Diamond Engagement Rings in Mount Pleasant
Proposing to the love of your life is one of the most beautiful, memorable moments that two people will ever share as a couple. An engagement ring symbolizes love and acceptance; it epitomizes trust and commitment. While no two proposals will ever be exactly the same, there is one constant that will always remain true: the diamond engagement ring you choose from Colucci's Jewelers will give you a lifetime of pleasure and contentment.

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

New store will be third location in the state to serve REI members and outdoor enthusiasts
SEATTLE, June 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Specialty outdoor retailer REI Co-op will open a new store in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina in fall 2022. The location will offer a wide assortment of apparel, gear and expertise for camping, cycling, running, fitness, hiking, paddling, climbing and more. For those who adventure on two wheels, a full-service bike shop will be staffed by certified mechanics.
"We look forward to opening a third store in South Carolina and being a resource to REI members and the broader outdoor community in and around Mount Pleasant," said Jacki Harp, REI regional director. "Our local team will also seek partnerships with outdoor nonprofits to support their efforts in protecting natural places and welcoming more people outside."
As the country's largest consumer co-op, anyone is welcome to shop and tap into the company's resources in support of an active lifestyle. Members who join the co-op enjoy a range of benefits, including a used gear trade-in program; discounts on experiences, rentals and shop services; a share of the co-op's annual profits based on qualifying purchases; and more.
REI actively partners with nonprofits across the nation to steward and maintain local trails and public lands to connect more people to the outdoors. Last year, the co-op invested $7.1 million in more than 450+ nonprofits across the country. Over the last five years, the co-op has invested nearly $184,000 in South Carolina-based land agencies and nonprofit partners. Recent recipients include Anne Springs Close Greenway, Conestee Foundation Inc., Friends of Harbison State Forest, Friends of Paris Mountain, Friends of Sesqui, and Palmetto Conservation Foundation.
The co-op launched the REI Cooperative Action Fund last year, a community-supported public charity designed to harness the collective power of the co-op's members and employees to build a more just, equitable and inclusive outdoor culture. Black Girls RUN! Foundation chapters in Charleston, Columbia, Florence/Myrtle Beach and Greenville/Spartanburg received grants in the first round of funding.

REI expects to hire approximately 50 employees for REI Mount Pleasant. Candidates interested in joining the REI team can apply online at REI.com/jobs and a timeline for hiring is here. Candidates can set up a job alert on the co-op's career site to be notified when positions are posted. New employees will receive a wide variety of benefits, including generous product and service discounts, competitive pay and retirement contributions. REI employees also enjoy unique perks, such as two paid "Co-op Way Days" each year that allow them to enjoy their favorite outdoor activity and an additional paid day off on Black Friday to encourage all employees to #OptOutside.

3 new restaurants on the way to Charleston area in Mount Pleasant, Cainhoy and Goose Creek
A Mount Pleasant retail center where a new outdoor gear store plans to open will soon see a new restaurant, and two other new dining spots are in the works across the Charleston region as well.Pasture & Grain plans to open in July at 1701 Shoremeade Road in the Indigo Square Shopping Center on U.S. Highway 17 where national sporting goods retailer REI announced June 6 it plans to open in the fall in the former GreenWise Market grocery store space.The new restaurant is takin...
A Mount Pleasant retail center where a new outdoor gear store plans to open will soon see a new restaurant, and two other new dining spots are in the works across the Charleston region as well.
Pasture & Grain plans to open in July at 1701 Shoremeade Road in the Indigo Square Shopping Center on U.S. Highway 17 where national sporting goods retailer REI announced June 6 it plans to open in the fall in the former GreenWise Market grocery store space.
The new restaurant is taking over the space vacated in May by Blaze Pizza, which closed after three years. A sign on the door says Blaze is relocating, but the new site is not mentioned. A company representative did not respond for comment on the new location or opening date.
Pasture & Grain owner and chef Ira Hill says the 2,800-square-foot venue will serve American fare priced from $8 to $18. Meats, vegetables, grains, hot and cold sandwiches, salads and toast with spreads are on the menu. Sous chef will be Brandon Brown.
The shopping center also saw the recent departure of gastro pub Bull & Finch, which closed in May after nine months.
Two other restaurants also are on the way to the Charleston area.
In Cainhoy, a new venue by Florie’s Dining Group is planned for 1937 Clements Ferry Road, Unit B, beside Dog & Duck restaurant and bar.
“My concept has changed since I purchased the place in January,” said Brannon Florie. “Honestly, I’m still between two concepts. The space is small, so I am trying to make the best use of the space and still capitalize on what we are missing out here. I’ve lived on Clements Ferry for about eight years now.”
He’s leaning toward calling it Po Boy — Southern Refuge and Bar.
Florie doesn’t have an opening date, but he is eyeing the end of summer for a launch.
Florie’s Dining Group includes Pier 41 and The Basement in northern Mount Pleasant and Florie’s at Commonhouse Aleworks in North Charleston.
Florie said he’s considering a couple of other concepts for the northern side of the Charleston area but has nothing to announce.
Also, on the way is a new restaurant in a former Pizza Hut in Goose Creek.
Pho Bowl LLC recently applied for a beer and wine license at 142 St. James Ave., Suite D, beside Food Lion supermarket. An opening date has not been announced.
South Carolina drivers can count on doling out even more more for the already exhorbitant cost of gasoline, starting in July.
The state’s gas tax will rise by 2 cents a gallon next month, the last of six annual increases passed by the General Assembly in 2017 to help pay for road, bridge and infrastructure construction.
The two-cent tack-on will boost the state’s gas tax to 28 cents per gallon.
Drivers in the Palmetto State are paying an average of $4.54 a gallon as of July 8, according to online fuel information provider GasBuddy. That’s up $1.76 from last year at this time. The national average is $4.97 per gallon, up $1.90 from one year ago.
The higher price of fuel is partially the result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Prices were already rising before the war.
Toast! All Day is now open with a second location in downtown Charleston.
Charleston Hospitality Group recently opened the sixth Toast location in the Lowcountry at 453 King St. in the former Monza pizzeria site, which closed in February after a 13-year run.
“After more than 17 successful years serving customers in Charleston with our first Toast! concept, expanding this brand in a city that I love is incredibly exciting,” said Sam Mustafa, CEO of Charleston Hospitality Group. “We hope our friends and neighbors will come in and celebrate the moments in life that deserve to be toasted.”
Along with Southern comfort food offerings, the new restaurant has incorporated the original wood-fired ovens to offer pizza as well. The menu also features seafood baskets, salads and sandwiches, as well as drink specials and artisan coffee selections.
The other downtown Toast is at 155 Meeting St. Two others are in Mount Pleasant, with one each in Summerville and West Ashley.
The restaurant group also includes Eli’s Table, Queology, John King Bar & Grill, all in Charleston, and Honky Tonk Saloon in Ladson.
Skatell’s Manufacturing Jewelers of West Ashley has moved to a new location.
The jewelry store is now at 821 Orleans Road after moving from 1798 Ashley River Road, according to owners Nan Butler and husband Jason, who also own the store in Mount Pleasant.
Ye Ole Fashioned Cafe & Ice Cream Parlor will host the grand opening of its new location in West Ashley on June 10 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and an ice cream special all day.
Officials will snip the ribbon at 11 a.m., and small cups of ice cream in 32 flavors will be offered all day for 99 cents at the new restaurant at 1319 Sam Rittenberg Blvd. in Ashley Landing Shopping Center.
Lawsuits: Mold, ventilation problems and structural issues at new townhomes in Mount Pleasant

