If itís solid nickel you can use a jewelry rouge cloth, or nevr-dull wadding. If itís alloy just use a jewelry polishing cloth ( not rouge)

I use jewelry cleaner/shiner. I once put a buffer attachment on my Dremel to make it go a little quicker, (instead of using a rag)- it did work, but I got Silvo in my eye...

There are a number of older threads
here, to look at: polishing Nickel Ferrules

Be sure to clean them well afterwards,
(alcohol) to retard oxidation, and then
waxing will keep them shining.

(Renaissance wax recommended).
