Diamond Engagement Rings in Isle of Palms
Proposing to the love of your life is one of the most beautiful, memorable moments that two people will ever share as a couple.

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

Selling jewelry from years past can be a hard experience. Estate jewelry, in particular, can have sentimental value attached and can be hard to sell. This is because jewelry is often a symbol of achievement or affection, such as your class ring from high school or your grandmother's wedding band. At Colucci's Jewelers, we understand the connection to old jewelry and appreciate the memories and value you have with these antique pieces.
In addition to the personal value, antique and estate jewelry can be quite valuable from a monetary standpoint. Estate jewelry is extremely popular in this day and age. Many Lowcountry locals are selling their vintage pieces to trusted jewelry stores in Isle of Palms, SC, like Colucci's Jewelers.

Message From The Isle Of Palms Mayor: July 2022
Happy Fourth of July! I hope you’re planning to take part in the golf cart parade and our fireworks show.

Happy Fourth of July! I hope you’re planning to take part in the golf cart parade and our fireworks show. On Monday, July 4, the parade starts at 10 a.m. at 4th Avenue and Charleston Boulevard with setup starting at 9 a.m. Fireworks start at 9 p.m. at Front Beach.
Ever wonder how fireworks got associated with the July 4 holiday? The first fireworks were used as early as 200 B.C. The tradition of setting off fireworks on the Fourth of July began in Philadelphia on July 4, 1777, during the first organized celebration of Independence Day. Ship’s cannon fired a 13-gun salute in honor of the 13 colonies. The Pennsylvania Evening Post reported: “at night there was a grand exhibition of fireworks (which began and concluded with 13 rockets) on the Commons, and the city was beautifully illuminated.” That same night, the Sons of Liberty set off fireworks over Boston Common. The tradition of patriotic celebration became even more widespread after the War of 1812, in which the United States again faced Great Britain. In 1870, the U.S. Congress made July 4 a federal holiday; in 1941, the provision was expanded to grant a paid holiday to all federal employees.
What’s the Latest?
Construction of two of three major projects – the outfalls at 30th and 36th avenues – has begun. This project will significantly help our stormwater runoff management. This work will disrupt part of the Harbor Golf Course through the end of June and require road closures in August for Waterway and 30th and in October for Waterway and 36th. We will be posting notices to our residents in these areas and via social media and the Island Eye as we get closer to these dates.
These road closures were scheduled intentionally to avoid peak summer crowds. Also, since we are in hurricane season, our contractor is aware of our needs should an evacuation arise and provisions will be made to cover any open road areas in the event of an evacuation.
Underground Utility Conversion –
The city has been working with Dominion Energy to identify areas we can move the overhead utility lines underground during the next few years.
The first project will be at 21st and Palm Blvd. and construction is scheduled for Fall/Winter 2022. We have other undergrounding projects scheduled for the near future and we will update you as we make progress on those.
Comprehensive Drainage Master Plan –
The next phase(s) of our drainage work is still scheduled to be completed by year end. Our vendor is conducting an island wide review to identify and plan for improvements in high priority areas.
Rec Center –
We are seeking proposals from interested bidders for the construction of improvements to the outdoor basketball courts and a new pickleball court.
Proposals are due to the city by early July with construction planned for this Fall.
Lots happening at our Marina! The Islander 71 is open, and the crowds are large and the views are great! Also, I hope you have had a chance to use the new public dock or take part in the Explorer Series for Residents. In partnership with Coastal Expeditions, we have developed a series of six itineraries exclusively for Isle of Palms residents. Learn more about the place you call home and how to enjoyably explore it on your own. The outings depart from the new IOP Public Dock at the Marina. Reservations are on a first-come, firstserved basis, and each is limited to 15 participants.
These will be free for IOP residents. Residents will be expected to show proof of residency or proof of ownership upon arrival. The dates for additional outings will be released this month. More details are available at iop.net.
You may recall the city received a letter requestingapproval of assignment of the existing leases held by Marina Joint Ventures, Inc. and Marina Outpost, LLC with the city of Isle of Palms to Morgan Creek LLC, same ownership group that owns Bohicket, Old Village Yacht Club, St. Johns Yacht Harbor and Seabreeze marinas. We continue to have discussions and review due diligence information with the potential new marina operator.
Since any assignment requires the city’s prior consent, we have begun our due diligence review process and arehopeful to have this process completed soon.
1) We requested SCDOT add a camera to their 511 system at Palm Boulevard and 14th Avenue. Our camera pointing toward the IOP Connector bridge has been a part of the system for some time. The recent addition will allow you to view down Palm Boulevard towards 21st Avenue. Hopefully, this will help as you plan you trips around and off the island more efficiently.
2) The study being done on the bridge is progressing well. SCDOT’s consultant continues to collect traffic counts and observe traffic flows during our peak season. They are still on target to come back in the fall with recommendations for alternative bridge configurations.
July 4 – Parade at 10 a.m. starting at 4th Avenue and Charleston and Fireworks at 9 p.m. at Front Beach.
July 21 – Farmers market at Rec Center.
July 23 – IOP Beach Run.
July 29 – Coffee with the Mayor – At 9 a.m. on the last Friday of every month, I am hosting coffee with residents who wish to talk about city projects, issues and concerns. To support local businesses, the locations will rotate around venues on our island – however, during our busy season, we will host this at City Hall, second floor or the Rec Center.
You can find information for upcoming meetings on the IOP website Calendar (IOP.net) under Upcoming Events.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve! See you around the island.
Phillip Pounds, Mayor

