With over twenty years experience in design and creation of exquisite jewellery, Crishanthus Angelo founded Chamathka Jewellers in October 2003. When Chamathka opened its first branch in Battaramulla, there was no fashion trend for silver jewellery. With Chamathka's mission to promote silver jewellery as an affordable piece of fashion wear, the Company opened its first flagship showroom in 2006 at Crescat Boulevard.
Within nine years of steady growth, the company expanded its operations to 16 outlets , employing over sixty highly skilled Sri Lankan craftsmen using traditional methods coupled with the very latest technology to deliver that extra special piece of work at a very competitive and affordable price. Not only Sri-Lanka, even world famous fashion destinations such as Switzerland and the United Kingdom began to source jewellery from Chamathka. Over the years Chamathka expanded its branch network to 25 sales outlets islandwide through its strategic partners, Arpico and John Keells Supercentres, K-Zone, Liberty Plaza, Majestic City, Kandy City Centre, and the Gold Centre. Exquisite jewellery crafted by highly skilled and dedicated craftsmen continue to tell the success story of Chamathka.
Diversifying into fashion clothing and accessories, the holding company De’Angelo (Pvt) Ltd launched four ‘Chamathkara’ outlets at Majestic City, K-Zone and Kandy City Centre featuring imported party wear, shoes, hand bags, shawls and other fashion accessories which have become a hotspot for customers who seek what’s new in the world of fashion. The Company has also opened a high end Gift Store at Crescat Boulevard to cater to an upmarket clientele. The latest addition to its portfolio being two Super Stores, one at Lanka Hospitals and the other at the Galle Fort.
