While many brides-to-be go for the aforementioned precious gemstones and even natural fancy colored diamonds, others prefer various semi-precious stones, either for economic reasons or simply out of a matter of taste. There is wide range of semi-precious stones in an array of colors including purple. Amethyst is the go-to stone for this feminine and fun color. Purple Geode cakes are some of the hottest in the industry, as the contrast of the purple coloring with the stark white cake base adds a huge wow factor.
