This custom Signature Collection hourglass is handcrafted from solid granadillo wood grown in Central America and is the newest in our Signature lineup. A beautiful wood, its denseness makes it very strong and durable and it finishes very smoothly. The color is a rich reddish brown with black streaking. Like all wood, granadillo varies in graining and color - no two are alike. Combined with glass bulbs hand-blown in England, this classic piece is stunning.
As with all wood each piece will vary slightly in graining and color making each hourglass unique. Hourglasses are handmade so sizes are approximate.

The quality is incredible. I love it. I’ve bought a lot of our glasses and compared to this one, they all suck.
I couldn't have been more satisfied with my order. I am surprising my wife with the hourglass for our 40th wedding anniversary on a trip to the Grand Hotel at Mackinac Island. The detailed artwork I supplied was followed to a tee in the laser engraving and the round plaque inset into the opposite end. For the laser engraved end I provided a circle that represented the end of the hourglass and then put the artwork into the inside of the circle so that they would know the size of the engraving I wanted. It turned out perfect. On the other end I did the same thing for the brass plaque and it also turned out perfect down to the same font. I was concerned that the plaque would be inset into the wood so that it wouldn't rub or get scratched and it was perfectly inset into the wood so not concerns. I ordered mine assembled and it was shipped very securely no damage. The wood is beautiful and the detail carving in the spindles is very nice.
Gorgeous well made quality materials used
Excellent service quick turn around time and quick email response within minutes
The hourglass is beautiful. We used the kit in our wedding ceremony and it was perfect. We received a ton of complements about it. It really is a creative twist on the more traditional sand ceremony. We my husband and I have two sayings that we tell each other before going to bed every night 'I love you to the moon and back' and 'I love you forever and for always' so we had these engraved on the top and bottom of the hourglass. For us the hourglass represents our never ending love as the sand represents time and it moves across space. Thank you for your amazing customer service your quick delivery and your high quality product.
The only thing that could be improved on is the instructions on what to do with the sticky stuff and the cap that goes on the glass after the sand is poured. It is just a little confusing if you aren't a handy person. I was able to figure it out eventually though.
The customer service was phenomenal. After placing my order I received an email shortly after confirming everything. The lady that emailed me was a real person not just an automated message.
This hourglass is absolutely beautiful. We did a custom engraved medal on one end and a quote engraved into the wood on the other and it looks stunning. They do incredible work!
No hassle at all. We discussed what we wanted and it came to us exactly as we had imagined it! Could not have asked for nicer people!
