All Heirloom Hourglasses are handcrafted by Heirloom Hourglass, LLC in upstate New York State. Each hourglass is handmade and normal production time is 2-4 weeks prior to shipping depending on hourglass design ordered, customization, engraving, etc. If you need it sooner, please let us know and we will let you know if we can make your deadline or add a note on your order with your deadline date. Standard closures may be substituted to meet a deadline. Each Unity sand Ceremony Hourglass stands approximately 9 and 5/8 inches tall and the bases are 6 inches in diameter. Each model can be opened and closed for filling from with a charm closure that seals the hourglasses. Any of these can be upgraded to any of the custom charm closures found in the Custom Charm Closure section. Just order the one you prefer and it will come in place of the standard one. Every Heirloom Hourglass comes with a Collection Kit which includes: a small carry bag, 2 paper sand collection / pouring cups, a strainer, 2 sand collection bags, a paper funnel, a certified authentic numbered personalization book, and a complete set of easy to use instructions. This kit is perfect for gathering your sands or soils and filling your Heirloom Hourglass. There are also ceremony kits with glass and seashell items available to also purchase if you are planning on using the hourglass in a ceremony and prefer these options in place of the paper items. Heirloom Hourglass Unity Hourglasses hold 8-16 ounces of sand. The runtime for each Heirloom Hourglass is completely unique to you, and this is one of the best things about Heirloom Hourglass – just like our customers and your unique “Once In A Lifetime” moments, no two are exactly alike. You can fill your Heirloom Hourglass with sands from nearly any location in the world – sand you get yourself or purchase from us. Things like the size and shape of the sand grains, the moisture content, and the amount you put in your Heirloom Hourglass will all affect the runtime. We recommend filling the hourglass with 8-12 ounces of sand for the best appearance. The purpose of the fillable models is to store and display sands that have a special meaning to the user, more so than it is to tell time. Heirloom Hourglass models are not designed to run for an hour, but to hold sands of special meaning, such as sands from Your Wedding Day.
