I've collected a "used" set of toasting flutes on a trip to goodwill. They look very nice in person. Their only flaw is: a little tarnish/discoloration between the two materials they are made of. Tonight I have discovered they are crystal on silver by googling the designer (listed on bottom) in a research attempt on figuring out the cause of the discoloration. The discoloration is only about 1/8" thick (at most, see picture, sorry it's fuzzy + reflecting the wood table with dim lighting) at the inside top rim of the silver base.
Does anyone have ideas on how I could remove/hide that smidgen of tarnish between the crystal and silver without harming the flutes?
There are some DIY soaks with aluminum foil + chemistry but, setting that up will be tricky. The location of the tarnish, plus the flat bottom of the silver base has felt (I'd like to not destroy).
Other notes: Our table decorations will have a vintage/steampunk look. We have not started putting together/making table decorations yet. I'm not sure if they'd look too out of place modern/shiny/whatnot, until those projects are more "done", tarnish may not be a bad thing for us. The decision to actually use them or not, will have to be later but I'd like to try to clean these up. I may gift them to another engaged couple (if they actually like them, many close friends/family are getting engaged) or resell them (last option, if I could clean em up and no one wants them) afterwards if I could.
