I have an old gents two tone ring. The top plate isa die-struck
white gold plate with 5 diamonds (round) in it. It was one of those
pre-cleaned out plates that can fit various size diamonds; one
drills a seat and uses a heavy flat or round graver and sets the
stones. Anyway, the plate is very tarnished, and I need to polish it
bright and possibly rhodium the top again. The problem is that the
diamonds are in the way, and if I attempt to take them out, I will
amost surely break one or more beads off. I tried cyanide, to no
avail. Should I try to bomb? Electro strip?
