You can re-surface/spiff up costume jewelry using colored nail polish. I just touched up the worn gilding on a vintage pendant using gold-colored polish. I have also used auto touchup paint.
You can do the same with worn silver-colored pieces or even colors. I touched up a chipped 60's enamel pin with colored nail polish, too. Now that polish comes in so many colors, it's easier and cheaper than ever.
