Our Signature Collection hourglasses can be sent to you in kit form so you may add your own sand (or any other material you like). These hourglasses have been very popular for use in a sand ceremony for weddings in place of the unity candle. Here’s how it works:
You choose either a 4x6 or 6x10 size hourglass from the Signature Collection.
Hourglass is sent to you in disassembled form with epoxy for the glass globe and instructions on how to put it together. You will need to provide wood glue, funnel and containers for your sand.
You have a choice of glass globes for your hourglass kit. Option 1 is a globe that is empty if you want to add your own sand (i.e. two different colors). With this option the center hole on the globe is larger to accommodate all types of sand so it usually runs fast. Option 2 is a globe that already has the tan sand you see pictured with our hourglasses. This choice will give you an accurate hourglass when you are finished (and this is the only sand you may use in that globe). The tan color is the only color we have in stock. You may order different colors from us if you want an accurate hourglass but it will add to the cost of your hourglass and will take approximately 4-6 weeks.
Laser engraving OR an engraved plate are options you can add to your hourglass. Please email us with what you want engraved and we will reply with your options and costs.
When you have chosen the hourglass you like go through the checkout process and then send us an email with your order number letting us know that you want it in kit form and if you want an empty globe or a tan sand globe.

**IMPORTANT – IF YOU WANT YOUR HOURGLASS SENT IN KIT FORM PLEASE SEND US AN EMAIL AFTER PLACING YOUR ORDER LETTING US KNOW YOU WANT IT IN KIT FORM OR CALL US WHEN YOU ARE READY TO PLACE YOUR ORDER.**
THESE ARE THE ONLY HOURGLASSES THAT CAN BE SENT IN KIT FORM. THE REST OF OUR HOURGLASSES ARE PREMANUFACTURED WITH ENCLOSED GLOBES SO THEY CAN’T BE USED FOR THIS PURPOSE
I've collaborated with the justhourglasses team on the engraving font, ordering timing and a host of other questions. They have always offered a timely response, and been eager to accommodate. I appreciate their commitment to service and it is in part what makes my decision to come back to this product every year an easy one. -- Nate A
