Diamond Engagement Rings in North Charleston
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

A joint venture of CP Capital, a highly disciplined U.S. real estate manager specializing in multifamily investments, and Greystar, a leading, fully integrated real estate company with expertise in investment management, development, and property management, today announced they will be developing ‘Montague Corners’ – a 336-unit multifamily development project in North Charleston, South Carolina.
Montague Corners will be situated immediately off I-526, just southwest of the soon to be expanded I-26/I-526 interchange – providing seamless commuter access to all areas of the Charleston metropolitan area. The community will be strategically located at the epicenter of the rapidly growing market, just two miles from Charleston International Airport, one mile from the North Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center, and three miles from Joint Base Charleston.
The project is expected to break ground in October 2022. The first units are anticipated to deliver in Q1 2024, with construction expected to be completed during the summer of 2024.
“Charleston has displayed incredible economic resilience since the start of the pandemic, benefiting from consistent in-migration resulting in impressive job and population growth,” said Paul Doocy, Co-Head of CP Capital. “We are proud to continue our partnership with Greystar to deliver Montague Corners and consistently generate value for both our partners and the communities where we invest.”
Montague Corners will feature an expansive pool with outdoor entertainment, co-working spaces, a fully equipped fitness center, and charming lounge areas as well as upscale interior finishes such as stainless-steel appliances, stone-surface countertops, and vinyl wood flooring.
The three-story, surface-parked community will also benefit from its proximity to the Tanger Outlets, an open-air shopping destination, and the Park Circle area, a burgeoning hub of eclectic retail and dining options. Immediately south of Park Circle, Jamestown plans to redevelop a 45-acre site into a mixed-use project consisting of 1.2 million square feet of office space, residences, shopping, dining, and a concert hall.
“We are thrilled to continue developing multifamily spaces in the high-performing Charleston market, and could not ask for a better partner in CP Capital,” said Ben Liebetrau, Greystar Managing Director, Carolinas. “Montague Corners’ combination of a convenient, central location and best-in-class amenities will provide renters with the perfect environment for their modern lifestyle, and allow the Greater Charleston area to continue its already impressive growth.”
CP Capital, formerly known as HQ Capital Real Estate, has partnered with Greystar on five development projects in the past, most recently the Brighton Park Apartments in Brighton, Colorado.
‘I was awestruck’: Parents of North Charleston man lose home in Hurricane Ian

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A North Charleston man drove down to southwest Florida to help with cleanup efforts after Hurricane Ian made his parent’s mobile home unlivable.
“You could see it on television, but until you’re there seeing it in person, it’s… I was awestruck,” Edward Boggio said.
Boggio lives in North Charleston, but his parents, who are in their 70s, live in North Fort Myers, Florida. When Hurricane Ian was heading straight towards southwest Florida, he had some concerns about their wellbeing. His mother is on oxygen so he was worried if the power went out, she may not be able to get oxygen supplied for an extended period of time.
When Ian first started slamming the Florida coast, Boggio’s parents, Lucy and Larry, stayed in their mobile home, until they heard the windows crashing around them.
Boggio was able to get in contact with his parents by phone. He told them to go to a shelter. They went right away but had to drive through flooding and debris on the road. Two of the tires on their car went flat on the way there.
When the storm passed and they were able to get back to their home, they found their belongings strewn around their yard. A neighbor’s carport struck the roof of the mobile home, tearing some of it away.
“It was almost heartbreaking because they worked all these years and retired in Florida,” Boggio said.
The home is unlivable at this time. Boggio’s parents are staying at a hotel for four weeks. But after that, they will have to find somewhere else. They did not have insurance. Boggio started a GoFundMe to help with costs.
Boggio drove down to Florida from North Charleston to assist with the cleanup efforts.
“As I was cleaning up, and just looking at broken photos, family photos, picture frames, and that really hit me emotionally,” Boggio said.
What Boggio is bringing back to the Charleston area is a sense of appreciation for the goodness of humanity during tragedy.
“One thing that really moved me was seeing all the volunteers. All the volunteers not look to their own interests but to the interests of others,” Boggio said.
Boggio said his parents will stay in southwest Florida. He hopes that people will now start to take weather more seriously. When tragedy strikes, he said he hopes you can do what you can to help.

A restaurant and bar that pays homage to the year North Charleston was founded and the Lowcountry’s aviation industry plans to open soon near Tanger Outlets.
Jason and Teresa Harter of Ohio plan to launch Hangar 72 Sports Tavern at 4951 Centre Pointe Drive tentatively in November, according to Emily Benedict of the commercial real estate firm We Sell Restaurants.
The name is meant to reflect that Charleston International Airport and Boeing Co.’s aircraft assembly plant are nearby. The 72 figure gives a nod to North Charleston when it became a city 50 years ago, in 1972.
The free-standing building has two bars and two separate dining areas “that they’re opening as a sports tavern with airport hangar vibe,” Benedict said.
The Harters have operated a similar sports bar near Columbus, Ohio, for more than five years. The North Charleston site will be their second operation.
The 6,000-square-foot space was formerly occupied by Fiery Crab Seafood, which faltered after opening at the start of the pandemic in 2020. Before that, it was Fatz Café, which closed in 2019.
The owner of a downtown Charleston building that suffered a fire in 2013 wants to add a rooftop terrace to the redeveloped property.
Yashik Development will ask the city’s Board of Zoning Appeals Oct. 18 for a special exception to allow a late-night use for a bar and restaurant that is within 500 feet of the French Quarter residential district.

A downtown Charleston jewelry shop is adding a new permanent collection by a New York City designer.
Croghan’s Jewel Box at 308 King St. will unveil Marla Aaron’s designs in a showcase called “The Marla Bar” on Oct. 14.
Aaron will be on hand 10 a.m.-5 p.m. to meet with customers and talk about the custom jewelry display, an exclusive to Croghan’s that will be filled with the designer’s signature locks and chains.
The Big Apple resident launched her first collection in 2012 when her combined obsessions with bridges, hardware and jewelry could no longer be ignored.
All of the pieces in the collection are made and finished by hand in New York City and sold all over the world. Although recognized for its streamlined, industrial look, the collection is rooted in the personal and emotional jewelry of the Victorian and Georgian eras and has expanded to incorporate many other elements.
The company’s approach to jewelry led to the December 2017 installation of Aaron’s first vending machine at the Brooklyn Museum. She and her company are in the process of building more machines.
Her entire collection was exhibited in 2016 in New York City at the Museum of American Finance in an exhibit entitled “Gold: Worth its Weight.”
Aaron releases new designs regularly on Instagram first. She also created the #lockyourmom project, which has given single moms across the country thousands of sterling silver baby heartlocks.
A auto body repair shop wants to expand its footprint in West Ashley.
Caliber Collision plans to add a 1,950-square-foot building at 1077 Jenkins Road on the backside of its business at 1893 Sam Rittenberg Blvd., according to site plans.
