Sanaz Doost is a Persian Canadian multiple award-winning Industrial and jewelry designer who founded Sanaz Doost Atelier in Toronto, Canada. Her journey began as a global nomad in 2006, leaving her motherland Iran to explore the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Europe while studying art and design. She pursued a BA in industrial design and an MA in philosophy of art, immersing herself in ancient goldsmithing techniques in grand bazaars across the Middle East and Asia. Sanaz then ventured to North America to specialize in jewelry arts, culminating in the establishment of Sanaz Doost, her eponymous brand, in Toronto, Canada in 2021.

Sanaz Doost embodies the spirit of timeless elegance and modern sophistication in her creations, celebrating art, culture, and heritage through her bold, sculptural, and architectural fine jewelry collections. Inspired by her love for architecture, art, ancient culture and heritage, Sanaz meticulously sources and handcrafts gemstones, adorning them with her signature finish in fluid and delicate 18K gold structures. This process results in distinctly sculptural jewelry pieces that exude boldness and refinement.

Throughout her career, Sanaz has showcased her designs in prestigious fashion and jewelry weeks, including Munich Jewelry Week, Barcelona Jewelry Week, Roma Jewelry Week, New York Jewelry Week, Toronto Fashion Week, and more. Her exceptional designs have earned international recognition, including international awards such as the A’ Design Award.

My Goal

On the other hand, Sanaz is a superwoman, but without kryptonite. She is immune to technical constraints. As an artist, she constantly challenges herself to align her outputs with her daring creative ideas. Her multiple international design awards prove these.  However, Sanaz abandoned her global nomad lifestyle to launch her Toronto-based studio. After that, She fulfilled her dream of creating art jewelry that synthesizes elegant design with choice quality. The studio doubles up as a private showroom, meaning customers can browse and try on the jewellery on display whilst seeing the process of jewelry making.

Above all, In pursuit of boldness and ipseity, Sanaz creates designs that find a middle ground between classic and contemporary, stock and sparse. Her works are done exclusively with 18K solid gold with ethically sourced gemstones and there’s a unique story & meaning behind each of her jewelry pieces.
