Cerese D Jewelry is a mother daughter jewelry design company based in Atlanta, Georgia. The company was incorporated in 2007 and has an international customer base. Cerese was raised by her mom Deborah, a single parent and successful entrepreneur.  

From her first experience with crayons, Cerese Dolman (Cerese D) developed an interest in design. She was fascinated with vibrant colors, shapes, designs and the arts in general. She’s a visionary who captures the  essence of beauty and transforms it into exquisite works of art. 

Cerese Dolman is President/CEO and has earned two bachelor degrees, one in Interior Design and one in Business Management, a wonderful combination for a creative designer. 

Deborah Dolman, VP for Business Development, has been self employed since 1979, starting and growing various business ventures. She co-founded Cerese D, Inc. with her daughter in 2007 and brings a wealth of sales, marketing and management expertise.

Cerese moved from Lansing, Michigan to Atlanta, Geogia in 1991 to attend Clark Atlanta University and graduated with a  Bachelor degree in Business.  Then earned a second Bachelor degree in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Atlanta. 

While working for a large commercial interior design company based in Buckhead, Cerese began making jewelry as a hobby in her guest bedroom. As the jewelry-making supplies consumed her entire condo,  it was at that time she began to realize that jewelry design was her passion.    

After a 9-year successful career designing fabulous corporate boardrooms and executive offices for major clients such as Auto Trader, Cox Communications, Arbys, to name a few, Cerese resigned to concentrate on her first entrepreneurial venture, with her mom by her side. 

The company leased a 1200 square foot studio in Marietta, Georgia and hired a part time assistant.  Deborah flew back and forth from Michigan to Atlanta monthly.

After selling her technology company in Michigan, Deborah could see the extraordinary creativity in Cerese's designs and began selling and marketing to her vast base of contacts in Michigan.  Deborah would soon move to Atlanta to work closer with her daughter.  

After four years, the company had outgrown the initial 1200 square foot  space.   They needed something larger, closer to downtown, industrial, with great parking. They moved to a 4500 square foot space in West Midtown Atlanta where they currently have design and production capacity for their huge customer base and staff. The current space is by appointment only, offering a very personal customer shopping experience.

The company invests heaviily in social media and has thousands of followers. Along with creating new jewelry designs, Cerese and her assistants are always incorporating new, unique content for all their social media platforms. Increasing followers and engaging with them is an important part of this successful business. Shop 24/7 WWW.CERESED.COM
