The launch also served as an occasion to commemorate the ongoing partnership between CJS and Oceanswell, aimed at supporting and growing Sri Lanka’s marine conservations efforts.
The center of attraction was the intricately designed Blue Whale Pendant. Crafted in silver with a blue sapphire eye, it is truly a work of art that goes beyond style and glamour by symbolizing a commitment and a promise to be a part of the growing initiative that strives to ensure the protection of our oceans.

With all that is going on in our planet, support like this is the urgent need of the hour, and I am proud and thrilled to see CJS stepping up to become a much valued, and admired catalyst of change”.
CEO of CJS, Akram Cassim spoke on similar lines and stated: “It is heartening to see Asha and Oceanswell overcome all kinds of challenges to make a positive impact towards the wellbeing of our beautiful Sri Lankan seas and coastline, which sustain so much of life within, without, and beyond. As citizens and brands, we all share the responsibility of bringing about change in making these oceanic habitats suitable for marine life to thrive, thereby leaving a legacy of true value to the generations of the future.”
