Diamond Engagement Rings in Daniel Island

Proposing to the love of your life is one of the most beautiful, memorable moments that two people will ever share as a couple. An engagement ring symbolizes love and acceptance; it epitomizes trust and commitment. While no two proposals will ever be exactly the same, there is one constant that will always remain true: the diamond engagement ring you choose from Colucci's Jewelers will give you a lifetime of pleasure and contentment.
We understand that choosing the right engagement ring is one of the most important decisions you can make. That is why we pair the finest engagement jewelry in Daniel Island, SC, with one-on-one showings and helpful advice - to ensure that you discover dazzling rings at an affordable price. With the Colucci team by your side, we take second-guessing out of the equation, so you can focus on popping the question with confidence. After all, a diamond engagement ring is meant to be cherished for a lifetime!

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 fiance'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 fiancee'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

Anna Katherine Head, Bishop England High School

Valedictorian, Class of 2022

Anna Katherine Head always had a deep-rooted love for animals. Her family has fostered kittens through Berkeley County Animal Shelter and Charleston Animal Society for several years and her parents, Barbara and Anthony, always allowed pets in their home.

In the fall, Head will be studying animal and veterinary sciences at Clemson University Honors College with the hopes of becoming a veterinarian.

Head believes success can be viewed from many perspectives because one person’s success might not be another’s. “I always tell myself to go out and not regret what I’m doing… To do (everything) with purpose and with meaning.”

One thing Head’s most proud of is her class getting through high school during a pandemic. “It was a struggle, but we all did it and Bishop England handled it really well with all the hybrid (learning). The fact that we made it through shows that we’re a really resilient class.”

Head, who was involved in several activities including model United Nations, engineering club, pom squad, glee club and field hockey, advises younger students to study, do their homework and join clubs to participate and make friends.

Head said she is thankful for the support of her friends, family and all the teachers who made an impact on her life and helped shape her into the independent-thinking person she is today.

“We’ve been prepared, but we’re not owed anything … it’s up to us,” Head added. “We’re the newest action takers and we need to go out and be the good people in the world.”

Caitlin Keffer, Bishop England High School

Salutatorian, Class of 2022

Caitlin Keffer is most proud of how she has grown as a person over the past four years and how her extracurricular activities helped her develop new interests, become more confident and serve her community.

“A lot of hard work and studying have contributed to my success but also being optimistic that the hard work would pay off in so many different ways,” Keffer said.

Keffer will be attending the University of Notre Dame, majoring in neuroscience and is excited to begin a new chapter of her life this fall. “It’s an amazing school with a very welcoming atmosphere, football community and culture.”

The advice Keffer offers to underclassmen is to embrace every moment of high school. “Keep everything in perspective because the issues that seem so important when you’re a freshman are the things you will laugh at when you’re a senior. In the end it all works out.”

Keffer was involved in youth in government, varsity swim team, Lowcountry Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, National Honor Society and several school clubs. “I’m very self-motivated and I think it comes from always wanting to do my best. My parents always told me

that most importantly they want me to just do my best and be happy.”

Keffer, the daughter of James Reilly and Valerie, said success is being proud of yourself for reaching a goal without sacrificing your values.

“I believe you can do whatever you set your mind to,” Keffer added. “After the unexpected parts of the last four years, I know if we can push through the pandemic, then we can contribute to any kind of change we want.”

Jack Rose, Philip Simmons High School

Valedictorian, Class of 2022

Jack Rose believes that success is mostly a mindset. “Set goals you want to achieve … and fulfill them with happiness,” Rose said. “Just because there are setbacks or failures doesn’t mean you aren’t successful because success isn’t a straightforward, easy path, but the result of overcoming challenges.”

Rose credits his high school accomplishments to intrinsic motivation, challenging himself with a rigorous course load, always putting forth his best effort, and the ongoing support of his parents, Brad Rose and Kay Durst.

Rose will be attending Georgia Tech majoring in computer science. He wasn’t sure what he wanted to study until he joined the Philip Simmons robotics team and took the role of lead coder, which sparked his interest in computer science.

He also enjoys playing the saxophone, sailing and golf and was a member of Philip Simmons marching band, Berkeley County all county jazz band, the varsity golf team, National Honor Society and several school clubs.

In his graduation speech, Rose emphasized lessons learned through high school; perseverance, group effort, getting along with others and doing your personal best. He sums up his advice in a quote borrowed from his teacher, Mr. Carpenter; “Don’t be a trash human.”

