Restoring Black Highlights on Engraved Gold Signet Ring

Forum: Jewelry Making Materials

I have a signet style class ring in white gold. As the picture below illustrates, the black is gone from much of the engraving. Is Gilders Paste the proper thing to use to restore the black or is there something better?

Since the ring has some scratches I would use a brush to apply an enamel paint into the figure and then seal it with a couple of thin coats of clear spray such as Krylon outdoor furniture spray. This will seal the rest of the lettering as well for protection.
