Necklaces by The Giving Keys from £25, UNICEF Lobster Bangle by Alex and Ani £33

As well as being an amazing platform for the arts, festivals are effective for publicising non-profits and charitable organisations- in 2013 Glastonbury raised £2m for charities such as Oxfam, Greenpeace and WaterAid! Support and demonstrate your passion for causes you care about with jewellery. The Giving Keys employ and support those transitioning out of homelessness with their unique recycled designs. Fellow US designer Alex and Ani also work to support charities, such as UNICEF, with their Charity by Design bangles.

Alongside the amazing performances and worthy causes, it is the simple joys of camping in the beautiful countryside that make British festivals a wonderful experience. Don your flower crown, feel the grass under your feet and enjoy the sun in your eyes. Channel the carefree spirit of the ’60s with the new Nature’s Way collection by Daisy London. For a statement flourish, we love these vibrant floral designs by Swatch.

Chlobo Sun Dance: Get the festival look

bracelets ChloInspired by the vibrant Burning Man festival, the ‘Sun Dance‘ bracelets by Chlobo are perfect for your festival stack!

Once a year, tens of thousands of people gather in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to celebrate art, self-expression and creativity. Festival-goers dress as imaginatively as possible at this quirky festival, where the Burning Man looms over the site until the final burn. The festival’s effigy is a symbol of catharsis, reflection and new beginnings and takes a different form each year.

This beautiful summer collection includes new talismans such as the Aztec Triangle, Sun God and Eagle and features a variety of semi-precious stones that represent the fiery colours of the Nevada desert.
