Turquoise, Flowers and Food?? Other than all of them being a girl's best friend, what do these things have in common? Well, the answer would be the Lowry family. In our own eclectic and unique way of functioning as a family business, we have always focused on family first. If a family member wants to add a division to the family business, we find a way to make it happen. For over 50 years we have sold turquoise jewelry and educated the world on turquoise as a gemstone. In 1993 we opened the Turquoise Museum to further educate and show off the family collection of the beautiful gemstone. The gals in the family were a bit bored with turquoise and looking for a supplement to the family business, they opened a flower shop and have grown to be one of the most highly recognized florists in Albuquerque, specializing in unique and custom designs. With the great move to the new location (2018) we had the great opportunity to add the cafe. Davonna and Danielle both have a passion for cooking and baking and love that they can share this with so many people. Every day you will find a different selection in our bakery case as the girls bake up something different every morning. Our menu is filled with good home comfort food, a daily soup special and even homemade hot cocoa.

Who knows what the next leg will be in a decade or so, but for now our business feels complete and we love that when guests visit, they feel a part of our family and welcomed to our campus with open arms.

  • If you're a Turquoise lover, this is heaven! I loved it. Could spend hours in here. Bought myself another turquoise ring and a pendant for my mom. They have a very nice selection of turquoise jewelry in their gift shop.
  • Excellent. Go early, there is a lot to see, even more to learn. The exhibits are well, they are exquisite!! They are well laid out and compressive. Cover is expensive but if you love or want/need to learn about turquoise it is well worth it. I will go back again, but I will go earlier and stay longer!!
