Factors to Consider Before Buying an Engagement Ring
We find that taking the time to give our clients as much information as possible makes their experience easier and more enjoyable. Before you visit our store in person, consider the following factors when choosing an engagement ring:
- Ring Size: Knowing your fiancée’s ring size is crucial, especially if you’re planning a surprise without her knowing. Borrow one of her rings and bring it to Colucci’s Jewelers, and we will measure free of charge. For the perfect fit, we can also resize her ring when the time is right.
- Jewelry Preference: Sapphire? Ruby? Emerald? Diamond? At Colucci Jewelry, we have a wide range of gemstones to choose from which to choose, as well as settings and metal types. Ask your fiancée’s friends or family for tips, or better yet, ask her yourself if you can do so without spoiling the surprise.
- 4 C’s: The four C’s represent color, clarity, cut, and carat weight. If you’re just starting your search, this system might be foreign to you, but it is a trusted grading system used throughout the world. We recommend you visit Colucci’s Jewelers for a quick education on this system, so you can find a quality diamond at a price that fits within your budget.

If you need to get your fine jewelry appraised for insurance purposes, Colucci’s Jewelers can help.
It’s a great idea to get your jewelry appraised periodically. As the years pass along, the value of your precious metals and gemstones can fluctuate. If your last appraisal was more than two years ago, you could run into problems with your insurance coverage. If your jewelry is insured for less than its replacement value, you could lose a substantial amount of money if it is stolen or lost.
To help prevent situations like this from happening, our on-site jeweler Stefan Colucci will provide you with an up-to-date appraisal report based on your jewelry’s current market value. That way, you can update your insurance accordingly.
We also specialize in estate jewelry appraisals, so you know exactly how much your old jewelry is worth if you are thinking of selling.
Our appraisal services include:
- Diamond Appraisals
- Insurance Appraisals
- Court Appraisals
- Estate Jewelry Appraisals
- Cash Offer for Appraised Jewelry

Lowcountry Meets the High Country when the South Carolina quintet brings their jazz-influenced arrangements of traditional Gullah music to Boone.
Appalachian State University’s An Appalachian Summer Festival (AASF) concludes its 37th season with the Grammy-winning band Ranky Tanky in an outdoor concert at State Farm Road Concert Lot on Saturday, July 31, 2021 at 8pm. The soulful songs of the Gullah culture are brought to life by this quintet of native South Carolinians who mix Lowcountry traditions with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk, and R&B. From playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies, the musical roots of Charleston, SC are fertile ground from which these contemporary artists have grown. To purchase tickets (sold in pods for up to two, four and six people), visit or call the Schaefer Center box office at 800-841-2787 or 828-262-4046, or purchase online at AppSummer.org.
Ranky Tanky — whose name roughly translates at “work it” or “get funky” — have achieved many firsts for South Carolina’s West African-rooted Gullah community since their formation, earning yet another milestone earlier this year at the Grammy Awards by taking home the Best Regional Roots Album prize for their sophomore release, Good Time. The album, which also hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Chart, combines songs carried down through generations in the Sea Islands of the Southeastern United States with the band’s own original compositions in the Gullah tradition. In Ranky Tanky’s hands, this style of music has been described as “soulful honey to the ears” (NPR) while being covered by the New York Times, NPR’s “Fresh Air” and The Today Show.
Ranky Tanky are five lifelong friends from Charleston, SC, who have established themselves as passionate global ambassadors for their local culture and community, helping to faithfully preserve the traditions originated by African Americans in the coastal South during slavery that are kept alive through the present day. The band have been featured on NPR’s “Fresh Air,” The Today Show, PBS Newshour and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert #playathome. Ranky Tanky were honored to be featured artists in President Biden’s inauguration event, We the People. They were the subjects of a 10-page profile in Oxford American’s South Carolina Music Issue and were named 2020 Artist of The Year by the Charleston City Paper.
Gates open at 7pm, concert begins at 8pm. Food trucks from The Cardinal, Village Inn Pizza and The Farmer’s Wife Fried Pies, plus tents selling beer and wine, water and sodas, snacks and App Summer merch — hoodies, tees, hats, mugs and more!
2-person pod $70; 4-person pod $130; 6-person pod $180; the larger the pod the lower the ticket price per person. To purchase tickets, visit or call the Schaefer Center box office at 800-841-2787 or 828-262-4046. Or purchase online.
The outdoor concert at the State Farm Road Lot (235 Dale St., Boone, NC), will take place rain or shine. No umbrellas permitted. For weather-related text updates exclusive to this show, opt in here.