Rose believes anyone can make an impact by being a good person. “Every person who is graduating this year will have some effect on the world whether big or small. Even small actions can grow like falling dominoes to help change the world.”

Julia Wood, Philip Simmons High School

Salutatorian, Class of 2022

Julia Wood said it was an honor being named salutatorian at Philip Simmons High School. “It gave me a great sense of accomplishment because our class is really competitive, so it was surprising and very gratifying.”

Wood will be attending the University of South Carolina Honors College majoring in exercise science. She hopes to pursue pediatric occupational therapy because she loves working with children. “I grew up a USC fan, so it felt right.”

Wood, the daughter of Bobby and Lindsay, said her strong work ethic and time management skills allowed her to be involved in sports and clubs while remaining dedicated to her studies.

She held many offices including captain of the varsity volleyball and softball teams, president of National Honor Society and the recycling club, along with serving on the junior and senior boards and the school improvement council.

“My awesome teachers at Philip Simmons were a source of inspiration and support,” Wood said.

“They pushed me through all my endeavors.”

Wood’s advice to underclassmen is to take advantage of every opportunity to be involved in their high school community because it’s the extracurricular activities that will create lasting memories.

“Success is working towards a goal with your unique passion and grit, putting forth your best effort and being rewarded with the results,” Wood said. “We can impact the world by simply sharing our experiences and spreading positivity for change; even the smallest act of kindness can have an impact on others.”

‘Participation is incredible’: Women’s golf enjoying popularity surge in SC

Then, back to Greenville a day later and looking ahead to a USGA qualifier and the Women’s State Amateur championship to start another week.Go, go, go.

Pinehurst on Monday and Tuesday. Hilton Head Island on Wednesday. Then, back to Greenville a day later and looking ahead to a USGA qualifier and the Women’s State Amateur championship to start another week.

Go, go, go. That’s Clarissa Childs’ challenge these days, and she loves it.

“Crazy but good,” Childs, executive director of the Women’s South Carolina Golf Association, said in explaining her schedule. “If I’m going like this, good things must be happening.”

They are.

Golf has enjoyed an overall boom since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak more than two years ago, and the WSCGA is right there with an amazing growth spurt.

“More and more ladies are playing all the time,” Childs said.

Evidence comes in the form of the WSCGA’s one-day events like the one Wednesday at Hilton Head Island that required Childs’ whirlwind trip to the Lowcountry.

“Participation is incredible, double what we had last year,” said Childs, who took over the WSCGA reins in 2017 after an All-American playing career at South Carolina, competing on the LPGA Tour, serving as an assistant on the USC women’s golf staff and guiding the Newberry College team. “We had 350 or so players at our one-days last year and we’ve had 753 at one this year.

“There are always new ladies who want to play the game, and no matter what her handicap is or how long she’s been playing, we have something for everybody. We want to keep women involved in the game.”

Many of the state’s best female players will test their skills in the Women’s State Amateur that runs Tuesday to Thursday at Fort Jackson Golf Club’s Old Hickory Course. A day earlier, a preview of the stars of tomorrow will unfold at Spring Valley Country Club in qualifying for the U.S. Girls’ Junior Amateur.

“Busy, busy and worth every minute,” Childs said. “Both the qualifier and the Women’s Amateur have really strong fields.”

The top three players in the S.C. Junior Golf Association rankings — Adrian Anderson (Murrells Inlet), Sydney Roberts (Chesnee) and Isabella Rawl (Lexington) — headline the junior qualifier at Spring Valley. Anderson has signed to play at the College of Charleston, and both Roberts and Rawl are Clemson-bound. Also competing will be Ella Stalvey and Caroline Hawkins, members of Blythewood’s Class 5A state championship team.

Furman golfer Sophia Burnett (Bluffton) will defend her title in the Women’s State Amateur against a field that includes players who finishes 2-3-4 a year ago — Emma Schimpf (Daniel Island/College of Charleston), Mary Kathryn Talledo (Spartanburg/College of Charleston) and Roberts. Stalvey and Hawkins both posted top-10s a year ago and will be joined by Blythewood High teammate Paige Paolucci in the 54-hole tournament.

Childs chose Old Hickory, the more challenging on Fort Jackson’s two layouts, and that’s no accident.

“I have played in some charity events at Fort Jackson and love the Old Hickory layout,” she said. “We’ll play about 6,000 yards and have different yardages for the par-3s.

“Yes, it’s the more challenging of the two courses, but this is a state championship and it’s not supposed to be easy.”

