Hi, If it is so bad that you can't remove it with tarnish remover, I don't believe there is another way besides taking it to a jeweler and having it melted down and recast.

what type of tarnish remover? Will it work on gem stone rings?
Expert:  Mary replied 10 years ago.
Hi, you use the tarnish remover on the gold and around the gem, then clean the stone with a brush and jewelry cleaner. You can use regular silver tarnish remover available at the grocery store. As I said before, I don't know how bad they are, but tarnish remover works to remove a lot of stuff without scratching. Try it on one and see what you think.
