Edward had great expertise in gems, which helped him develop a perfect technology for cutting and polishing stones. Swoboda jewelry quickly became popular thanks to its unique and innovative design and high quality.
Famous collections by Swoboda – birds, crowns, flowers and African princesses – were made by hand in small quantities with fresh-water pearls, gilding, turquoise, jade, garnet, quartz, rhodonite.
US First Lady Nancy Reagan favored the brand and in 1966 commissioned Swoboda to produce miniature cypresses to be gifted at the National Governors Conference. Until 1966, the brand’s jewelry was not marked, there were just labels with the name of the brand.
Later, Swoboda and SWO markings appeared. But the miniature masterpieces are easily recognizable without any marking, thanks to the spectacular combinations of bright gems and unique design. In 1976, the brand founder left the company, which continued to exist until 1985.
The company’s products, however, are still relevant today, as well as the slogan: Jewelry for the Stars. And we would add: Jewelry to put you in a good mood!