After the Women’s Amateur, there are more one-day events, the State Junior Girls championship at Arcadian Shores in North Myrtle Beach, the Georgia/South Carolina junior girls’ challenge matches and the Women’s State Open at Cobblestone Park.

“Lots going on,” Childs said, “and it’s great. For sure, good things are happening in women’s golf.”

Chip shots. Former USC All-American Scott Stevens earned his first professional win in the PGA Tour Canada’s Royal Beach Victoria Open in Victoria, British Columbia. Stevens birdied the 18th hole to pull into a tie for the title, then birdied three straight holes to win the playoff. ... USC women’s coach Kalen Anderson earned the Golf Pride Women’s Golf Coaches Association’s South Region coach of the year honors. With four new players in the lineup, the Gamecocks won school-record five of eight regular-season tournaments and finished 14th in the NCAA Championship. ... Brady Gregor, head coach at High Point College the past five years, has joined the USC men’s program as associate head coach. He replaces Ben Dietrich, who left the program for a position outside of coaching. ... The Sonic Columbia City Women’s Championship will be played June 20-21 at Forest Lake Club. The Midlands Chevy Dealers Columbia Men’s Championship is set for July 14-16 at the Spur at Northwoods.

DISA dribbles to Texas to square off in Southern Regional Cup

Daniel Island Soccer Academy Juventus coach Toni Becvinovski said it took talent, hard work and discipline for his U-13 boys’ team to reach the Southern Regional Cup tournament.It also took various fundraising projects to offset the cost for the trip to the tournament, which will be held June 15-19 in Frisco, Texas.“It’s going to be very exciting for the guys,” said Becvinovski, a native of Australia, who has an impressive soccer resume as a player and coach. “The kids have done the work and the co...

Daniel Island Soccer Academy Juventus coach Toni Becvinovski said it took talent, hard work and discipline for his U-13 boys’ team to reach the Southern Regional Cup tournament.

It also took various fundraising projects to offset the cost for the trip to the tournament, which will be held June 15-19 in Frisco, Texas.

“It’s going to be very exciting for the guys,” said Becvinovski, a native of Australia, who has an impressive soccer resume as a player and coach. “The kids have done the work and the community has responded to make this trip possible.”

The team created a GoFundMe page and held a lunch at Orlando’s Pizza with 10% of the day’s proceeds going to the team. Other businesses responded with donations, which included having its business logos printed on polo shirts and practice jerseys the team will wear in Texas.

The team also is holding a raffle while the DISA Starz U-15 girls got into the fundraising act and raised more than $1,200 via a car wash and bake sale.

“It was a total team effort,” Becvinovski said. “It was a total community effort.”

DISA Juventus qualified for the Southern Regional by winning the South Carolina State Cup tourney, which was held in Augusta, Georgia, on April 23-24.

The team was dominant in state play, outscoring four foes 18-2 to advance. DISA Juventus finished the spring regular league and tournament games with a perfect record: 16-0-0.

“We were very pleased with how the team handled tough situations on the field in all four games,” Becvinovski said of the state tournament. “The scoreline (5-2) in the final game against the 2009 Bulls Boys Red from Augusta was a true reflection of our dominance. The

passing and movement was exceptional. We looked stronger as an attacking force going forward every time. We were solid in defense and aggressive in all parts of the field. It was a good all-around performance from everyone on the team.”

DISA Juventus has spent the past six weeks preparing the team for the rigors of playing in challenging conditions against very competitive teams. The Southern regional includes teams from South Carolina, North Carolina, Florida, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Georgia.

“Based on previous winners in the U-13 age group, the teams out of Texas have won the competition more than other states,” Becvinovski said. “That is generally expected from states like North Carolina, Florida, Georgia and Texas that have large pools of technically and physically gifted players.”

“It will be a tough week for the players against highly rated opposition,” Becvinovski added. “However, once again, I feel there is enough ability and talent on our team to not only be competitive but win the Southern Regional Cup. I have faith in our boys that, if we continue to play with the same skill and intensity as we did in Augusta, we are going to surprise the so-called bigger teams.”

Eighteen players are on the roster, including 12 from Daniel Island. The roster includes goalkeepers James Fisher, Ellis Fetten; defenders Ralston Potts, Lucas Rizzetto, Peyton Owens, Trevor Tonon, Chase Tonon, Matthew Putignano; midfielders JG Wenger, Louis

Rainero, Gunner Khouri, Leighton Thompson, Brooks Wallace and forwards Graham Winterfield, Rex Ferm, Grayson Barna, Charlie Collier, Michael McColl.
