MARKS and AGE Marked SWO INC which is the mark for Swoboda. Dates between 1966 and 1985, the company was in business since 1956 but jewelry prior to 1966 was unmarked. Swoboda was a jewelry manufacturer known for using semi precious stones in their interesting figural designs. In 1863, in France, jade was proved to consist of two different, distinct minerals, jadeite and nephrite although it had simply been known as jade for over 7000 years. Nephrite is the more common version of jade and jadeite is more scarce.
