!" Hehehehe, I cannot wait!!!!

I have heard that they insert grains of sand in the oysters so that they make a pearl, but I've never heard of them putting a whole pearl inside a 'dead' oyster. I don't think that is the procedure.

The pictures and information is so great!! 32 days until my pearl....hoping for a black one! I am wondering about if the CM help tell you which are black oysters like bkyrdmoviemom wondered. I second the printing out the pictures from this thread of what the black oysters look. They will laugh at me comparing the picture I printed out with the oysters in the tank I'm sure, but oh well! I'm not shy and don't care who thinks I'm nutty )

My dh surprised me on our 15th anniversary trip last year by picking a pearl at the Downtown Disney location. They were very nice about it, and had lots of beautiful settings.

The one I *loved* was (ulp!) over $500 ... it was 14K and tiny channel-set diamonds ... gorgeous!! But, since my dh was still in possession of his senses (for the most part anyway), I settled (LOL) for a really pretty one that they called the "Infinite Love" pendant. It is a continuous 14K swirl w/a diamond chip. The whole deal was just over $270.

I bought the chain when we got home from Corey's at the mall.

Wow Amy! That is really pretty! Thanks for posting the price too as it gives me some idea of what to expect.

I didn't do the Pick a Pearl last trip as I just had that Mom guilt going on...you know, I can't spend THAT on ME!! But this time I've decided to do it, a treat to me!

You should definitely do it! I wear my necklace almost every day ... maybe for our 20th I'll get a ring to match -- or even get lucky and get "twins" for earrings.
