drilling a hole in a porcelain sign? #779626 07/28/2022 8:21 PM

Hello, I have half of an old White Rose sign that was lit with neon, meaning it was 2 sided in a steel frame. Unfortunately I only have one side and no frame.
I took the sign to a neon person I know, and she has some ideas on how to light the one side, but they involve drilling a 1/2 to 5/8 hole in the face of the sign. Has anyone tried this with any success?
I was thinking of a step drill bit, she suggested a diamond bit for drilling thru tile, I don't know how that would do going thru the steel.
Please don't tell me I'll destroy the value, the sign is not perfect by any means, and it is an old family piece that I would never sell
Thanks Greg

We chose this look, without the perimeter green since the bottom is bent.

Picked up my sign and it looks great.
My neon friend is a real artist!
