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

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCBD) – On Saturday, the 9th Annual Carolina Children’s Charity Cornhole Tournament and Band Blast came to the Windjammer. The annual event was postponed in 2020 due to the pandemic, however, many were happy to see it back on in 2021.
Sonya Beale, the Executive Director for the Carolina Children’s Charity (CCC) said the day was all about local people, helping local children.
The organization has been operating since 1987, focused on Lowcountry children with birth defects and or childhood diseases gain access to medications, equipment, lodging, and therapy. Through the years and $4.5 million, they have assisted thousands of children under the age of 18 in Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, and Berkeley County.
Beale said the organization’s assistance comes in handy with insurance gaps that are often left for children. She said, “even if a family even has really good insurance, the child might have diabetes and they might be on 9 medications, so they have quite a hefty bit of copays, so they can apply to the charity for a grant that would assist with those medication copays with that, related to that specific childhood disease.”
On Saturday, the bands that participated in the Band Blast were the Shakin’ Martinis, King Tide Rising, The Corrodatones, Bluesphere, Scotty Oliver Band, and the South Stand Band.
The Cornhole tournament also brought out some other Lowcountry favorites such as News 2’s Evening Anchor, Brendan Clark. Clark said he has been participating in the annual event for as long as it has been ongoing. He said in 2019, his team was a runner-up and they planned vengeance to win the title of 1st place.
Clark ultimately took home the title of 1st place with his cornhole partner Jeremy Kimball. While vengeance was inflicted, Clark said he was a part of the 9th annual event not for the wins but because the money raised here in the Lowcountry—stays here in the Lowcountry.
You know, when you play cornhole it is about wins and losses a lot of the time but not in this tournament. It’s really about supporting the cause. So wins and losses aren’t necessarily the most important thing, we are just out here, having a great time and supporting a great cause.Brendan Clark, News 2 Anchor, Cornhole Competitor
If you were unable to make it to the 9th Annual Carolina Children’s Charity Cornhole Tournament and Band Blast, the CCC will be hosting an Oyster Roast and Silent/Live Auction at Water Edge on October 28th.

There have been a number of news stories recently about the Isle of Palms, some of which paint the city and residents in a negative light. As a resident and president of a newly formed organization of homeowners and property owners on the island, I want to share our perspective.
Isle of Palms has one of our state’s most treasured natural wonders — its beach. IOP is also home to a growing number of residents and visitors who are attracted to beach life and activities.
As residents, we understand the rights of visitors to access our beaches and we welcome visitors from across the Lowcountry, state and nation. The energy, enthusiasm and economic boost they bring is part of what makes our community great.
We were excited to see families visiting IOP for the Memorial Day holiday as we remembered heroes who gave their lives in service to our nation. It was also a respite from the controversy surrounding the way Columbia politicians have overreached and undermined the ability of IOP officials to do their most important job: keeping residents and visitors safe.
Our beaches are free and accessible. That issue has been unnecessarily confused with traffic volume and the number of vehicles parking on the island. There must be a balance between the rights and responsibilities of residents with those of visitors, and the best way to accomplish that is with a locally managed plan designed to provide safe access to our island for visitors while maintaining a safe environment for our families who live here.
One-size-fits-all Columbia mandates on localities do not work any better than one-size-fits-all mandates on states from Washington, D.C.
IOP always has been seriously committed to providing parking and beach access to visitors. You may not realize that IOP provides more than twice the number of parking spaces per mile and per public beach access point as the average South Carolina beach community.
With an average of 378 parking spaces per mile of public beach, we offer more public parking than Edisto Beach, Folly Beach, Surfside Beach, North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach, to name a few.
We also take pride in the beauty of our community. Keeping the island clean is part of keeping it safe. IOP residents fund beach access trash receptacles and pickup.
Residents volunteer their time to conduct beachfront litter collection every week during the summer. They also hold neighborhood block litter pickups throughout the year.
IOP offers visitors amenities such as a recreation center, marina and two city-owned public boat ramps. The IOP Recreation Center hosts users from surrounding communities each day of every season.
Visitors use the marina, purchased by IOP residents, for their boating needs. Well-maintained public boat ramps offer families and sportsmen alike a perfect way to take advantage of the water surrounding the area.
With summer in full swing, IOP residents have formed the Barrier Island Preservation Alliance to highlight all of these things that make our community special, as well as to address the unique challenges we face. We hope other barrier islands will join us as we grow.
As always, we hope to see many of you on July Fourth. Usually, IOP residents and visitors celebrate one of our favorite holidays with an incredible display of fireworks. Unfortunately, public health considerations have forced us to cancel fireworks two years in a row.
Nevertheless, we look forward to seeing new faces on the island, whether they be locals or visitors, new residents or old friends, not only on the Fourth but every day thereafter.
Bev Miller is president and executive director of Barrier Island Preservation Alliance.

