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

Restoration set to begin seabird sanctuary
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Construction to restore the Crab Bank Seabird Sanctuary in Charleston Harbor could begin as soon as Tuesday.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Construction to restore the Crab Bank Seabird Sanctuary in Charleston Harbor could begin as soon as Tuesday.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Charleston District on Monday announced that Virginia-based contractor Norfolk Dredging Company was moving hydraulic pipe into the area for its dredge to begin pumping operations as soon as Tuesday.
The project calls for the one-time placement of approximately 660,000 cubic yards of compatible material from the Charleston Harbor Deepening project to create approximately 32 acres of of prime nesting habitat above mean water for nesting birds.
The project, sponsored by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, is expected to benefit the nesting and migrating seabird species that used the sanctuary prior to Hurricane Irma removing the last remaining bit of nesting ground in 2017.
Civil Work Chief Brian Williams says the cost of the project was around $230,000 because the material used was already being dredged.
“The project for Crab Bank cost about $230,000 because we’re already dredging the material anyway,” Williams said. “It was really just the cost difference to place it over there on Crab Bank.”
The project has been in the works since 2018 when the planning and fundraising for the project began. The Corps of Engineers says federal grants along with contributions raised by non-profit groups, businesses and private citizens will fund a majority of the work.
“This project would not have been possible without the amazing community support and assistance from Audubon South Carolina, the Coastal Conservation League, and Coastal Expeditions, as well as all of the individual donors who contributed to this effort,” SCDNR Director Robert Boyles said. “Communication, fundraising and awareness have been key to the success that we hope to see this spring as birds return to the newly established footprint of Crab Bank.”
The Corps of Engineers estimates the project to take approximately two months to complete and are urging those that use the area for recreation to give them a little space during that time.
“The entire process should take about two months,” Williams said. “So really we would encourage folks to give us a little breathing room for two months and then once the equipment is demobilized and moved offf site, get out there, paddle around like you normally would.”

Weekly Tri-County COVID-19 case rate drops for 1st time since early July
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - MUSC says the seven-day average of new COVID-19 infections in the Tri-County area dropped 3% for the first time in more than two months. MUSC College of Medicine Professor and global health specialist Dr. Michael Sweat said his team was expecting a drop to happen. “I really do think we’re approaching the peak,” Sweat said.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - MUSC says the seven-day average of new COVID-19 infections in the Tri-County area dropped 3% for the first time in more than two months.
MUSC College of Medicine Professor and global health specialist Dr. Michael Sweat said his team was expecting a drop to happen.
“I really do think we’re approaching the peak,” Sweat said.
But he warned people not to fall into a trap of thinking COVID-19 is gone.
“We are at a pivotal point because of schools and universities opening. I believe those are fairly strong forces for transmission,” he said. “We’ve seen huge outbreaks in colleges. And a lot of kids in schools are picking it up. School transmissions are happening, and I think that could push it back up, but I do think we’re on the path to seeing at least an initial decline. Hopefully, it’ll keep going.”
He said summer COVID surges in other places have tended to last eight to 12 weeks.
“They have a sharp curve up and a pretty sharp curve down,” he said. “Louisiana is definitely coming down, substantially and quickly. Mississippi - another sharp decline occurring. Alabama, it’s coming down, although it’s early. Georgia, same way. Florida, major decline.”
Every state that preceded South Carolina had the same pattern in about the same amount of time, he said. He called the Delta variant’s impact, which has played out over the past several weeks, shocking.
“I did not expect Delta to be as bad as it is, and it just tells you how that virus can find the little clusters of people and move around,” he said.
He also said there is a real chance of another wave coming into the winter just like last year.
“That was our worst wave yet,” he said. “There’s another potential for that, so it’s important to keep people’s eye on that.”
The most recent release from the state’s Department of Health and Environmental Control showed a three-day total of 14,763 new cases and 158 deaths from COVID-19. DHEC reports three-day totals on Mondays because it does not release numbers on weekends. Monday’s totals include test results from the previous Thursday through Saturday.
The latest three-day total of new COVID-19 cases statewide released Monday showed 14,763 new cases. That figure was down almost 2,600 from the previous three-day total of 17,346.

