  • Begin by using a mildly abrasive pad to remove as much of the gold as possible…
  • Once the gold is removed, you will be left with a scratched surface. To remove the scratches, use a felt cloth with Tripoli compound to buff the surface smooth.
  • If the original piece was shiny, follow the Tripoli compound with jeweler’s rouge, again rubbing it onto the surface with a soft cloth.
  • Wipe away any remaining polish with a soft cloth.
  • If desired or needed, finish the removal process by applying a good quality silver polish.
