Case looks a lot more feminine than I would have liked. I’ll probably end up getting a different one.
I wasn’t sure of it at first.. I am very pleased, thank you
Very happy with my case. Only thing I would change is the two buttons for the volume. They are too flat, which makes it a bit hard to find them if not looking at them. Other than that, absolutely love it!
Love my new phone case! Thank you!
Lovin' this unique beauty10/17/2018
I absolutely love this phone case. It is so unique, eye-catching, and will definitely show up any other boring case out there. The side buttons for power/volume don't protrude from the case, so finding their exact location does take some getting accustomed to (I'm adjusting fine). Would highly recommend any of their cases - clearly so much care goes into each one they produce.
This case is not only beautiful but sturdily designed. What a unique way to protect and decorate my phone!
Fits perfectly and I have received many compliments!
Love this case, not only is it gorgeous in person, but it is very functional. The case itself is durable and the buttons are very easy to use.
Stylish but disappointing8/18/2018
I hoped the case would have a better lip around the screen like my speck case. Looks nice but I need more protection for my iPhone X.
Beautiful Case; BEAUTIFUL SERVICE8/16/2018
The shells are so authentic and pretty! The black traveler case has held up well so far (I drop my phone multiple times daily). It is well constructed and fits my phone well. I also ordered the screen protector. The instructions were user friendly, and it’s been resisting scratches. The packaging for the case is super creative! That was unexpected. Initially, I ordered the wrong size case and didn’t realize until I received it. I sent an email in the evening and had a response by the morning. They aren’t kidding when they say you’ll be surprised at HOW AWESOME THEY ARE WHEN IT COMES TO RESOLVING ISSUES! Looking forward to supporting this marvelous company in the future when it’s time for a new case.
Great protection with sparkle color
Simply stunning case8/9/2018
Beautiful case. It is much more gorgeous in person than in the website photos. The shells really shine in the light. The case fits my phone perfectly. I get many compliments on it.
Very pretty, yet simple enough to be used by the gentlemen in your life. Gave it to my husband and he loves it!

The beauty of this case must be seen in person. Very pleased with fit and functionality of this case. Case is trim, texture on edge ensures good grip.

Very nice I like it very much. This is the second case I have bought from carved, the first one has a tiger on it. Question will you be adding cases for the new Pixel 3 which will be coming out.
Sparkling gold!On: 8/4/2018
I love the sparkling gold look to this! The price was great too but beyond that these products are made well! I have three other cases from Carved. ❤️
My wife loved it6/2/2018
Fit perfectly, the buttons press nicely & a great grip! And, the crushed shell is beautiful. Thanks!
looks and feels great5/30/2018
I'm delighted with the case so far. It was easy to put on the phone, and it looks and feels great. It's lightweight but feels protective. I also really appreciated the packaging! No plastic, and it was super cute.
A case that grows on you4/10/2018
I didn't like this case much when I first got it. It seemed too feminine. I feel like it has a little more yellow in it than I expected. But it has been growing on me. It sparkles. Not in a glitter way. It looks like sand on a sunny day. I have to give it five stars because Carved did a great job, as usual, on the case. I don't think you'll be disappointed if you buy this case. Just an FYI - I wondered what the texture would be like. It's relatively smooth but there is some texture to it. It won't flake off or anything in your pocket or anything. If you try to stretch out on in like you would on sand at a beach, you'll just end up looking stupid. Not that I tried that, of course. :)
Crushd Paua Shell Case8/13/2017
Love the case, it looks beautiful and feels great however after a few months it started to break-the side black rubber part broke apart from the case, so sad since I did love it until then
Excellent service and a truly unique and high quality product! This is my second case and after I bought a new phone I k ew exactly where to get a new case. Shout out to the Midwest!!! I'm in SF and can't find anything this cool. Thank you!!
Smaller Paua Shell5/31/2017
This was a gift and the recipient loved it!
Happy with the quality and unique pattern of shells from NZ. Actually live in NZ too so all good!
Overall goodOn: 3/15/2017
I like the look and feel of the case. My only complaint is the side buttons. They're hard to identify by feel only. Otherwise, I like it.
Love the phone case-its beautiful, sleek and easy to hold. I got a screen protector that I have loved in the oast but had difficulty this time around and it looks messy and smudgy and on day 1 is peeling off the corners.
Product is very nice as expected, but too pricey. Would have never of paid $50 if it wasn't a gift. With that said my daughter's Xmas surprised is ruined as the return label said Carved.com and she received the package when I got home. Need to think about those things.
Paua ShellOn: 10/10/2016
I love this Paua Shell case! I received it today and it's beautiful! Really, even better than the photograph! Thank you Carved!
Lovely Produc!! (but for the price I'm a tiny bit disappointed)10/6/2016
First of all the service Carved provided was great - the product arrived in the UK a week after I ordered, which I would say is pretty good for the $3.99 shipping.
The shell part of the case is lovely, and exactly as I expected.
I have rated the product 4 star for two reasons. First of all, for the price I would expect the 'plastic' part of the case - i.e. the chassis that the hand made part is fitted to - to be of a higher quality than it is. The plastic part (for the Galaxy S6 model at least) is quite tacky and cheap, so that left me a little disappointed.
My second bug-bear is more to do with how I use my phone. I like to slide a magnetic plate inside the case, so that the phone will stick to the magnetic holder I have in my car. Unfortunately when I put the magnetic plate inside this case it moves how the plastic part aligns to the power button, and hence the power button doesn't work.
It really is a lovely product, however for the price I would expect a little more finesse.
Pretty case, but....On: 10/6/2016
The case itself is beautiful & fits on my phone very well. My problem is the cutouts for the side buttons. Because of the way the cutouts are made, the buttons along the side for volume & off/on are recessed and are rather awkward & somewhat difficult to maneuver. Because of this, I find the case "almost" un-useable. Which is quite sad for the price I paid. :(
Arrived quick. It's beautiful with the clear case.
My favorite case iPhone 5sOn: 9/27/2016
Got the traveler case. Was skeptical on how it would look. Didn't want it to be too bulky since the back design is so pretty. It's perfect. My phone is protected and looks cute. I would buy this a million times over if I needed to. Will definitely buy from then again due to the care, quality, and customer service experiences I had.
Love it. Very beautiful and girly.
