If you do want to do it, I would shop for a quality jeweler. Most "jewelers" these days do little more than resize and replace stones...the craftsmanship is rapidly becoming a lost art, much like silversmithing.

It CAN be done, absolutely, but finding a plater or jeweler willing and able to do it, is another matter, There are 3-4 ways to accomplish the job.
Large urban areas are more likely to have such craftsmen than rural places., and it will take some searching. Whenever I have needed such services (e.g. fine engraving, delicate repairs etc.) over the decades, I always look for old timey Europeans and long-established jewelry stores.
Would it be possible to see a photo of the piece(s) as they are now?

Here is a photo of one of the emblems that I have where you can see that the gold plating is missing from the continents and the anchor. It looks like someone polished it off. Anyhow, I think I will just leave it as is. Thanks for the advice though!

Yes... I'd leave it too.
It doesn't look bad at all.
