I live in the Annapolis area, and used James Jolliff - he is an independent appraiser who works out of his home, and executive director of NAJA. If you look up JEI Enterprises you will find his number. He is literally right off of Route 97 south on route 2... he is retired Navy, very gruff old guy, but very honest. I will send you a private message with his number if you like.

Yeah, can you send me his info and what he charges? Is he off Int 97 or Rte 97 (Georgia Ave.)?

I already emailed to you. Let me know that you got it. I mean the 97 that goes south out of Baltimore direct to Annapolis. I can email you further directions as well, or he can provide when you call him.

Well, he is intimately familiar with the AGA cut chart and will give you all of the required measurements and tell you the class of the stone. He is friends with Mr. Atlas (oldminer) who developed that chart. Mr. Atlas had recommended him to me. (I would have used Dave Atlas, except I wanted to see the stone and he is way up in Philly).

Good Luck!

I'm not familar with the appraisal process so this might be a stupid question. Does he do the appraisal with you sitting there? If not how fast is the turnaround?

Well, he did mine in an evening - I left it there and went back the next morning to pick it up (but I live ten minutes from him). You can ask him if it is okay to stick around while he does his work - never hurts to ask.
