Who Gives This Man?
~ Misty White Heart Crystallized Ornament with a Bridegroom Mix of Chatons ~
Designed with gift giving and momento keeping in mind, each heart is created by skilled artisans who blow molten glass into a hand-carved mold perpetuating a centuries old art form. The interior of the glass heart is coated with shimmering silver which provides luminescence and brilliance to the rich, hand-applied lacquer finish.
Every 4-inch glass heart is Crystallized™ with Swarovski® using 160 sparkling crystal chatons that are hand set into waffled indentations, much in the way stones are set into jewelry.
After each stone is inspected to ensure quality, a hand-tied double bow and a sheer organza ribbon are added and offer a beautiful way to hang and display your heart. This evocative line offers a fresh and very sentimental option for ornament lovers seeking an alternative to just another tree trimming collectible ~ these are meant to be left out all year long!
This design, named "Who Gives This Man," is accompanied by an evocative story, presented on a story card within the gift box with the following sentiment:
"There’s another side of the wedding day equation, the one that’s trimmed in tuxes, ties, and tails, rollicks with laughter, and reverberates with love that’s been delivered over a lifetime of little boy truckloads and train cars, muddy footprints and treetop fortresses and has transitioned, in what seems like a moment, to this day where that adorable impish grin has become the beaming smile of a man in love, waiting on the aisle of new beginnings to welcome the woman of his dreams. He’s surrounded by hearts whose love envelopes him with the same warm intensity he has known his whole life, the kind of love that has made him the man he is, strong in the knowledge of how to give and receive love that transcends time, the kind that of love that has nurtured and shaped him from infancy to adulthood. He knows that, if the question were asked, “Who gives this man…?”, that they are the ones who should answer, the ones who have given the irreplaceable gift of their own example on how to live, how love can be both tender and strong, how to love with the depth and breadth of one’s soul, the ones who should know, as they watch him share the fairytale moment when the handsome prince proclaims the beautiful princess as his one true love, how deeply within him their love resides today and always, and how the gratitude he feels goes well beyond what words alone can ever express. He knows they are with him, their little boy turned man, watching from the first row of his life through the misty eyes of pride and joy, the hearts from which love and life emerged on, what seems like, a not so distant, yesterday and today completes the circle of their love and begins anew."
A unique, memorable gift sure to be treasured for years to come and is destined to become a family heirloom, handed down through the generations.
