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

More than 30 high school baseball teams from multiple states will compete for titles in the 52nd annual Hanahan Invitational Tournament set for April 11-14.
The tournament has two divisions named for former Hanahan High Hawks baseball coaches, Tom Hatfield and Bill Steadman. Hatfield started the HIT in 1970 as a way to get a few local teams together for games during spring break. Steadman followed Hatfield at HHS and the tournament eventually swelled into a premier spring break stop as more teams from outside South Carolina accepted invitations to visit the Lowcountry.
States represented in the 2022 HIT are South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and New York. Another squad will make its way into town from Washington, D.C.
“We do have some strong teams coming in,” Hanahan coach Brian Mitchell said. “We know locally we have some great teams but we have our hands full trying to win it. The team from D.C. is the team to beat. Their head coach is something like 316-80. They’re loaded. There is some quality baseball coming to town. We’re going to have to hunker down and play well.”
Eight of the local clubs are ranked inside the top 10 of their respective classifications by the South Carolina Baseball Coaches Association.
Last spring, Summerville High School rallied from a five-run deficit to edge Blessed Trinity from Roswell, Ga., with a run in the bottom of the seventh. It was the difference in the Green Wave’s 8-7 victory in the championship game. The 2021 field was smaller due to COVID concerns.
Summerville went on to capture the Class AAAAA Lower State title in 2021.
“It’s a good gauge to see how you’re playing going into the end of the season,” Mitchell said. “If you do well in the HIT, you’re going to go on and do well in the playoffs.”
Host sites for the first two days of the tournament are Hanahan, Goose Creek, James Island, Ashley Ridge, Summerville, West Ashley, Bishop England and Wando. Semifinal sites will be determined later. Hanahan will host the championship games on April 14.
There is also a junior varsity division, which was won by the host school last spring. Fifteen of the 17 squads set to compete are from the Charleston area.

High turnout rates during first year of early voting in South Carolina

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Just six days before the primary election day, Charleston and Berkeley County have some of the highest turnout numbers in the state during the first year of early voting.
In both counties, people were flooding in and out casting their votes by the minute. Hanahan Library is one of three polling locations in Berkeley County that’s seeing a steady increase in voters day by day.
“Berkeley County is getting good percentage coming out early,” Doreen Thompson, one of the polling managers at Hanahan Library, said. “I can’t say overall how the percentage is, but for this area that we’re working right now, we’re getting fairly well.”
Records show that around 3 million people were registered to vote in 2020, but only about 22% of those people voted.
Isaac Cramer, the director of the Charleston County Board of Elections, is one of the main people in charge of making this happen.
“With our equipment and our poll managers and our training and our recruitment, we’re expecting a high turnout,” Cramer said. “Reality will probably be about that 20% number, but we are expecting a high turnout if that happens, so voters don’t have a long wait as they head into the polls.”
As of now, Charleston County has the fourth-highest number of early voters in the state. In 2018, only 1,700 people cast their votes in the first 30 days using in-person absentee voting. This year, the numbers have doubled to 3,600 in the first six days using early voting.
“Our intent with every election is to find access for every voter,” Cramer said. “So, Charleston, we’ve always led the state in ballots casts ahead of election day. We were actually the model for this legislation with the off-site early voting locations, but with the tight window of time between legislation passing and early voting starting, we weren’t able to expand to multiple locations across the county. But in November, we will have seven locations for early voting. So, we do anticipate this county to lead the state in early voting as we have had in the past.”
Cramer says that if you have not voted already, please visit scvotes.gov to find your polling location. He says he wants you to be best prepared on June 14.

South Carolina man wins $100K lottery with a strategy he saw on TLC’s ‘Lottery Changed my Life.’

Who said winning the lottery was all about luck and not about strategy?
Well, one man has proven that theory wrong by using a strategy he saw on television.
Many may be wondering what exactly the strategy was to crack the code, so to speak.
According to a press release from the South Carolina Education Lottery, his strategy was to spend $25 a week playing the lottery for three months.
So how did this work out for him?
He told the organization that on his first week, he won $500. In his seventh week, he struck gold by winning $100,000 on a Powerball ticket.
This just proves it may be good to try new things.
“I didn’t even know how to play Powerball,” the South Carolina man said within the press release.
Taking a chance from what he learned from the TLC series, he bought the Powerball ticket at a Kwik Fill gas station in Hanahan, S.C., the press release said.
The press release further explained after he bought the ticket, he at first thought he matched just two numbers. Then his wife took a look and noticed there were more matching numbers – just one short of the jackpot drawing.
But, to their surprise, the ticket was enough to win him a total of $100,000, which was double the amount from the initial $50,000 prize, since he spent an extra $1 on his ticket, the press release said.
Don’t think the man did all this work without getting himself something nice.
The man used the winnings to buy a car and still plans on finishing what he started – the $25-a-week strategy.
“I’m going to finish out the three months,” he said.
So, was the man winning pure luck or cunning strategy? You decide.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCBD) – Hanahan residents are still frustrated over trains that continue to block area roadways for hours at a time.
One train was seen blocking Hanahan Road for hours Wednesday morning, and before that, Hanahan town administrator Mike Cochran told News 2 a train sat blocking roads for more than 20 hours straight recently.
The road the trains are blocking is a major thoroughfare for people driving to and from Rivers Avenue and Hanahan.
“We’ve got about 7,000 cars a day that cross the tracks right here, and in the last several months, we’ve had multiple instances where the tracks just get blocked by a parked train,” said Cochran.
Drivers are forced to add additional time to their commute; it also slows emergency responses.
“From the city’s perspective, if you’re trying to get an ambulance through the city, you’re crossing here in order to get over to the hospitals,” he explained.
Technically, blocking the road is illegal according to more-than-100-year-old state laws. But the fine is only $5 to $20, and it is difficult to enforce.
“We have contacted CSX and spoke with them on several occasions, and they’re aware of it, but it really is frustrating for our residents and frustrating for everybody involved,” said Cochran. “Last week, it sat there for over 30 hours.”
Cochran said he has a plan that may give residents a way to know when a train is stopped in the area. The county owns the library at the corner of Murray Drive and Highland Park Road. He’s asked about placing a camera there.
“I said is there a way that we could put a camera, or the county put a camera, on the library? If they were to put a camera on that library and point it toward the tracks, we would have a constant feed of exactly what the status of the tracks are.”
The video would also be streamed online.
“We’ll have that ability to push that information out, so while it’s not a perfect solution, it will at least allow an option because right now the only way you know if the tracks are blocked it’s the drive to them.”
News 2 reached out to CSX to see if they have any plans to change their policy of blocking trains for hours at a time. We are waiting to hear back.
