The deeper meaning behind the name Donna Dorée

De betekenis achter de naam Donna Dorée
The search for the perfect name for my jewelry brand was not a coincidence. It was a journey, it were illustrated dreams and it was a deep desire to create something unique.

On December 5, 2019, I registered the name 'Donna Dorée' and knew I had something special on my hands.

But where does the name come from?

It is a fusion of two cultures, two languages that have captured my heart; the Italian 'Donna', meaning 'woman', and the French 'Dorée', which translates 'gold' or 'gilded'.
This combination not only reflects my love for Rome and Paris, but also my own name. 'Dorée' is a subtle nod to my maiden name, Doreleijers. From girl Doreleijers to Mrs. Dorée...

Donna Dorée represents the 'golden woman', a woman who embraces her inner brilliance and shows the world her radiant self. I started designing jewelry. But Donna Dorée is more than just jewelry; it is an invitation to show yourself, to embrace your strength and your beauty.

At the heart of my brand lies the desire to empower women, to let their inner beauty shine.

It is a journey I have taken myself. After only a year online, many people no longer addressed me as Wietske (my firstname), but as Donna. Donna has become my alter ego, a symbol of the transformation I have gone through, from realizing my dreams to embodying my brand.

Why is the name Donna Dorée the perfect choice for my jewelry brand?

Because it's not just a name; it's a story. A story of passion, perseverance, and embracing your true self.
