You can try out some of the tips in this thread. The method with the soapy water would be the easiest and cheapest solution.

Pewter normally tarnishes, so after you clean it, it will again develop a patina with time...
For people that are annoyed with this problem with their jewellery, I recommend that they store their jewellery (and any items that they don't regularly use or which aren't for decoration) in boxes, so that the pewter is less exposed to air. I keep everything in a proper jewellery box, so I rarely have to clean my items. I noticed that if I leave my items outside for a couple of days that they really get noticeably darker.

To see a world in a Grain of Sand,
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

I've had really good luck using Maas metal polish on my older pieces that have gotten dingy looking.

www.maasinc.com/products_metalpolish.aspx is their main page. I love this stuff, it's never given me any problems with cleaning even the most tarnished pieces.
