Heirloom Hourglass - The Golden Anniversary
Wedding Anniversary is a lifetime milestone for which people seek a deeply meaningful and symbolic gift. Heirloom Hourglass
offers The Golden Anniversary in honor of this joyous occasion, and we have selected the finest materials to create this hourglass.
This hourglass is also perfect for a wedding unity sand ceremony or a gift for any special occasion. The bases are made from
a rare and beautiful hardwood called curly maple, which we seal with a hand rubbed finish to enhance its natural beauty. Highly
sought after by artisans and craftsman to create fine furnishings and heirlooms, maple with this appearance only occurs in
about 1 out of every 500 trees. We select premium grade curly maple that displays a lustrous, golden beige grain pattern which
reflects the light with a glowing warmth and depth that only nature could make possible. The rope shaped pillars are made
from fine solid pewter and then gold plated with genuine 24 carat gold, perfect for the Golden Anniversary. A ship wheel on
each side made from 24 carat gold plated solid pewter completes this hourglass. The rope pattern of the pillars is chosen
for the two intertwining strands that perfectly symbolize the bond of two people’s lives that lead them to their 50th
Anniversary celebration. Many special moments and fond memories were made during the couple’s journey through life together
that made the celebration of the 50th Anniversary possible. Fill their Heirloom Hourglass with sands and soils
that you collect from the very places these moments and memories were made or fill The Golden Anniversary with colored sands
that represent their children’s or other family member’s birthstones. A kit for collecting sands and soils is
included, and it contains a gift book perfect for writing about the symbolic meaning of the sands you filled the hourglass
with. Customize your Golden Anniversary Heirloom Hourglass with engraved gold plated solid pewter heart closures, or with
an engraved gold plate. Our gold plated Birthstone ship wheel closures can also add a special touch. Include a gold ship
wheel with the Husband’s Birthstone on one side and a gold ship wheel with the Wife’s Birthstone on the other.
This unique sand ceremony hourglass
is the perfect addition to a wedding unity sand ceremony, family unity ceremony, or vow renewal ceremony. It is
the perfect alternative to the unity candle for an outdoor wedding sand ceremony, destination beach wedding sand ceremony,
or an inside wedding where a candle cannot be lit. It also makes the perfect heartfelt gift for any occasion.
