Has Anyone Ever Changed a Bag's Hardware Color?

  1. I want a white bag with gold hardware and cannot find a combination I like anywhere. Has anyone ever had silver hardware changed to gold? I had a yellow gold ring rhodium plated to make it white gold once, but I thought a handbag would be trickier because of the leather.

    If you have had this done, what is your experience? I would also like to know if someone could recommend a handbag/shoe repair in the Los Angeles area where I could go for such an alteration. I called Arturo's Shoe Fixx in Beverly Hills and was told that it can be done, but I want some feedback from someone who has done it and lived with the result.
