Villagers happily pay 7,999 bells for any gem type, and 9,999 for each metal! (Though we prefer to use gold ore, two full golden furniture sets and then some are in our posession now.)

I’m not going to bore you with the details of what I went through to figure this out- and in fact, I wasn’t the first one to realize this was possible, but you can take advantage of the way the game generates hybrid flowers to breed the flowers you want.
Note that this method requires you to have one open character slot and be OK with changing the 3DS’ time- though note that we won’t ever save the game on a different date.
