Sterling Necklace

I need help with tarnish removers, input please?!?

My Sterling necklace is tarnished. I wear it almost everyday, i even sleep in it. I wear it a lot because i know that my skin oils will keep the silver from tarnishing. When it did become tarnished, i cleaned it with Tarn-X, even though i know it doesn't really remove tarnish, it just bleaches it. Same for baking soda, either as a paste (which dull-ens silver by scratching it), or with hot water, it only bleaches tarnish. I find that when i use Tarn-X for a quick fix, the tarnish is back within a week. Is this due to the fact that Tarn-X only bleaches silver, so it's effects are only short-term? I have heard about Wright's Silver Cream, does this actually remove tarnish? And in addition to using Wrights Silver Cream, do jewelers rouge cloths prevent tarnish? I heard that the rouge gets all over your hands, and that it's kind of messy, but does the rouge bleach tarnish, or actually remove it? And between the two, which one is best? Please help, and thanks in advance for all your input!

I believe that it is true that silver react differently depending on your skin oils.

My mother and I bought identiacal silver chains .. mine is constantly tarnished, hers is not.

I can't speak for Wrights but Hagarty makes a really good silver polish that you might want to try.

Alternativly, unless this necklace specifically is special to you, you might consider replacing it with a neckace that is make of tarnish resistant silver:

Tarnish Resistant Argentium Sterling Silver

Argentium Sterling Silver is the trade name for this tarnish-free silver which was developed by Peter Johns when he was at Middlesex University in the UK. In addition to being resistant to tarnish, it is not susceptible to “firescale” (firescale is a reddish patina that appears on silver alloys when heated in the presence of oxygen) , is more ductile and electrically conductive, and can be heat hardened to be twice as hard as normal silver.

I’ve heard the price for Argentium Sterling silver is necessarily more than normal Sterling because of the processing that needs to be done to achieve its properties. But have non-tarnishing wire to work with would be a huge advantage. I often find myself making pieces that involve silver to sell in the future and then having the metal parts become oxidized even with careful storage. And customers who aren’t used to having. This is definitely worth a second look. In the Ganoksin article I read it said the exclusive North American distributor of Argentium Sterling Silver was called “Stern-Leach Co”.
