Red-purple often goes by magenta, fuchsia or wine colors (burgundy, claret). Besides being a popular
tie color (a darker red builds trust), burgundy was the most popular lipstick shade in the '90s
and continues to be a wardrobe staple for women and men alike.
Rhodolite garnet is a quintessential red-purple gemstone, though tourmaline can show beautiful red-purple hues.
Rhodonite is usually more pink than pink-purple, but some stones may have a more purple look.
Kunzite is an uncommon and lovely pale pink-purple gemstone.
Chalcedony can be dyed magenta, which looks terrific if the color stays (which it generally doesn't).
Swarovski crystals appear in "burgundy", "garnet" and "fuchsia", and fuchsia
crystals are especially striking when paired with complementary green shades or radiant white pearls.
Burgundy is a popular color for dyed pearls, silk, wood and leather. Cordovan leather has a great burgundy
hue, but horse lovers beware: it's made from horse hide.
