The story behind our jewellery

  • Our Story

    Jenny and Mike Miller, from Cape Town, South Africa, began making jewellery in the 1980s. Their bold designs and quality product caught the attention of high end retail stores, and soon their passion became a thriving business.

    In the 1990s, in a market saturated with mass produced items, there was a need for an ethically made, vibrant and fashion-forward jewellery brand. Miglio was born.

  • The Jewellery

    Miglio Designer Jewellery is best known for it's versatility and interchangeable qualities. Necklaces can be worn long or short and enhanced with signature clip-on pendants. Bracelets can be linked and layered, or extended to create neckpieces. Earrings can be personalised with designer charms. Rings can stacked or worn alone for everyday simplicity.

    We've made it playful...
