This question already has an answer here:

I have implemented microformatting in one of our websites for our address, breadcrumbs and reviews that we collect from our customers.

After we launched the new website using the microformatting Google accepted all and produced perfect formatted rich snippets. After about a month all got ignored and queries returned 'normal' snippets again.

The Rich Snippet Testing tools indicates all is marked up correctly. Is there anything else I can do? What is the best practice in this matter?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Did you happen to switch to XHTML for your website? – Jonas Wielicki Feb 21 '13 at 18:12
We didn't switch. It was XHTML before and after the implementation. – Goboozo Feb 23 '13 at 8:46

This may be a situation similar to Google Authorship not displaying. According to the answer there, Google may choose to ignore rich snippet markup on new sites. In that case it was author markup and the suggestion was to get more followers on Google+.

In the case of your new website, you may need to get additional authority through inbound links and social media.