SC lawmakers working on 'use of force' legislation in light of Jamal Sutherland case

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — Jamal Sutherland’s death has highlighted a number of systemic shortfalls. One big element moving forward is the lack of an excessive force law in South Carolina.
Ninth Circuit Solicitor Scarlett Wilson talked about that at length in her press conference Monday.
“We need to change in how we address officer-involved incidents of force,” Wilson said Monday. “It’s time for South Carolina to have an excessive force bill, an excessive force statute that is, a use of force statute.”
State lawmakers are already working on legislation to address some of the issues brought to light by the Sutherland case.
Gubernatorial candidate Senator Mia McLeod, D-District 22, introduced the Transparency in Justice Act earlier this year. Among some of the many provisions, the bill requires law enforcement to undergo de-escalation training. McLeod said she plans on introducing a use of force bill next session.
“If (Wilson’s) hands are tied because the law current law doesn’t support what we know she should be able to do in terms of charging them, that’s a real problem,” McLeod said on Tuesday.
“It’s one I haven’t stopped thinking about once I heard her say that yesterday. I believe with my Transparency in Justice Act, the use of Force bill that I plan to file and the mental health issues that I plan to address all go hand in hand in terms of addressing the systemic reforms that I know we need," she said.
Representative Marvin Pendarvis, D-District 113, introduced an excessive force statute earlier this year. It was introduced during the last week of the legislative session.
“A use of force statute is something that the legislative black caucus has been calling for since George Floyd’s death last summer,” Pendarvis said. “I believe it would have been just another tool in (Wilson’s) tool kit of measures that could be used to bring charges, so yes, I believe it would have helped.”
Pendarvis said he’s working with several other colleagues on a new use of force bill. While it’s too early to spell out the specific details of it, he said they’re collaborating and sharing specific language that would help them arrive to an actionable use of force statute on the book.
“I believe that any measure you have that will hold officers accountable will certainly do enough to deter that kind of behavior,” he said. “You’re going to need language that allows for officers who engage in conduct that may be in their normal scope of handling a situation, but that conduct exceeds the bounds, it escalates in a way that severely and significantly injures someone or causes them to lose their life, they’re going to be properly charged for that.”
Charlestowne Hotels Raises The Bar On Hotel Food and Beverage
CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charlestowne Hotels, the innovative, full-service hospitality management company, emerges as a leader in the food and beverage space with the debut of six new concepts this year, including the company’s first standalone bar and restaurant.

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charlestowne Hotels, the innovative, full-service hospitality management company, emerges as a leader in the food and beverage space with the debut of six new concepts this year, including the company’s first standalone bar and restaurant.
Since January, Charlestowne has opened four successful hotel F&B operations, including Anvil + Ax at Hotel Morgan (Morgantown, WV), Famille at Origin Hotel Westminster (Westminster, CO), Front & Main at the Lockwood Hotel (Waterville, ME) and NOVO at Wild Rice Retreat (Bayfield, WI). Charlestowne’s fully integrated food and beverage team leads all front and back-of-house operations for every restaurant it manages, including concept development, branding, menu ideation, staff hiring and training, and design consultation.
Each restaurant opening has been met with praise by guests and locals, driving robust reservations and foot traffic during a particularly challenging time for the hospitality industry. Since opening in March, over 60% of Origin Hotel Westminster’s total revenue has come from food and beverage alone. Further, restaurant reservations at Front & Main, which opened its doors in advance of the Lockwood Hotel, are fully booked nearly every day of the week.
“Charlestowne’s success in restaurant concept development is supported by our community-centric approach. We observe the local landscape and design our culinary concepts to fill gaps in the market,” says Anthony Langan, corporate director of food and beverage at Charlestowne Hotels. “We never add a restaurant simply to check a box. For us, it’s all about what we can create that will inject more color, energy, and hometown pride into the neighborhood.”
Later this year, Charlestowne Hotels will celebrate a monumental moment in its 40-year history: the opening of Gingerline, its first F&B standalone restaurant concept outside a hotel property. Located on Market Street in the heart of Charleston, SC, the bar and restaurant will feature lively cocktails and coastal cooking. In addition to its central location, it is also steps away from two of Charlestowne’s flagship hotels: The Spectator and The French Quarter Inn, giving it a continuous source of foot traffic from two of the most highly awarded hotels in the country.
In addition to Gingerline, Charlestowne is set to open a sophisticated, garden-inspired bar & lounge at The Loutrel (Charleston, SC) later this year, with additional restaurant concepts already in the pipeline for 2022. The company is quickly signing new partners as they build their reputation as a premier food and beverage operator.
Charlestowne currently manages more than three dozen food and beverage outlets, ranging from coffee shops and delis to rooftop bars and full-service restaurants. Within the past six months alone, Charlestowne’s newest restaurants have experienced almost instantaneous success, further establishing food and beverage as one of the management company’s core pillars. Looking ahead, Charlestowne aims to use these F&B concepts to establish higher ADR and elevate operations and guest services through a range of new capabilities, culinary-focused hotel programming experiences and bookable packages.

