Ipekdjian Brothers Diamond Merchants [????- ]
Ipekdjian Brothers Diamond Merchants Hong Kong 1920s
Hi all, I wonder if anyone can help please. I am told that there was a diamond merchants in Hong Kong in early 1920's called Ipekdjian Brothers, set up by Jean Baptiste Ipekdjian, he was Armenian. He also set up a diamond merchant business in Penang in the late 1920's and I believe more successful there. I am told he lived at 35 Barker Road.
I have searched the online HK newspapers and cannot find any reference to him or the company, not an advert, any kind of reference or anything. Also the HK public records office online don't seem to have anything either.
I'm looking for anything anyone can tell me, or tell me where I should be looking, to find out more about this Armenian diamond trader. I would also like to know if he was at all associated with Tigran Matthews Gregory (another Armenian died in the 1960s) who was also a diamond merchant, and extremely successful.
Anything on either of these gentlemen and their diamond businesses would be greatly appreciated.
