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.
