It was in 1904 that Spiros Tzannatos opened his first jewellery workshop in the town of Argostoli, Kefalonia. He produced his own handmade pieces for the local markets needs and also began co-operating with Swiss watchmakers and European workshops to supply his customers with superior and unique watches and jewellery designs. Later he was to pass down his experience to his two sons, Evangelos and Stelios who were to continue this family business which had developed a trusted and respected name in the market.
By the time of the devastating earthquake of 1953, the brothers were running two independent businesses in the town. After the quake, Evangelos was to leave for Athens where he opened a wholesale jewellery business which was very successful until his retirement in the late 80's. Stelios remained on the island during the difficult years of reconstruction and was able to keep the business open and thriving. After several changes of premises he finally settled in the today's building on Lithostroto and began a period of development.
Today Theodoros Tzannatos is at the helm having taken over from his father Stelios in 1984. Theodoros has more than 30 years of experience having begun his career studying Jewellery and Design in the Institute of Art in Florence, Italy. He returned to Kefalonia having gained his Diploma and undertook a renewal process over several years which was completed in 2002 with a refurbishment of the shop premises.
Tzannatos today, as a quality jeweller in the new millennium, offers you many top brand names exclusively on the island, such as, Rolex, Omega, Longines, Tag Heuer and Mont Blanc.
