Both relacquering and replating in gold are problematic these days. Relacquering usually lowers market value. Re-golding is seriously expensive and the gold is occasionally prone to peel.

Tarnish polishes away. I don't think replated VIs suffer the value drop that relacquered ones do (tho there was some question whether original lacquer might be worth more than original silver due to some superstition or other!)