Jail consultant hired by solicitor calls Sutherland death ‘shocking’ and ‘disturbing’

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A day after Solicitor Scarlett Wilson announced that the two Charleston County detention deputies involved in the death of Jamal Sutherland will not face state charges, the use of force consultant hired by Wilson said that what is depicted in the videos of Sutherland’s death is “shocking” and “disturbing.”
Gary Raney, who served as a sheriff in Idaho for a decade, said in a phone interview that in order to understand the actions of the two deputies, it is important to take a look at how they were trained.
Raney pointed to a decade-old clip of one of the two deputies, Lindsay Fickett, being pepper-sprayed at a training for Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center employees. To Raney, what the video showed is more like hazing than the sort of training that he feels is needed.
“There’s really no jail or no law enforcement organization this size that I know of that is not doing some sort of active training on de-escalation and force avoidance,” Rainey said. “The sheriff’s office here had a little bit, but it was so superficial [that] you couldn’t even really call it training.”
Raney said that an incident like what led up to Sutherland’s death could “absolutely” happen again at Charleston County’s jail.
“A jail is a difficult environment,” Raney said. “It’s filled with people who don’t want to be there. Mental illness is a very difficult thing. In any jail, this could happen. The likelihood of it happening is greater in the jail here in Charleston because fundamentally, the policy is not in place to fix it. The foundation of reform starts with good policy.”
Moving forward, Raney said that the jail needs to boost its de-escalation efforts, give detention deputies proper taser training, remove detention deputies’ shotguns, make sure that supervisors correct deputies right away whenever they notice something wrong, and allow detainees who are pepper-sprayed to have a 10-minute waiting period to surrender.
Raney said that if even Sheriff Kristin Graziano fully implements all of the changes that he is recommending, it would take two or three years before they become effective.
“We don’t intimidate people into compliance anymore in jails,” Raney said. “What we do is use good communication skills. We often have to use force, no question about that. It happens every single day across the United States dozens or hundreds of times. But the whole effort should be to avoid that use of force and that’s what they need to reform.”

State health dept. recommending South Carolinians wear masks in indoor, public settings
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - State health officials are recommending that all South Carolinians, including those who are fully vaccinated, wear masks when indoors and in public settings. Officials with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control said the recommendation originates from updated guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention because of the rise of COVID-19 cases and the Delta variant. “Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases and the increasing threat of the Delta variant, th...
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - State health officials are recommending that all South Carolinians, including those who are fully vaccinated, wear masks when indoors and in public settings.
Officials with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control said the recommendation originates from updated guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention because of the rise of COVID-19 cases and the Delta variant.
“Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases and the increasing threat of the Delta variant, the CDC on Tuesday is recommending public indoor masking for everyone, regardless of vaccination status,” DHEC officials said on Tuesday. “This includes masking for teachers, students, parents and visitors in K-12 schools.”
The CDC says there has been a rise in breakthrough cases – ones where fully vaccinated individuals test positive for COVID-19 – that is likely being fueled due to the rise of the Delta variant. That is why updated guidelines are necessary, according to the agency.
The updated CDC recommendations include:
DHEC recommends all South Carolinians follow the same protocols. “To be clear, this is not a mandate,” state health officials said.
State law prohibits the implementation of mask mandates in schools, DHEC officials said. However, DHEC strongly encourages individuals to protect themselves and others by wearing masks.
“Today’s change in guidance from the CDC reflects the very concerning trends we are seeing nationally and here in South Carolina regarding increasing case rates and a stagnant vaccination rate,” DHEC Public Health Director Dr. Brannon Traxler said. “As a virus spreads, it mutates into more contagious forms, which explains the rise of the Delta variant. We were hoping to reach herd immunity to stifle the spread of COVID-19 to prevent this scenario, but public health urgency now makes it necessary to return to recommending universal masking in public indoor settings.”
“Despite these changes in guidance, one thing remains clear: vaccinations are still the number one way to end this pandemic,” DHEC officials said. “Recent statewide data shows that, in the month of June, more than 90 percent of COVID-19 cases and deaths, and 86 percent of hospitalizations, were among individuals who were not fully vaccinated.”
“This data shows that even with the threat of variants, vaccinations are working,” Traxler added. “If we increase our masking and our vaccinations, we can protect ourselves and fellow South Carolinians, and finally defeat COVID-19.”
DHEC officials said they are finalizing its K-12 guidance for the 2021-2022 academic year and will provide that information this week.
