    how bad is it? are you talking about cleaning it, or re plating it? or you could just take it to a repair tech in your area...

      It has a tarnished apearance to it. Would cleaner work or does it have to be replated?

        get some good silver polish and a soft rag... (and some soft shoelaces to get in the little places) that should do the trick... DON'T get on a dremel and start buffing!

          oops, well I think that would work for gold too.
