A competent jeweler can do this. They coat the parts they don’t want plated before dipping. Go to a respected local jeweler who has a bench person on site – not one who sends their work to a third party.

 eta: My jeweler just made a ring for me and had to plate the basket only. He told me they paint the parts they don’t want plated with nailpolish! WUT?!!  Google confirmed this is true.

I had the Vera Wang white and rose gold emerald cut ring set and I had it redipped three times and they never ruined the rose gold 🙂

Kglenn1 :  No, they remove it. (I wondered that too, and I agree it sounds crazy!)

ETA: Your ring is very detailed, and the white and rose gold are mixed closely, so your ring might take longer than usual.

Kglenn1 :  I have a white gold with rose gold bridge under my halo

I had it re-dipped in June. No issues. 

Your jeweller gets these mixed-metal rings all the time. It’s not a problem for them.

Holy smokes that’s a ring! Nothing but love intended sis, but I have to know the story behind this ring. It’s got so many delicate little details. Please tell me where it came from and how you got it. (I love how each piece of jewelry tells a story and has its own history.)🥰

Kglenn1 :  you do not have to get white gold rhodium dipped, people just often choose to if this piece was originally rhorium plated because rhodium is whiter than white gold, but not all white gold is rhodium plated. Are you sure your even is?
