Korean Paua Shell
SKU:CPCS-SS-KOREANPAUAOne of the best things about working with natural materials is the unique differences between each piece. We first added seashells just as small inlay pieces but they were so beautiful, we just made an entire case out of them. This is Paua Shell from Korea. Take it out in the sun and see how it shimmers and shines as you move it around.
Laser cut and finished by hand.
We love working with natural materials because each finished case we make is unique. The grain pattern will react beautifully to lighting changes. The product you receive may have a slightly different pattern than what is pictured. It will be one of a kind.Natural Feel & Finish
Our finishing process is non-toxic and maintains a natural look and feel to the material. This is an amazing finish that ensures your new case will look great for years to come. We hand finish and sand every piece to create a natural, smooth feel.
- Unique Natural Shell Pattern
- Precision Laser Cut
- Made From Real New Zealand Paua Shell
- Made At Our Shop In Elkhart, Indiana
Our products are made using natural materials which will never be exactly the same and will react to lighting changes. Every case will have a different and unique pattern. We do our best to photograph a variety of grain patterns and lighting conditions to give you the best idea what our product will look like. We love the changing nature of real materials! Your case will look different in the sun than it will inside your house or car. That is what makes our products so beautiful and unique!

Purchased this for my mom’s Christmas present. I have a soft spot for all your products and she picked this one out. I love shopping local and will continue to purchase your products. Price can be a bit high on some products, when you compare the cheap $5 cases on amazon and the $50 plus here. Would like to see a tighter price gap there.
Wife loves it12/6/2018
Got this as a present for my wife as she lives this look. It was a hit and she put it on right away and hasn't taken it off since.
This phone case is a good reason to get a new phone11/19/2018
I wanted a mother of pearl phone case and found this beautiful authentic shell case at Carved. Don't fall for the other fake looking products online. I was fortunate to get this cover for my iPhone XS Max since a lot of companies do not offer options for that model. The only thing that would have been perfect is if I could have gotten the lighter shell with the light color edge for my gold phone. The Customer Service from Carved is outstanding. I received my case before the due date.
Just as expected this is my second case from Carved and the build quality and craftsmanship is on point! This case is gorgeous! I'm still rocking my case i purchased over a year ago on my note 8 as well and it's stood up to the abuse of being in the construction business.
Beautiful & unique10/14/2018
I received my paua shell case within a few days, much faster than expected. The case is sturdy, but light weight. The colors in the shell are a striking Iridescence.
Not durableOn: 10/12/2018
This phone case is GORGEOUS. It protected my phone very well.... BUT it was summer when I got it and it got so sticky every time I spent any time outside. Even just waiting for my car to cool down. THEN it started falling off in flakes... so as much as I love how it looks it sucks that my husband spent 55$ on a case that lasted me less than three months.
I haven't used this cover yet (I'm switching to this size), so I can't talk about the functionality, but it is so beautiful. I can't wait to use it!
Great people and casesOn: 10/6/2018
I absolutely love carved cases and supporting such a great company. I bought this case and it is absolutely gorgeous, unfortunately it started falling apart after about 6 months or so but their customer support was fabulous and replaced it for me! I recommend them to all of my friends. Absolutely love this company and their cases!
The entire shell has chipped off
Great productOn: 9/5/2018
Love the color and natural product. The shell isn’t impervious to puppy teeth though...
Beautiful finish but not long lasting.On: 8/30/2018
Although a very beautiful case, when the phone heats up from being in your pocket or charging, it loosens the glue or enamel used to lay the shell and actually flakes off leaving your hands feeling sticky. I've had this case for about 6 months and the shell is almost completely destroyed. I highly recommend some type of clear finish or shellac to protect the shell for future users. For the price, it's beautiful, but doesn't last.
Another great case7/19/2018
Arrived quickly and as described, that’s why I keep coming back.
Gorgeous case!On: 6/28/2018
I got this case for my S9 and it does not disappoint! The colors of the mother of pearl are vibrant and and eye catching! A classier way to bling your phone ; ) I can easily still use the edge of my phone, the case does not inhibit any functionality. Love it!
