How can I fix my awesome earrings
after the metallic plating has chipped off

I got these earrings in a bag of jewelry at a resale shop, and I love them. Unfortunately, jostling around against other jewelry has chipped the gold-colored finish pretty badly. I remember when I was a kid there were ads in the back of magazines for this stuff you could dip jewelry in to gold-plate it, but that never seemed quite right to me (they showed a dull gray link interlocked with a gold link coming out of the liquid...cheaters). I like the gold finish they have now, but I'm open to other suggestions, as long as I don't end up with the ugly gray metal showing.
