Question Pick a Pearl Settings

I have heard & scene a lot about Pick a Peral in Japan at EPCOT, but I am wondering if anyone knows what the average costs are for the different settings you can buy for the pearls. I know it will depend on how "fancy" you want to go, but I am thinking about doing this on our next trip & getting pearls for DD, the baby & me. I know I want an inexpensive ring setting for me & was thinking about either necklaces or earrings for the girls (inexpensive to moderate). Just want to get an idea of about how much I should expect to put away for this. If anyone has any pics of the jewlery they decided on would be greatly appreaciated too. THANKS!

Here's a video of the experience on YouTube:
YouTube - Disney Pearl

There is a thread over at the DISboards where people have posted pics (and sometimes prices) of their settings:
pick a pearl setting - The DIS Discussion Forums - DISboards.com
[You'll have to page through, but there are quite a few pics.]

In terms of prices, they have very reasonable things (in the under $20 range) and then much more expensive settings.

Good luck getting and setting pearls!

Prices definitely range from reasonable to outrageous! DD wanted a pearl and had a $50 gift card to spend. Our "pearl expert" started with all the outrageous ones, never mentioning price, so when DD finally found the one she wanted, we were shocked to find out it was $250!!! And it was a tiny setting, nothing fancy! When we asked to see the more reasonably priced settings, they pulled out a tray from the bottom drawer and were a little less enthusiastic in the presentation.

She followed the directions and kept it sealed until it was dry. The pearl fell out of the setting the first time she wore it....

Jen, did you get hers at DTD or in Epcot?

I've found that the DTD pearl factory pick-a-pearl location is much more expensive than the location inside Epcot. Granted, they do have really nice quality but very few inexpensive settings. I got my wyland settings there a long time ago. They don't carry wyland now though.

I'm interested in checking out the location at the beach club as I've never been to that one.

I can't wait until DD is older because I read that in the SeaWorld pick a pearl location you pick the oyster and they have a diver go down and get it... what a fun experience that must be!

I can't remember how much my flower pendant setting was, but it had to be reasonable or we wouldn't have done it. When I say reasonable I'm thinking it must've been under $50. I did that back in 07 and still have it today I don't wear it anymore bc of the diamond Andy gave me for our 5th anniversary so I don't know if that has helped it stay in tact better...

I got a silver neclace charm the first time I did the pick a pearl in 2008. It was $15 apprx for the pearl and then $15 for the charm that the pearl is attached to. In 2009 I got another pearl and had it placed on a silver dolphin charm that is a keychain or cell phone charm. That was $10 for the dolpin and that is also silver. last year I just got the pearl and I have ordered to cinderella coach cage charm for ebay which is silver plated and was $5.50 including shipping.

$50 is resonable to me. I may even splurge a little more on a ring for me since the pearl will be the baby's birth stone & I'll need another Mother's ring once she is born!

The Cinderella's Carrage cages are really cute & may be what I go with for my girls. It will be a nice Christmas present for them when we get home.

We bought a carriage and a heart with a crown for DD on ebay before we went and offered her the choice when she got her pearl. She preferred the carriage, but her pearl was too big, so she wears it in the crown.

My DH and I did the pick-a-pearl last year -- it was a surprise for my birthday and anniversary (both on the same day). I got a really simple mount (just a post that goes through the pearl and something it hangs from) so that I could wear it on the gold necklace DH gave me when we got married. I think we were in and out for around $30 - $35 total.

I didn't know SeaWorld still did that. We had a SW in Cleveland when I was young and one of my favorite memories was the pearl diver. I got a pair and still have the pearls in our safe deposit box.

I had a pearl set in a simple silver band in December. I absolutely love it and I think it was only $35 including tax--plus the $17 cost of the pearl.

My dd & I went to the one at DTD for her 13th bday and got georgous necklaces but they were very very expensive. They didn't have anything that was silver only white gold. I'm still wear mine all the time but it was way too expensive.
