Do you have a drill press? You could probably do it yourself. Here's how Larry Potterfield does it.

Great video Jeff L.
I have had pretty good success with a pencil eraser,600grit lapping compound and a drill press as well.Mark lines first to follow a straight line.
Sorry to the op,I do not personally know of a person to do it for you.

^ That's a LITTLE bit more than just using a drill press.

I've learned over the years that without the right tools you end up with a half a** job. I love doing my own work and since I don't have a press with a way to index, I'm not going to hack it. I'm okay with paying to have this done correctly and looking beautiful with very clean lines.

What's the purpose of jeweling? I've always thought it's kind of ugly.

A jeweled bolt reflects less light than a polished one. I like a blued bolt on my rifles.

If you don't like Jewelling, how about Fluting the bolt?

/Jewelling is for looks, anyone claiming a performance benefit is uninformed.

It also helps to retain oil on the surface of the bolt.