Shell is very fragileOn: 6/18/2018
I really loved this case, it is by far the most beautiful case I've ever owned. Unfortunately after 3-4 months I noticed a lot of hairline cracking along the edges and top of the phone, and it has now started flaking off bits of shell leaving a sticky white backing. I don't think I'm unreasonably hard on my phone, and have never dropped it. The shell is just too fragile. I would like to know if the company recommends a good sealer, although it's probably too late for this case since so much shell has already flaked off. I would order from Carve again, but not the shell products until they are able to find a way to keep it from cracking and flaking off.
Beautiful case but not up to everyday useOn: 6/13/2018
I really enjoy free diving and I absolutely fell in love with the paua shell case! It looks amazing in the sunlight and I have gotten many many compliments on it. Unfortunately after about 5 months the shell has started flaking off leaving behind some sticky white paper. I'm quite gentle with my phone so I was very disappointed that I didn't get even one year out of it. If you're going to spend on a Carved case, don't spend on this one unless you are prepared to replace or reseal it within a few months.
The case is absolutely beautiful! Slightly different in ‘pattern’ and coloration than example because it is unique! Very happy with it. Definitely will look to Carved for future cases.
The phone case is beautiful.5/9/2018
I was disappointed all your carved cases are out of stock. I would like to encourage you to hire some more artisans!!! How can i get on a waiting list to obtain ine? Thank you
Pretty but the shell peels easilyOn: 4/17/2018
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this case looks. However it quickly starts to peel and for almost $60 it seems like kind of a RIP off. It would have been nice if they coated in some kind of clear coat to prevent to peeling. Overall I am satisfied with the appearance but the durability is surely lacking.
Our family will never use any other case!On: 4/17/2018
We have purchased three Carved cases over the past few years. I love my walnut case, my son has a designer case that he really enjoys, and my daughter can't count the times people have complimented her Korean Paua Shell case! Customer Service is amazing. Finally we love supporting a Homegrown Company!
Best case ever4/11/2018
Beautifully crafted, excellent protection. Definitely worth it!
This is my 5th case love these I switch them up, too many nice ones to keep it the same all the time
Got this one for my girlfriend and she absolutely loved it.
worth every penny!!!! One of a kind❤️On: 4/2/2018
Love love this case! Unique edgy color!
I Can Hear the OceanOn: 3/31/2018
Crazy, but if you put this phone case to your ear, you can hear the Ocean. Seriously, this is one beautiful case. My wife just loves the iridescent colors and finish. It is a very eye catching case that will receive many compliments for sure. With Spring upon us, this the perfect case as a fashion accessory. Husbands order this case today for your wife, she will love it.
Great productOn: 3/28/2018
Thank you for this great product and service! I am a repeat customer and have told ALL of my friends and family about you. Keep it up!
Love the case!
I just love my new case! It is a beautiful work of art!!!
Korean Paua Shell Case2/19/2018
Beautiful case, vibrant colors, so unique, I did not keep this case as the New Zealand Paua Shell case was a better match for my gold colored android phone, I would recommend this case to anyone that has a black phone, it would look very classy.
This is my third purchase since discovering your fabulous product a few months ago. The Paua Shell is my second case. I got it because I love my first case, a bamboo with customized graphic on it for my Galaxy Note 8. The fit of these cases are perfect; holes line up, buttons function and it's so easy to place on/off phone. I've also purchased a wooden case for my husband's Galaxy 8+, another success in fit and beauty. I highly recommend carved.com. How cool is it to easily and affordably change the look of our phones, our most prized accessory. Looking forward to satisfying my next Fancy... I'm addicted!
Very pretty but very fragile2/1/2018
The case arrived pretty quickly which was nice. The color is beautiful, much more pink than the image shows. I really wanted to love this case, but unfortunately had to give three stars because the shell was already flaking off before I even opened the package. I needed a phone case so I tried to use it anyway hoping it was a shipping problem but the shell is still falling off every time I pick it up. Also the raised lip for the galaxy S7 edge doesn't protect the screen so be wary.
Love the case. This is my fourth case to buy from yall. The only reason for 4 stars is because the case is loose on the bottom corner.
This is my 3rd carved case and love them all. The paua shell is so different and unique my wife had to have it for her new phone. Once I upgrade my phone I will be purchasing another carved case.
