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.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- Two new dining options are moving into the West Ashley area, including a brunch spot and a New York pizzeria.
‘Breakfast is a meal, brunch is a lifestyle.’
That is the motto for Ruby Sunshine, a New Orleans-based brunch eatery that opened the doors of its second Charleston-area location on Friday.
Ruby Slipper Restaurant Group has taken over a space in The Victory at 835 Savannah Highway in West Ashley, joining the other location at 171 E Bay Street in downtown Charleston.
The spot will offer a Big Easy-inspired take on traditional Southern brunch fare including eggs benedict, shrimp and grits, omelets, and award-winning cocktails.
“We love the city and we fell in love with it the first time we came to see it,” Founder Jennifer Weishaupt said. “There’s such a great connection between Charleston and New Orleans and it has so many similar, parallel vibes in terms of the people, the architecture, and the history so that part of it is really fun.”
Ruby Sunshine in Avondale will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on weekdays and 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends.
You might have seen this food truck roaming the streets from Moncks Corner to Mount Pleasant serving up New York-style slices, but now it’s putting down roots at a permanent location in West Ashley.
Pizza A Modo Mio is moving into the old Ladles location at 3125 Bees Ferry Road in January.
The spot will offer fifteen different styles of 18-inch pizza pies served by the slice, garlic knots, chicken rolls, subs, and other selections you would expect to find at a traditional Long Island pizzeria.
Owner Michael Pitera ships all the dough in from New York and each week makes the homemade sauce and fresh mozzarella that tops the pies.
“Being from West Ashley and having the store in West Ashley, I can really bring that New York flavor to Charleston,” Pitera said. “I wanted to bring that style to my own neighborhood.”
As a bonus, Pizza A Modo Mio will double as an Italian ice shop, offering 16 different flavors of the popular dessert.
A grand opening is planned for Jan. 10, 2023, according to Pitera. Hours will be Tuesday-Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday-Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCBD) – A West Ashley man is warning others about a scam after someone attempted to gain access to his bank account while pretending to protect the victim from a fraud attempt.
“I initially got a text message asking if I had made a change,” explained Jamey Mellis, CEO of Software Solutions and Designs.
Mellis said the message appeared to come from his bank, Wells Fargo, on Wednesday.
“I’m looking at the message and just 10, 12, 15 seconds later I get a phone call from someone who said they’re from Wells Fargo fraud alert,” he recalled.
The person on the other end asked if he was attempting to make multiple purchases.
“Wanted to know if I had made a charge at Walmart out of Atlanta- I told him no. He asked me if I was out of town, and I said no. He goes ‘OK how about a charge at a gas station in Atlanta?’ No.”
The man texted him a link to confirm he did not make the charges.
“So, when I clicked on it, up came the screen asking me to sign into Wells Fargo — and I looked at it and did not have the same address as the link did. Nor was it a Wells Fargo address,” he warned.
Mellis told the man he didn’t know if this was legit.
“He said well, look- look at the number I’m calling you from and I want you to pull out your card. Turn your card over and you’ll see it’s the same number that’s on the back of your card and sure enough it was the same telephone number,” Mellis explained.
Mellis just happened to be driving by his Wells Fargo branch in West Ashley. He went inside and talked to someone.
“She told me that they were getting inundated with these types of calls and that it was definitely fraud.”
Mellis owns Software Solutions and Designs, and he is a certified, trained computer security expert. He said caller ID info can be faked to look like a call came from a legitimate number.
“Usually when I get a call and somebody tells me they’re from wherever I usually will hang up and call him to confirm,” he said.
He went the minute that I login, they capture my username and password and then they could’ve gone straight into Wells Fargo log into my account and got access to every account I have and drained everything that I have. I think if the average person, if they would have looked at that they would’ve fallen for that.”

