HOW A FEW DIAMONDS HELPED A FAMILY BUILD A NEW LIFE, AND SEEDED ONE OF THE GREAT SHIPPING DYNASTIES OF THE 20TH CENTURY.
Imagine being stripped of all of your wealth and possessions. Your house, the garden you tended, furniture, and your money in the bank — all gone in the blink of an eye. The friends and family you leave behind are not all as lucky. Terrible to think about, but sadly, in today’s world it can happen to anyone.
That’s exactly what happened to a prominent Chinese family in 1948 when Chairman Mao Tse-tung and his Communist comrades took power in China. Luckily for this family, the wise patriarch had stored his valuable diamonds in a small case, which he took with his family when they left Communist China. Those diamonds provided for them when they put down new roots once the family arrived safely in Hong Kong. But grandpa’s diamonds did much more than that. They were the seed capital for a shipping empire that endures to this day. The family is well off now, but the lesson has not been forgotten; their diamond assets have been replenished.
