How to stop sterling silver from oxidizing?

Question for you jewelry makers out there....I have a lovely sterling silver pendant I wear all the time. It has intricate scrollwork and in between the scrolls it keeps oxidizing to blackish. I feel like I clean it every day!
Is there something I can use to keep it shiny and not oxidize?

Do you take it off at night? You could give it a good wipe down with a polishing cloth and stick in a ziploc with an anti-tarnish strip. I also recommend the boiling water method. Some people's skin turn silver faster than others and the jewelry requires cleaning more often.