New initiative to expand mental health services in CCSD schools

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — A new initiative aims to address mental health and the rise in student anxiety and depression within the Charleston County School District.
On Monday, Boeing South Carolina and CCSD each granted $1 million to MUSC’s Boeing Center for Children’s Wellness. The center has been working directly with schools for the last 10 years with a focus on wellness programs and obesity. This grant money will allow MUSC to build upon its student wellness services and include mental health prevention, support and treatment.
“Schools are where we can reach all the children, not just the ones that come into our offices therefore we can provide equitable care. This is very important because a healthy kid is a better learner,” said Dr. Janice Key, Professor of Pediatrics at MUSC and Director of the BCCW.
She said the number of children seeking mental health help at MUSC’s emergency department has increased by 30 percent since the start of the pandemic.
While details are still being worked out, Key said the initiative will include therapy with counselors and psychiatrists.
“This initiative is to fill in the gap and provide services we don’t have or we need more of and to knit it into the system the schools have in place already so it will become already part of the care of that student,” said Key. “I hope when we finish creating this new version of our initiative that it will move beyond the general foundation of wellness all the way up the pyramid to provide services that are needed to the few children that are having problems at the top.”
Support will also include training teachers to help students deal with stress and find appropriate coping mechanisms.
“Helping students with anxiety, with depression and a number of other different issues that they’re facing, this helps us with the learning curve, this helps us with discipline problems we’re dealing with in schools from these Covid situations that we’re dealing with on a daily basis,” said Rev. Dr. Eric Mack, CCSD Board of Trustees Chairman.
“When they’re dealing with anxiety, dealing with stress in the classroom it makes them get to the point of not being able to engage into their learning environment, so this will help them open up and learn better," he said

Nicholas could hit Texas as hurricane; 2 other systems being watched
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC/AP) - As Tropical Storm Nicholas edges toward Texas, the National Hurricane Center is watching two systems in the Atlantic, one of which could eventually develop off the coast of the Carolinas. Tropical Storm Nicholas is gathering strength and threatening to blow ashore in Texas as a hurricane that could bring up to 20 inches of rain to parts of the Gulf Coast. As of 1 p.m. Monday, Nicholas was about 70 miles away from Port Aransas, Texas and was moving toward the north near 12 mph. The center of ...
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC/AP) - As Tropical Storm Nicholas edges toward Texas, the National Hurricane Center is watching two systems in the Atlantic, one of which could eventually develop off the coast of the Carolinas.
Tropical Storm Nicholas is gathering strength and threatening to blow ashore in Texas as a hurricane that could bring up to 20 inches of rain to parts of the Gulf Coast.
As of 1 p.m. Monday, Nicholas was about 70 miles away from Port Aransas, Texas and was moving toward the north near 12 mph.
The center of Nicholas will continue to pass just offshore of the coast of south Texas Monday afternoon and move onshore along the coast of central Texas later Monday evening.
Data from an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft and NOAA Doppler weather radars indicate that maximum sustained winds remain near 60 mph with higher gusts. Strengthening is forecast Monday afternoon and evening, and Nicholas could be near hurricane strength when it reaches the northwest Gulf coast. Weakening is anticipated on Tuesday and Wednesday while Nicholas moves over land.
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles from the center. During the past few hours, NOAA buoy 42020 located southeast of Corpus Christi, Texas, reported a sustained wind of 49 mph and a gust to 56 mph.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 29.59 inches.
The storm is likely to strike the same area hit by Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and storm-battered Louisiana.
Nearly all of the state’s coastline was under a tropical storm warning that included potential flash floods and urban flooding. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says authorities placed rescue teams and resources in the Houston area and along the coast.
Live 5 Meteorologist Chris Holtzman said there is a medium chance of development for a system off the coast of the Bahamas over the next five days.
“We’ll have to monitor this over the next five days, but it looks like if it were to develop even into a depression, it would be far enough away from us where maybe the only impacts would be some rough seas and rip currents,” he said.
The National Hurricane Center expects the system to form into a tropical depression by the middle of the week while it moves north-northwestward across the western Atlantic.
A tropical wave located over the far eastern tropical Atlantic is producing an area of disorganized cloudiness and thunderstorms and it has a higher chance of developing over the next five days, Holtzman said.
It will likely be days before the system’s path would start to become clear. The system is currently moving across the eastern Atlantic at about 15 mph.
The peak of hurricane season passed by over the weekend. The next two names in the 2021 list are Odette and Peter.
Hurricane season runs through Nov. 30.
