About 9twenty5

The Brand

Our brand name 9twenty5

Nine twenty five is coined out of the amount of pure silver

used to make sterling silver jewellery,

the industry standard is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper.

The business was opened with only Sterling Silver stock and since diversified but the name tells its story so it has stayed. Lyssa believes when you wear any jewellery it must have a story. It’s not a complicated story it could be because – you are drawn to it be it for the colour, texture, what it’s made from, how you feel when you wear it, how it compliments your personality, your outfit or yes because your skin accepts it. (Yes some people react to certain metals so your skin can tell you what you should wear- interesting isn’t it).

The Journey

9twenty5 is home to eclectic African inspired jewellery handcrafted in the Coastal town of Sakumono in Ghana.

Everything comes from materials that different cultures would use to make their ornaments and trinkets. We have contemporary, artistic and wearable waist beads, necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets and bridal accessories.

With that being said we source beads from all parts of the World but mainly from Ghana. Our pieces are made from recycled glass, freshwater pearls, brass, rich Ghanaian Gold, Sterling Silver, Crystals, Gemstones, and African Trade beads which have a history all on its own.

When you are wearing a 9twenty5 piece regardless of the price know that it was made with care and love. This is the core reason we do what we do and we work really hard to ensure our clients are truly happy at all times.