Paua ShellOn: 1/6/2018
I love this case❣️ The colors are so vibrant and it is smooth to the touch. It looks even more beautiful than the picture.
Beautiful, but fragile12/22/2017
This case is gorgeous, just like the other 6 I have purchased from Carved. Although, I am nervous about the shells breaking. It already seems to have had a crack in it when I received it in the mail and has lost many fragments of shell. Pretty disappointed.
A stunning gift!On: 12/17/2017
My brother bought this case as a Christmas gift for me and I could not be more pleased! It is so gorgeous. Anyone who sees it wants to know where they can get one too. You can tell that it is a quality piece and I love it!
It is not only beautiful; it is functional. I was concerned that the phone would slip out of my hand before I received this as a gift but not now!!!
I love this case! The way the light reflects off the shells is beautiful. I've purchased four cases from Carved and I've loved every single one of them, and this one is no different.
New case for a new phone12/4/2017
While looking up what the best protective cases were for my new Note 8 I stumbled across a comment from someone who had purchased one of these and looked on your website straight away. I purchased a protective case but this one was too pretty to pass up even from the photos. The real thing is even better. I have been telling and showing all and sundry at the large hospital I work at ,so you might be getting a few more orders.
Compliments the Pixel 2 nicely!11/28/2017
First, some general comments:
Came across the Carved brand when doing some research for cases for our new Pixel 2 phones, and very happy that we did. These cases compliment the phones nicely with regard to fit, finish, functionality, protection, and appearance (they do look great). They seem very durable and in the two weeks we’ve has them so far, I see no reason why the wont last. Also, the packaging was well done and adds a personal touch, while complimenting the craftsmanship of these cases.
Korean Paua Shell - Pixel 2 - Black Traveler Protective Case:
The case feel great in the hand and the shell pattern on the back makes the phone feel unique, completely different from a full polycarbonate type of case. With the Pixel 2 being a solid, well-built phone, that feels great in the hand by itself, this case just makes it that much better. The textured pattern on the sides of the case provides a nice secure grip and the beveled opening for the fingerprint reader allows for a smooth transition from the case to the sensor. Also, the slightly raised lip that surrounds the screen on the phone provides an extra bit of protection, and it’s nice to be able to lay the phone face down without laying it directly on the screen. Lastly, the Korean Paua Shell design has a unique pattern and looks great. The colors are varied (depending on how the light hits) and beautiful. Very happy with how it turned out!
The coolest case I have owned!11/17/2017
Worth every penny! My friends and family wanted to know where I found this amazing looking case.
It looks beautiful! It's a little lighter than the picture makes it seem like it would be but it's wonderful.I like how the sides of the case cover the buttons, it looks so cool in the sunlight
I've purchased their wood ones before and thought I would try the seashell case this time. It's beautiful and mesmerizing!! If there is any gripe, it's the buttons on the side requires a more firm press to activate (which can be a good thing to keep accidental Bixby wake-ups). I highly recommend Carved cases!!
Beautiful and functional!9/8/2017
Love my new case! It took a while to arrive as I am in Canada, but it was well worth the wait! I love the iridescence to the phone case and the fact that the case have a really interesting texture that makes it less slippery and more secure when you're holding it. I've already had multiple compliments on the case and will definitely consider Carved for my next case when I change phone models!
Very good but it is starting to lose small pieces of shell every day8/27/2017
It is a really beautiful case but i start to notice That it have begin to lose small pieces of shell from the case so That is not so nice but it is really cool
Looks greatOn: 8/27/2017
I love all of the options I had to choose from. This is just as great in person as it is online. I love that I'm supporting a company that I believe in and will recommend others do the same. My husband is getting a custom case from them now!
Korean Paua Shell Case8/17/2017
I've had this case for a few days. It is slimmer than my previous case so it fits my hands better. It holds my phone nicely and the side buttons function like it isn't even in a case. The case has also gotten MANY compliments on how beautiful and unique it is. Money well spent.
Work of art...8/11/2017
I love my Paua shell cover... it's unique and super cool, everyone notices it and asks where I got it. This is my second Carved case and I will definitely be covering my next cellphone with their product.
This is a very nice case.On: 8/3/2017
This is a very nice case! My friend loves it! I am definitely looking forward to buying more cases from CARVED!
