Heirloom Hourglass Materials:
Every Heirloom Hourglass is handcrafted with care from beautiful combinations of the finest, highest quality, hand-selected materials. It is our privilege to create a work of art just for you to preserve your fondest memories with, display in your home, and pass down through generations of your family. Great care and painstaking attention to detail are what you can expect from Heirloom Hourglass, and you will see this in the materials we use. From the elegant curves of our signature rope pillars, to the beautiful glow of rare hardwoods and classic granites, to the timeless beauty of our fine pewter closure designs, we select materials to inspire you and that will only increase in value. Please note that certain woods, granite, oceanstone, gemstone, and marble vary slightly in lightness, darkness, or pattern due to variations in authentic materials. No two pieces are exactly the same. There are commonly imperfections that can be found that are made by nature and part of what makes all natural materials so unique and beautiful. There may occasional knots in the wood, veining, natural "rust", and surface variation in the gemstones, granite, and marble. Please keep in mind that your order is custom hand made and may vary slightly from the image shown on the website. Items are not returnable for defects in natural materials.
Design Inspiration
At Heirloom Hourglass, we are inspired by the importance of the once in a lifetime moments we all experience as we go through life, the simple things that are woven within the fabric of our fondest memories, and the natural elements of our surroundings that enhance it all. When you browse through the many Heirloom Hourglass designs and read their descriptions, we hope you’ll see what we see – the romance of a sunset, the majesty of the oceans, the comfort of a hearth or campfire, the possibilities that a sunrise brings, the ambiance of a moonlit evening, the delicate warmth of candlelight, the bond of wedding vows, or the fond memories of a vacation full of sandy shores and warm breezes. As your sands pass through your Heirloom Hourglass, we hope you’ll be taken back to moments like these, and that we’ve helped you to capture those moments in a way like no other, preserve the memories, and create an heirloom that endures for generations as a symbol of your fondest memories!
