Tarnishing is a normal chemical reaction in silver, that is intrinsic to the material. To prevent tarnishing, simply wear your silver often - interestingly this helps to keep it clean.
Chemicals in water can cause some unpreventable reactions. Immersing your piece in water voids any guarantees offered at the time of sale. Many customers wear silver in water which ages the look of the piece slightly. If you are happy to have a more antiqued and less "as new" sheen to your piece, you may wear it in water, while exerercising your best judgement.
If you do experience some tarnishing you can use a bit of silver polish to remove the tarnish from the item. Just a tiny amount with a soft cloth is enough.
