How To Spruce Up the Handles on Vintage Dresser?

Good Questions

Q: I recently found a mid-century modern dresser and matching nightstand on Craigslist for $150 (what a deal)! They are both in great shape except for some tarnishing and spots on the brass handles. How can I fix up the handles to bring a little life back into this fabulous furniture?

I was thinking maybe spray paint... If so, what color? (The pieces are a dark cherry wood color). Thanks everyone!
