An oyster at the Pick-a-Pearl in Dollywood

Near the chapel, you'll find "Found Treasures." 

In front of the store is the Pick-a-Pearl tank with farmed oysters featuring a pearl guarantee. 

Before she opens an oyster for a customer, Jessica Davis likes to say '1,2,3 be pretty for me.' Then she reveals either one or two pearls.

Take your pearl home in a small box or have it set into a necklace or ring. 

Dolly Parton was there for the opening and held a parade to celebrate the event!
