I had some napkins in an blah french blue
I thought Id bleach them to get some interesting effects before I embroider them
Did I mention I've been married for almost 2 years now; my husband and I used our plain white gold bands as promise rings for the 4 years before we got married during our LDR; they are engraved with "to thee I will be wed"  ....
NEVER  wear gold when playing with bleach
my ring is a murky brass colour now  Cry   
I'm going try to slip my ring  into the jeweler in the morning  Cry if he cant fix it my husband is going to be so upset with me

You may be in luck. White gold is usually mixed with other metals so that may have saved your ring since bleach + 24K gold = dissolved goop. Hopefully a professional cleaning will help remove the gunky layer.

Overwhelming guilt lead me to show my husband..who laughed at my stress and popped down to the jeweler who fixed everything!
On the upside the napkins all came out in shades of a warm pinkish buff  not what I was expecting but a happy outcome in the light of my plans to make some wall hangings from some 1970s kids decor patterns !
so all is well !
