    That was indeed awesome research - call me skeptical - but I really believe they know exactly how many "twin" "black" etc as well as size pearls they put out there at one time - maybe thru Xray the oysters?? :confused3

    We also did this, and absolutely love the pearls and the settings, dd was definately "addicted" I think she picked 3 pearls, all were over 7mm - and she just saved them for the next time we go to Disney!!

    I also thought I could get away with NOT having dd pick a pearl and setting - I googled and found a place (I believe it was jtv.com btw - and from there I searched their site with "WISH pearl) online and bought the wish pearl for $9.99 it came with an oyster in a can of alcohol water, and a necklace (dolphin) You just put your pearl in the basket of the dolphin, close it, and then the chain goes through the hole holding the basket together!

    (and I cant believe they also dont know the size of the pearls they are shipping out... but again, I'm may just be skeptical - I still think its a great deal!)

    OK - I just checked that site and they do have the wish pearl, right now its $15.99 plus S&H but honestly they have sales and free shipping all the time -

    I actually bought enhanced black pearls for $5 - there was a special 4 sterling silver backed post earrings 1 Black, 1 peach, 2 white for $19.99 - google black pearls there is a gorgeous Tahitian Black pearl set for $99!

    Has anyone seen a 'lucky cat' pendant for putting the pearl into? It is a Japanese cat so I'm hoping they have it at the Japan location. I just saw one at jtv.com that kikiq posted a link to and I thought it was adorable.

    Just curious if anyone had seen one :) .

    Thanks!

    When I got my Wish Pearl back in Aug of '02 in the WS, I got the lucky cat necklace. :goodvibes

    Also, I found a eBay store that sells the Wish Pearls, you can find them in singles or in lots. I ordered some thru them for my future SIL's.

    I'm pretty sure it was a 18" necklace. I believe (memory isn't so great!) it was $19.95 or $29.95. Cannot remember for sure. I know it was silver and the cage for the pearl was in the cat's tummy. :)

    Can anyone post anymore pics of their pearls? Would be great to see.

    So how much is it to "pick a pearl"?

    bumping also;) . I have been enjoying this thread quite a lot!!

    I've warned my husband that I am getting a pearl in Japan w/ the lucky cat pendant. I guess I warned him mainly b/c of the drum-banging and such that goes on after you pick the pearl. That way he has fair warning to be at the other end of the store so he can pretend he doesn't know me :rotfl2: . I think it would make him feel a little silly, but I love that kind of thing and so will my girls!! I will try for a black pearl also!! I hope they have black pearls when we go in.

    Will the CM's help you tell the different kinds of oysters if you ask?

    Thanks!!

    Missy

    I was going to wait until I figured how to post a picture, but my son did this for my mom and me. He picked 2 oysters, both were white 7mm. I got it in the gold cage and he picked out a small diamond crystal with a small birthstone for her that the pearl needed to be drilled..my moms is beautiful..it is so delicate.:thumbsup2

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

    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! :thumbsup2

    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.

    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!! :goodvibes