Tidal Wave Water Sports allowed to remain open on IOP as eviction case awaits court

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCIV) — The owner of Tidal Wave Water Sports says a judge ruled his company could stay open through summer 2021 in its current location at the Isle of Palms Marina.
Charleston County says a judge has not decided on the case or ruled the business could stay open through the summer.
Owner Michael Feim says the judge sided with Tidal Wave because the city of Isle of Palms did not give enough notice before deciding to evict the business last year.
“Last year, and the summer before, I basically spent practically every day trying to fight the city on us staying here. To the point where it has affected my ability to run the business," said Feim.
The City of Isle of Palms responded to the claims on Friday with a statement saying, "Tidalwave does not have the City’s permission to be on the premises as their lease with the City expired last Fall. Due to the delays associated with Covid-19, the eviction process has been delayed since last year in the Court system, but the City remains hopeful the Court will take up this matter very shortly and formally evict the tenant in the coming months as Covid-19 restrictions are being eased nationwide and also here in our local court system."
Isle of Palms city council voted in August 2020 not to renew Tidal Wave's lease. Council members suggested at the time the space could be converted to a public park with water access, or a green space.
Feim says he signed four separate five-year leases with the city in 2010. He claims the third lease should've renewed in October 2020, leading him to believe Tidal Wave can stay at the marina through 2025.
It is unclear when the matter will be resolved but Feim says the battle has already taken its toll.
“Lawyer fees aside, the amount of money that it has cost us. Even with, direct labor and workforce. You know, the ability to expand and just look in different directions has been literally stalled because we’ve had to focus on staying here,” Feim said.

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCIV) — A representative from SCDOT confirmed the installation of the diagonal parking lot in Isle of Palms is slated to begin on Monday.
Council approved the plan in a special called meeting Friday.
The parking spaces will be at a 60 degree angle that the SCDOT says would allow more room to back out without hitting pavement. The proposal came last month following months of back and forth between the town and SCDOT.
The vote was 6-1, with two council members not attending the meeting or casting a vote. Councilman Jimmy Ward was the lone no.
“It’s been a process and I know 2020 was certainly a crazy year, with the COVID and the restrictions so, we’ve been working with the city since the first of the year to look at a revised parking plan for Palm Boulevard, and we’ve worked very collaboratively with not only the city staff but also the chief and looked at how we can really address safety and operations," said Leland Colvin with SCDOT.
Colvin added that some surveyors were on-site throughout the week. This resulted in some changes being made to the spaces. They were widened from nine and a half feet to ten feet, in order to give more room for cars to back out without hitting the road.
Some Isle of Palms residents expressed concerns to ABC News 4 regarding the proposed parking, calling it "dangerous." At least one of them still considers them to be problematic, despite the changes that were made last week.
“I’ve always been to maximize the number of safe, angled parking spaces, whatever that angle happens to be to allow safe parking. Safe parking is to be able to back out and be limited because of the traffic flow down Palm BLVD, to be able to pull out in a safe manner," said IOP resident, Ted McKnight.
McKnight also mentioned that he, and all the residents he knows, are for more parking. They just want it to be as safe as possible.
“Whatever that maximum number is, that is safe, is fine with everyone I know. So, we’re not trying to privatize the island or anything like that. That’s a nasty rumor that got started by somebody else who’s trying to misinform the public.”
State Representative Joe Bustos, who has a bill in the Statehouse that would give control of parking on state roads to local municipalities, said, “In South Carolina we don’t like folks from Washington coming down and telling us how to do things. Well, our municipalities have elected leadership that in most cases do a very very good job, and they should be allowed to do that job."