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - What should have been a new chapter in their lives has turned into a nightmare for some Mount Pleasant homeowners. Mold, ventilation problems and structural issues are just some of the complaints listed in lawsuits filed against the builder and HVAC contractor.
The Midtown Townhomes by Lennar are one of the newer builds in Mount Pleasant. It’s located off of Hungry Neck Boulevard and they’re listed as luxury townhomes. From the outside, many would think it’s true but neighbors say things have gone wrong.
“I started looking around, I mean opening closets, and I was just like ‘Oh my God,’” Kim Conway, who bought her townhome in 2020, says.
Conway says she was gone last summer for about six weeks. But when she came back, there was mold on every floor.
“My furniture, my bed, my mattress… everything was damp when I came home,” Conway says. “Like my sheets were wet. Everything was wet. And I lived in here for four days like this. And my furniture, these chairs… they had to come in and clean every piece of furniture. Everything. There was nothing left in this house.”
Conway says she had to move into a hotel while Lennar cleaned it up. According to documents from her attorney, it cost about $14,000.
She’s not the only one dealing with issues.
“I need to have the air conditioner work properly so that there’s not too much humidity in the house and it won’t blow constantly,” Karen Tinsley, who bought her townhome in 2021, says. “I think the unit is not the correct type of unit. I have a sink in the kitchen that’s cracked from the factory. I have a water heater that I’ve replaced because the plumber said that it was too small for my unit.”
Tinsley says she’s had problems since day one.
“My oven didn’t work properly. I have a gas stove and it was flickering so they had to go in the attic and make a bigger line for that. And I’ve had cracking of brick on the outside. There’s all kinds of wall problems upstairs. I have a bowed out floorboard and someone came in and said, ‘well we’re going to have to take out the wall because the plate and the wall isn’t attached to the sheetrock.’ So that means they’re going to have to come in and tear out the wall and fix that.
Tinsley says of the laundry list of items she has sent to Lennar to fix only about 25 percent has been done. And she’s wary if they’re actually done correctly. She says the most concerning thing to her, though, is the cracking bricks.
“I have these dreams where that my entire house is falling down from the outside and everything inside is all going to just fall down,” Tinsley says. “It’s like how scary is that? That’s what I’m stressed out about.”
All in all – neighbors just want their new homes fixed and for Lennar and the other companies to own up to the problems. That’s why they filed the lawsuits.
As of Thursday, the lawsuit against the HVAC company, Fogel Services, is pending in Charleston County. A federal court dismissed the lawsuit against Lennar for procedural reasons, but a motion for reconsideration of that dismissal is currently pending. Neither company has responded for a request for comment as of Thursday.
“I think Lennar should accept what they’ve done and they know they’ve messed up these buildings,” Conway adds. “They should fix them. They should be responsible and just fix them. And learn how to build.”
They’re also offering some advice to home buyers.
“I would say don’t rush into buying anything get an inspector,” Tinsley says. “Maybe get two inspectors. Get some advice from other people to go in and look at the history of the place. Don’t rush into a brand new construction because they’re taking shortcuts these days to sell.”
This isn’t the first lawsuit against Lennar. There are more than a dozen listed in Charleston County alone listed on the court’s website dating back more than a decade alleging similar problems.
