How do you guys keep silver cufflinks from tarnishing when not in use?

I asked my wife, a jeweler who works mostly in sterling silver, and she said, "it's the nature of sterling silver to tarnish. Tarnish-resistant jewelry bags exist and may help. Wipe them every now and then with a polishing cloth and they'll be fine."

Put a piece of rock camphor in the box where you store the links to prevent them from tarnishing.

Yes, I only wear a french cuff shirt from time to time and every silver cufflink I have ever had ends up a tarnished ugly mess next time I fish them out of the drawer. Makes me inclined to stay away from silver and go with some other metal.

You know, i like the rhodium plate they put on cufflinks sometimes. Gives them a brighter finish and resistance to tarnish.

Tarnish bags work well.
