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

11th Hanahan military fest celebrates veterans, offers post-service resources
BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Hundreds gathered in Hanahan on Saturday for a full-day affair dedicated to honoring the nation’s veterans.Several community members say it is vital to prioritize our Lowcountry military before, during and after their service.“That’s what it’s all about,” Navy Veteran Jerry Oldham says. “Right here.

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Hundreds gathered in Hanahan on Saturday for a full-day affair dedicated to honoring the nation’s veterans.
Several community members say it is vital to prioritize our Lowcountry military before, during and after their service.
“That’s what it’s all about,” Navy Veteran Jerry Oldham says. “Right here. I’m one of you all, you’re one of us. We’re in this all together.”
After two tours in Vietnam and several years of service, Oldham now calls the Lowcountry his home.
He believes post-military resources didn’t always exist, but they are more important than ever.
“There’s more programs, opportunities, more things that look to help veterans today that weren’t there in the past.”
400,000 veterans currently live in the state out of 20 million nationwide, according to studies done by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.
28% of them are experiencing a disability of some kind, whether physical or mental health-related.
Besides the day filled with speeches, songs, treats and trinket shopping, a handful of vendors were in attendance to support transitioning and post-service veterans.
“Whether it’s a lifelong career or just a few years, they come out different than when they went in,” City of Hanahan Mayor Christie Rainwater says. “They often need services and support.”
“Education, employment, nutrition, housing, social networking, all the different things which hug a veteran through their transition,” Palmetto Pathfinder Jean Brooks adds.
Palmetto Pathfinder is one of the many options available to veterans who need assistance.
It is a three-day mentorship program through the statewide Department of Veterans Affairs.
“A Pathfinder is a mentor for other veterans,” Brooks says. “We can speak to each other in our own language and provide resources.”
Oldham says it is heartwarming to see advocacy and celebration from the community in a time where it is becoming “less common.”
“It kind of hurts me sometimes, the things that happen today because people just don’t appreciate it.”
The City of Hanahan has been a long-time supporter with a population consisting of mostly military families.
They say they hope to continue to foster relationships and work toward making resources more accessible until the festivities start again next year.
“To those post-military, say ‘Hey, how can we support you, what are you in need of? You have served us, now we want to serve you.’”

Hanahan ... home sweet home. I regret to say I wasn’t born here. But I sure got here as fast as I could.
Growing up in Hanahan would have felt like an American dream.
However, I truly believe that not growing up here has created a deeper appreciation for where I now choose to live and raise my family. While the location is ideal and central to the Charleston region, it’s the culture and family values that I treasure most.
Throughout this year, Hanahan has been celebrating its 50th birthday. This area was populated as far back as the 1600s, and one would find plantations where homes, parks and businesses now stand.
Sir John Yeamans founded Yeamans Hall, and brothers Arthur and Edward Middleton established Otranto Plantation to name a few of the first settlers.
After Reconstruction, the Charleston region grew, and so did its needs, especially for water.
To meet that need, the Commissioners of Public Works was established and purchased the Goose Creek Reservoir.
It later developed a vast system of tunnels and a pumping station to supply potable water to the region.
In addition to being a businessman and influential leader of this time, J. Ross Hanahan was named the first chairman of the Commissioners of Public Works. Upon his departure, the pumping station was named after him, and the area became known as Hanahan.
Schools were built. Business were created. Homes were established.
In September of 1973 (only a year after North Charleston officially became a city), the city of Hanahan was officially incorporated.
The city is still known for its award-winning schools, sports and community culture.
I recently co-authored a book called “Hanahan,” released by Arcadia publishing, as a part of its Images of America series.
When we met with people to learn about how Hanahan came to be, the stories weren’t just logistical. They were personal.
Stories of jumping off the train trestle into the water, dads coming home from work from the shipyard or paper mill, students at Senior Hill, first dates at the Arcadia Rollerdrome at Port Park, fishing at Mabeline Lodge and more.
Many stories started with “One time ...” or “Back in the day ...”
While the formation of the city itself is so important, just as important are the stories of the daily experiences of the people who became the city of Hanahan.
I began by referring to Hanahan as home sweet home. Many reading this will think of a place, a location, maybe even a house.
However, those who live in Hanahan know that home sweet home means the people, because through this extraordinary community one quickly learns that home is not a place but a person, or in our case, the people who surround us.
Christie Rainwater is Mayor of Hanahan.

HANAHAN, S.C. (WCIV) — Learning how to save lives one class at a time is the goal of a course at Hanahan Middle School.
"Our principal came to me last year , wanting to start a new class," teacher Susan Hill said. "And we did."
The new class, called Introduction to Health Professions, brings the medical world to the classroom.
"We go through a lot about the body systems, different tools used by health professionals, and different types of jobs," Hill said.
For students to get a complete understanding of what it’s like to work in the medical field, health professionals from the community are invited to come speak, including Rodney Profit, a training captain with Boeing Security and Fire.
Learning about these jobs isn't the only takeaway for the students; they leave the course certified in basic life support.
"We do everything from adult child infant, CPR, choking first aid, and AED usages to get these students certified in basic life support," Profit said. "Students are given a chance to kind of look and explore what's out there for them and letting them know that there are no hurdles. If there are any hurdles, they can transverse those hurdles, but no one can tell them they can't do what they want to do.”
This encouragement has left students with the world at their fingertips.
"This has opened a lot more like pathways," student Lianny Martinez said.
Student, Savannah Wika said, "I would say it really like helped me realize what I really want to do for like a job. It really opened up what's happening when you go to the hospital."
The course also includes off-campus field trips. The class recently visited Charleston Southern University (CSU), where students got a tour of the campus.
For Hill, she believes each and every one of the students are more than capable of accomplishing their dreams.
"I just hope they understand how valuable they are and what a future they have," she said. "They have their whole lives in front of them and I'm just really excited to see what they do with that."
Hill says she could not be prouder of her students and teaching them has been a rewarding experience.

Musicians and business owners across the Charleston area will be celebrated for their achievements at the annual Lowcountry Music Hall of Fame.
The idea to create a local celebration for the area’s musicians came from Michael Davis in 2015. Davis owns the 25-plus-year-old Ye Olde Music Shop in Hanahan. The store is advertised as the largest Gibson, Fender, Martin, Taylor and Paul Reed Smith dealer in South Carolina. Davis was inspired by his business and customers to create a new Lowcountry tradition that went beyond his beloved shop.
The Hall of Fame has inducted several well-known Charleston artists, as well as some “unsung heroes” who can benefit from the recognition. The inaugural ceremony in 2015 inducted local music stores, politicians and music schools, with the tradition continuing into 2023.
The Lowcountry Hall of Fame will introduce 15 artists, business owners and radio personalities into the 2023 catalogue.
Attendees can enjoy food trucks, music mastery and good times with local music lovers at the induction ceremony for the 2023 Lowcountry Music Hall of Fame at 1 p.m. Oct. 22 at the Hanahan Amphitheater, 3100 Amphitheater Ave.
