Because these cameos will dry out or discolor you should apply baby oil or mineral oil on the cameo with a Q-tip or soft cloth. Allow it to soak overnight and wipe it off in the morning with a lint-free cloth. This should be done at least twice per year. Also, store separately from all other jewelry, either in a separate compartment from other jewelry or in a cloth bag.

The best way is to use a silver cleaner where you can quickly dip your piece into the cleaner and immediately remove it and rinse under running water.
