I cleaned my two-tone 14ct gold engagement ring with a gold/diamond cleaner containing ammonia. I accidentally left it in the solution for too long and now the white gold has a yellow tinge in some places. How can this be fixed? Is it harder to re-treat the white gold band since there is yellow gold on the shoulders of the diamond?
