I have, it looked good as new!  I don’t know HOW they did it, but it wasn’t a problem!  Here’s a pic of the ring (after it has been worn a LOT) so you can get an idea of what it entailed.  The edges are white, the middle and inside are yellow.

I’ve heard of nail polish as well as yellow water color paint  ( there’s something about the yellow pigment ) it has a special name but I forget… It helps make sure only certain parts get plated … Also when  soldering especially on intricate things some Jewelers use white out  because it keeps the part that you don’t want to come undone dirty because solder only works When all surfaces are clean so nail polish will work the same way to make sure certain parts stay “dirty” and don’t get plated …. It all just tips an tricks of the trade
