    I have seen people paint their gold trim with High Heat Rustoleum spray paint and they look great.

    You can paint it! Just make sure you use a high heat paint. :)

    Are you talking around the firebox?

    If so, removing it may reveal poor craftsmanship or may create damage in the removal.

    Yes, clean it, mask it and spray it with one of many choices of high-temp paint. Check engine paints at auto parts stores- for more color choices, like silver.

    You can purchase high-heat paint in spray or brush on (if the trim is embeded in the brick). If it's embedded in the brick surround and you want to completely remove it then you might try a sawsall or similar, but be careful because you could damage the integrity of the fireplace with the vibration of the tool which might be costly to correct.
