    Remove with glass bead.

    Anodizing - aluminum oxide - removal is tedious work with
    wet sandpaper, which is aluminum oxide.

    Make bare aluminum shiny by polishing - rouge on a cotton
    wheel, changing direction often.

    A number of acids will etch it off, and a quick pass through a
    beadblaster will remove it as well. I am not aware of a convenient
    way to remove it which does not change the quality of the surface
    finish, however.

    You would be better off just selling the chainring and then buying a silver
    one. Much simpler. No mess. Better results.