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Some residents of the Avondale Community are worried about how proposed safety improvements in West Ashley will cause problems for their neighborhood.
Officials with both the city of Charleston and Charleston County said the improvements will make the intersection safer, but some Avondale residents worry it will negatively impact their neighborhood.
A petition called “Stop the Avondale Avenue at Savannah Highway Realignment Project” currently has over 300 signatures and counting.
READ MORE: Petition: “Stop the Avondale Avenue at Savannah Highway Realignment Project”
The writers of the petition claim realigning Avondale Avenue and Nicholson Street on Savannah Highway will bring “profound” and “permanent” effects on the livability, culture and safety of the Avondale Neighborhood.
For some background, the Avondale Realignment is just one part of the Savannah Highway Capacity and Intersection Improvement Project, which aims to improve traffic flow and safety at several West Ashley intersections. The project’s website states the plan for the Avondale portion of the project includes realigning Avondale Avenue with Nicholson Street, which would require the demolition of the building that currently hosts DBs and Alpha Graphics.
The City of Charleston said it is currently working with property owners to secure right-of-way acquisition for the realignment,’ which essentially means the city is working to secure the property owner’s consent.
Avondale Resident Katherine Anderson said she thinks realigning Avondale Avenue with Nicholson Street will push more cars through area neighborhoods, increasing traffic. She said she is also concerned that the realignment would enable a new parking garage to be built where the DBs and Alpha Graphics building currently sits.
“I think that this project is really to get the commuters into town and out of town, and the residents that live here are not necessarily being thought of, in my opinion,” Anderson said.
The City of Charleston said a private property owner has expressed interest in building a garage once the intersection improvement is done, but that it is not a part of the county or city’s plan.
“The city appreciates the county’s efforts to make this part of Avondale safer, particularly in light of last week’s tragic collision, and is working with area property owners to help secure the needed right-of-ways,” The City of Charleston said in a statement.

CCSD to further superintendent search, initial timeline for final candidates in doubt
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — The Charleston County School District will continue its sea...
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — The Charleston County School District will continue its search for a new superintendent on Tuesday as an ad-hoc committee plans to narrow down the list of search firms for the position.
It’s been over a year since the search for a new superintendent began in CCSD.
The previous Board of Trustees paused the search to wait until after elections, and now the new board seems to be ready to move forward, but not at the pace many initially anticipated.

Ad-hoc committee members tell ABC News 4 that the list of search firms will be narrowed down from five, which is the list the previous board had left, to three at Tuesday's meeting.
That list will then go to the Board of Trustees to make the final decision on who to hire.
Board members tell ABC News 4 that the expectation is for a narrowed-down list to be reviewed by the March 13 CCSD Board of Trustees meeting. They'll use the selected search firm to start narrowing down superintendent candidates.
However, the initial timeline announced by the district in August was to have all finalists interviewed and a new superintendent announced by March 31.
While it doesn't look like that will happen, board members tell me that they're certain to get down to business in the coming weeks despite a lot of the moving parts.
“Although the parts are moving, it's constantly trying to keep up with what's actually happening, and what each member is considering and thinking and making sure that those are cohesive. Because ultimately, the board operates as nine or as a body politic, not as an individual," said Ed Kelley, District 2 representative. "So that's the piece, that it is so difficult to make sure that everyone's on the same page, or at least everyone is aware of what's coming down the pipe, so everyone can be prepared to engage meaningfully in the conversation.”
The full school board has been together for less than three weeks since the special election for the District 6 seat was held earlier this month. That's why the district is also getting help from the South Carolina School Board Association in the search process.
But throughout this all, there have been a lot of questions surrounding current superintendent Don Kennedy’s involvement in the district's future.
Kennedy took over as interim superintendent in January of 2022 after longtime superintendent Geritta Postlewait resigned after six years. District officials still have not confirmed why she left.
In July of 2022, Kennedy was promoted to full-time superintendent. Despite the title change, it was made clear he would hold this position only until a new superintendent was hired.
But it hasn't been ruled out if he will be a candidate in this search.
Based on the way he has handled the job so far, some board members say they hope he is.
“If you put yourself in his position, basically, you get a new boss randomly, and you don't know who it's going to be, because functionally, that's what the board is, as a group is to supervise [the] boss," Kelley said. "So on November the 9th, you get a new boss, and then that boss immediately goes, ‘Well, we are going to start searching for your replacement.’ How can anyone really [handle it] like he had? Mr. Kennedy has handled this with absolute dignity."
If Kennedy is replaced, it would be the fourth superintendent for Charleston County schools in nine years. ABC News 4 checked with the district, and the current total compensation package for the superintendent position is just over $246,000.
