"The Silver Anniversary"

This hourglass is specially crafted with the 25th Wedding Anniversary in mind. The rope pattern is chosen for the two intertwining strands that perfectly symbolize the intertwining of two people’s lives that lead them to their 25th Anniversary celebration. This Heirloom Hourglass comes standard with two solid pewter ship wheels and a sand collection kit. Complete The Silver Anniversary with sands from the first beach you went to together as a couple, sands from a special location you’re celebrating your 25th at, or sands from any location with symbolic meaning to you. This model also makes a great gift for children to give their parents on their 25th Anniversary. Many people customize this hourglass with solid pewter hearts, or with solid pewter ship wheels that have the couple’s Birthstones in them. A silver plate engraved with names, dates, and a special note is the perfect finishing touch.

The 50th Wedding Anniversary is a lifetime milestone for which people seek a deeply meaningful and symbolic gift. Heirloom Hourglass offers The Golden Anniversary model to help celebrate this joyous occasion.

Two ship wheels made from 24 carat gold plated solid pewter complete this regal and stunning hourglass, and a collection kit for gathering the sand is also included. The rope pattern of the pillars is chosen for the two intertwining strands that perfectly symbolize the intertwining of two people’s lives that lead them to their 50th Anniversary celebration. Fill this Golden Anniversary hourglass with sands from any special location where fun moments and fond memories were made during the journey through life together that made the celebration of the 50th Anniversary possible. Customize your Golden Anniversary Heirloom Hourglass with engraved gold plated solid pewter heart closures, or with an engraved gold plate. Include a gold plated ship wheel with the Husband’s Birthstone on one side and second wheel with the Wife’s Birthstone on the other.
