Celebrity Bollywood actress and longstanding CJS Brand Ambassador Jacqueline Fernandez was in town to pay a special visit to the Colombo Jewellery Stores outlet at Dutch Hospital for the unveiling of a new collection titled ‘Reefs’.
The new collection is an added range to the ‘Ocean Blues’ collection. Certain to please all fans of CJS, this new collection highlights the beauty of coral reefs in all its splendour. The intricate nature of the designs are a reflection of the complex ecosystems borne by them. Crafted in gold and white gold using citrines, amethysts, sapphires, emeralds, rubies and pearls; some even set with diamonds and gemstones of varied shapes, the ‘Reefs’ collection is colourful and diverse, much like the vibrant marine life that make ocean coral reefs their habitat.
An array of breath-taking Blue Sapphires and Gems are also part of this new range, showcasing CJS’s craftsmanship abilities that go beyond the design of intricate pieces of jewellery, to the shaping of fine-cut precious stones as well. The inspiration behind this new collection is the urgent need for the conservation of coral reefs around our island coast, invaluable in their contribution to a balanced ecosystem.
CJS is one of the more prominent premium brands featured at the Dutch Hospital Shopping and Lifestyle Precinct. Catering to not just Sri Lanka’s fashionable clientele, but also to many international shoppers and visitors to the venue, the CJS outlet at Dutch Hospital is a focal point for luxury and style in Colombo. Complementing the vibrant setting of the Dutch Hospital, CJS continues to attract discerning shoppers with their exciting and awe-inspiring collections of jewellery and precious stones.
No stranger to the spotlight and exclusivity, Jacqueline Fernandez’s association with CJS is one that is long-standing. Having been the face of many of the brand’s art-house styled advertising campaigns, her attachment to CJS grew stronger over the years as she herself became an ardent fan of their intricate creations. In fact, the basis of her visit is partly for the purpose of picking up an Emerald Ring from the new and exclusive ‘Reefs’ collection.
“While I am formally here to unveil the new ‘Reefs’ collection which also includes a new selection of precious stones, on a more personal note I also wanted to make the trip to select something from this fabulous range. I am proud to say that as Brand Ambassador for CJS, I honestly love the work they do and the designs they create. While the brand has a strong heritage dating back to 1922 in terms of attention to quality and craftsmanship, it is in no way old fashioned or irrelevant. Their styles are very current and contemporary, coupled with just the right amount of traditional artistry,” Jacqueline stated during the event.
With multiple outlets located at the most upmarket venues in Sri Lanka, CJS continues to carve its own niche in the fashion landscape; transforming with evolving cultures and trends while retaining the core essence that makes the brand a unique representation of luxury, indulgence, and elegance.
