    Life's all about milestones — going a week without resorting to takeout for dinner, getting a promotion, signing the lease on your first apartment. And, despite how big or small the milestones are, we're all about marking them with some pretty, investment-worthy jewels. That's why we turned to three bloggers who recently hit a personal or professional goal and asked them for their lust lists.

    Intermix's social media coordinator Kristen Lam, blogger Krystal Schlegel, and creative consultant Brynn Elliott Watkins chose their favorite pieces from the Platinum Guild International showroom in Manhattan, and, ahead, they share their styling tricks to make these stunners work for the everyday. These picks may inspire you to pick up a piece or two for yourself. After all, the holiday season is just around the corner...

    Blogger Kristen Lam landed her current gig as Intermix's social media coordinator more than half a year ago, but that doesn't mean she can't still treat herself to a belated congratulatory present — or, you know, make a wish list for her family, friends, and S.O. See which platinum pieces caught her eye, ahead.

    My personal jewelry style includes...
    "Pieces that are dainty enough that I could wear them with everything."

    When it comes to accessories...
    "I’m looking for quality, aesthetic, and technicality. It's pretty, but can I wear this item every day without it tarnishing?"

    I love...
    "The fact that this ring is simple but still has an edge. It’s not a huge thing that takes [the focus] away from my outfits. Here, I would throw on a gray T-shirt with a pair of ripped jeans, ankle boots, and aviators."

    I'd style this simple band with...
    "Something fancier than my usual outfit. Maybe a leather skirt with a giant knit sweater, heels, and an amazing clutch."

    I'd wear this for...
    "Date night — you'll probably be holding hands, so you need something a little special on your fingers."

    Who I'd want to give this to me...
    "My boyfriend because it's a more sentimental item. Since it’s a classic design and made of platinum, you'll have it for years."

    If I had this brooch...
    "I would wear it when I need something extra to spruce up a regular outfit for a special event, like a date or an interview."

    I'd style this...
    "As an accent on so many different pieces — a super-casual denim jacket, my boyfriend's white button-down, or even an everyday canvas tote."

    The 24-year-old blogger behind Being Elliott has been sporting a major engagement stunner on her finger since spring and, just this past September, added a wedding ring to the collection. Even so, she's definitely not opposed to a little extra sparkle. See which pieces she'd put on her wish list.