Five Stunning Ecotourism-Focused Hotels On The Carolina Coast
While the twin states of North and South Carolina are equipped with bustling cities like Charleston, Charlotte, and Raleigh, one of the most admirable attributes of the entire region is its sprawling shoreline. From Daufuskie Island to the Outer Banks, there’s no shortage of pristine forests, steaming swamps, and picturesque beaches to explore all across the coast—and these natural wonders come complete with top-tier accommodations right nearby.As you plan your next foray into the wilderness of the Carolinas, these charmin...
While the twin states of North and South Carolina are equipped with bustling cities like Charleston, Charlotte, and Raleigh, one of the most admirable attributes of the entire region is its sprawling shoreline. From Daufuskie Island to the Outer Banks, there’s no shortage of pristine forests, steaming swamps, and picturesque beaches to explore all across the coast—and these natural wonders come complete with top-tier accommodations right nearby.
As you plan your next foray into the wilderness of the Carolinas, these charming properties are perfect for getting up-close-and-personal with some of the region’s most fascinating flora and fauna.
With more than 1,500 acres of surrounding wilderness to explore, Wild Dunes Resort serves as the perfect base for immersing oneself in the natural beauty of South Carolina. While the property is perfect for sunbathing and swimming, true ecotourism aficionados should be sure to book an excursion to Capers Island, a pristine barrier island located just east of Isle of Palms. Upon arrival, guests will embark on a wildlife safari that offers the opportunity to spot ospreys, bald eagles, and even bottlenose dolphins, followed by a trip to Capers Island’s pristine Boneyard Beach, a stretch of shoreline that’s home to large swathes of petrified driftwood.
Located just south of downtown Bluffton, the Montage Palmetto Bluff is a shining example of how to offer first-rate hospitality while existing in harmony with the surrounding wilderness. With 20,000 acres of Carolina Lowcountry to explore across Palmetto Bluff, non-human residents include alligators, white-tailed deer, bobcats, and a massive array of native birds and insects—all of which can be discovered during a kayak excursion or while trekking along one of the area’s many hiking trails. As an added bonus, guests with a serious passion for wildlife are welcome to attend a lecture or join a research expedition with PhD-level staff at the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy, an organization focused on preserving the biodiversity of the Palmetto Bluff community.
Planning an outdoor adventure-focused getaway on North Carolina’s idyllic Outer Banks? Look no further than Sanderling Resort, a palatial property located on the coast of Duck. Beach access, a full-service spa, and three on-property pools are just a few of the plush amenities awaiting guests, but for a truly memorable stay, a foray into the wilderness is an absolutely essential activity. Equipped with a diverse array of excursions focused on land, sea, and air, visitors are welcome to soar above sand dunes on a hang gliding tour, spot the Outer Banks’ famous wild horses on a beach safari, or cruise along the coast in search of bottlenose dolphins.
North Carolina’s Crystal Coast is renowned for its abundant natural beauty, and few properties are as dedicated to preserving it as the Beaufort Hotel. Sustainability is a guiding principle on the property, with initiatives focusing on water conservation, LEED certification, and single-use plastic reduction in place to keep local wildlife safe—and this steadfast commitment to the environment has spurred massive potential for ecotourism in the surrounding area. Just south of the property, the sprawling Rachel Carson Reserve is a paradise for visiting wildlife enthusiasts, equipped with native shorebirds, river otters, sea turtles, and even wild horses.
Officially chartered in 1705, the tiny town of Bath is one of North Carolina’s most underrated historic gems—and the idyllic Inn On Bath Creek serves as the perfect base for exploring the area. Each morning, guests can look forward to a hearty three-course breakfast, then head into town to grab a kayak and set off to explore the region. During the winter months, the nearby Lake Mattamuskeet offers a wealth of migrating waterfowl ranging from snow geese to tundra swans, while Goose Creek State Park is a top-tier destination for basking in the idyllic beauty of The Tar Heel State’s native cypress swamps.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority will resume its Beach Reach Shuttle service later this month.
The agency announced Wednesday the free seasonal park-and-ride shuttle that provides a connection between Mount Pleasant and the Isle of Palms, will relaunch on May 28.
The service will operate on Saturdays and Sundays through Sept. 5, as well as on Memorial, Independence and Labor Days.
“We work hard at CARTA to make sure we’re providing a cost-effective and efficient way of getting people where they need to go – and, in the summer months, that includes the beach,” CARTA Board of Directors Chairman Mike Seekings said. “Thanks to our Isle of Palms, Mount Pleasant and Towne Centre partners, we’re able to once again make that happen, and we look forward to re-introducing our riders to the Beach Reach Shuttle.”
Each Saturday, the shuttle will run every hour from 9:15 a.m. (first departure from Towne Centre) to 5:30 p.m. (final departure from Isle of Palms). On Sundays, in order to improve efficiency and ease necessary transfers, the shuttle will run every hour from 9:40 a.m. to 5:55 p.m.
“The Town of Mount Pleasant is proud to stand alongside CARTA, Isle of Palms and our very own Towne Centre to bring the Beach Reach Shuttle back into service,” Town of Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie said. “I hope folks throughout our community and beyond will join us in taking advantage of this exciting opportunity to make the most of this summer.”
“This has been a team effort in the truest sense of the term, and we’re glad to be working alongside our remarkable partners to increase beach access and share the beauty of the Isle of Palms shoreline this summer,” City of Isle of Palms Mayor Philip Pounds said.
Riders should plan to arrive at least five minutes prior to the scheduled departure time.
Beach Reach riders will be able to board the shuttle at stop No. 715, behind the Belk Men’s store in Mount Pleasant Towne Centre, and disembark at 9th Avenue and Ocean Boulevard, adjacent to the Isle of Palms beach access.
