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

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 Nexton, SC, like Colucci’s Jewelers.

A new 110,000-square-foot office and retail development on the upper Charleston peninsula has landed its first tenant.
Interior Elements, a contract furniture dealer, will open a 2,500-square-foot office and showroom in The Quin on Algonquin Road off Meeting Street Road. The design showroom is expected to open in the latter months of 2021.
The Quin, which includes a 300-space parking deck in a separate structure, is a five-story development by Charlotte-based real estate investment firm White Point. It includes 5,000 square feet of outdoor recreation space.
The Quin was originally called The Belvidere, but changed the name since it was tied to a former plantation site. Quin is taken from the street, Algonquin, where the building is located.
The Quin’s completion by Frampton Construction marks the end of the first phase of White Point’s development on Algonquin Road.
In 2020 White Point purchased the 5.6-acre lot across the street which houses a Pepsi distribution plant. The developer plans to build apartments, offices, and food and beverage venues with second level/rooftop patios.
Phase II will begin when Pepsi vacates the property at a future date. The company has selected a site in Palmetto Commerce Park in North Charleston for its new distribution facility, according to Pepsi spokeswoman Elisa Baker. The building has not been constructed.
Locals restaurant is working on a second Mount Pleasant venue that will not include sushi while a British-inspired restaurant plans to open in the same shopping center. King Street will welcome two new retailers on May 15.
224: Number of units planned in a new apartment development in Point Hope off Clements Ferry Road in Charleston.
99: Number of acres in the new Downtown Nexton development of retailers, restaurants, hotels, offices and apartments coming to a $300M-plus investment on the edge of Summerville.
49: Record number of homes and homesites sold during the year’s first three months in the 2,000-acre Kiawah River development on Johns Island where 1,000 new homes are planned.
+ Tiny homes: New rules for small houses may be put in place for an Upstate county.
+ Boom & Balance: Summerville sees need for affordable housing options but struggles to find a place for it as the Charleston region’s growth spills into the Dorchester County town.
+ New apartments: Berkeley County’s Cane Bay community opens new 300-unit, multifamily development.
Charleston-area home sales continue to soar even as inventory of available houses continues to dip further. The median price of a home in the four-county region climbed to nearly $344,000 in April.

Hurricane lane reversal exercise set for Thursday
Special to The T&D
COLUMBIA — The S.C. Department of Public Safety and S.C. Department of Transportation, in conjunction with a number of state and local agencies, will conduct a hurricane evacuation exercise on Thursday to test lane reversal plans for all three major coastal areas of the state. “This hurricane exercise is critically important to the coordination of assets and personnel and represents one of many ways that state agencies collaborate to prepare before a hurricane event,” S.C.

COLUMBIA — The S.C. Department of Public Safety and S.C. Department of Transportation, in conjunction with a number of state and local agencies, will conduct a hurricane evacuation exercise on Thursday to test lane reversal plans for all three major coastal areas of the state.
“This hurricane exercise is critically important to the coordination of assets and personnel and represents one of many ways that state agencies collaborate to prepare before a hurricane event,” S.C. Department of Public Safety Director Robert Woods IV said.
The exercise will simulate reversal operations on U.S. 278 and U.S. 21. The deployment of equipment and personnel will be made on these roads leading out of Hilton Head and Beaufort.
Law enforcement personnel and traffic control devices will be deployed on Interstate 26 from the intersection of the 197 mm (Nexton Parkway) and I-26 in Charleston to I-77 and I-26 in Columbia.
Traffic control equipment and personnel will be stationed on U.S. 501 beginning at S.C. 544 and ending at U.S. 378, as well as between S.C. 22 and the Marion By-Pass.
Aerial units from SLED, the Civil Air Patrol, the S.C. Department of Natural Resources and the S.C. Forestry Commission will be flying assigned aerial surveillance routes.
The exercise should not interfere with the flow of traffic. Intersections will not be blocked, and motorists will be allowed to move freely. However, the Highway Patrol cautions motorists to exercise caution and be aware that law enforcement officers and state personnel will be located on the shoulder of the highway and at exits.
Visit the SCDOT website to view evacuation routes and the updated lane reversal video for I-26 at www.scdot.org.

Kick off your weekend with a trip to the latest S.C. eateries to earn a national nod. Or better yet, if you’re downtown, visit both.
D'Allesandro's Pizza, which has three state locations, was named to The 50 Best Pizzas in the United States by U.K.-based online travel site Big 7 Travel. The restaurant offering authentic Italian pizza, calzones and subs was ranked No. 38.
“No local in Charleston can deny that this neighbourhood pizza joint is a go-to haunt for some of the best pizza in the city. Actually, some of the best pizza in the U.S.,” Big 7 Travel said in its list.
Hungry patrons can choose from a list of curated pizzas or create their own from more than 30 toppings.
“The end result here? A pizza that is absolutely bursting with flavour through every single mouthful,” Big 7 said.
D’Allesandro’s can be found at 229 St. Philip St. in Charleston, 414 Nexton Square Drive in Summerville, and 17 Mohawk Drive in Greenville.
Off Track Ice Cream, just a mile and a half away, earned a nod as having the best ice cream in South Carolina from Food & Wine.
Owners Marc and Alissa Zera opened the sweet shop in 2019 after making ice cream as a creative outlet, they said on their website.
The ice cream is made from scratch and in-house at 6 Beaufain St. Flavors include chocolate fudgy brownie, peppermint chip, Fluffernutter blondie, cold brew honeycomb and birthday cake donut. Some flavor options are vegan-friendly as well.
“Our mission is to bring you the most flavor-packed, creamy, decadent ice creams possible, because you deserve great ice cream,” the owners said on their website. “Our Production Kitchen, located in the back half of our shop, is viewable through large floor-to-ceiling windows, so you can stop in to see for yourself.”
The owners use natural and local ingredients, such as sea salt from Bulls Bay Saltworks in McClellanville, wildflower honey from Red Clay Hot Sauce in Charleston and pecans from Brickyard Point Farm Lady’s Island.
