New Zealand Paua Shell
SKU:CPCS-SS-NZPAUAOne 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 New Zealand. 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

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!

I love my new case! It is as gorgeous as pictured and all the buttons and openings are accessible. I had another Carved case before this and it protected my phone beautifully so I have no reason to think this won't as well.
People ask me why I’m looking at the back of my phone instead of the screen. I show them the case, then they understand.
Case is beautiful. Fits. Perfect. The people at carved are wonderful to work with
Unique and beautiful!
Breathe takingOn: 11/12/2018
Took 3 weeks to deliver to Australia, and was breathe taking.
I have photos of the case on the s8 on my Instagram @Eva Bruce :)
Love this case!11/5/2018
I’m totally delighted with my lovely and functional new case. Thank you!!
Not Long LastingOn: 10/15/2018
This is a beautiful case. The phone heats up and loosens the glue. It becomes sticky, tacky feeling. It has not peeled yet, but I expect it to at any moment.
Most Beautiful Case!10/10/2018
This case is far more beautiful than pictured. The colors are vibrant and even more so when the sun or lights hit it. Fits my phone like a glove. This is truly unique!
Love it!! Beautiful. The traveler protective case has good grip support on the sides.
Great case even better company!On: 10/4/2018
I bought this for my wife and she was blown away. Looks great, she loves the textured sides of the rubber bumper making it easy to hold securely without worrying about dropping it. If I could give it more stars I would but since I can’t I’ll just be sure to keep ordering from you guys. Thanks so much!
Pictures don't do this case justice!9/25/2018
This case is gorgeous! And the photos really don't do the case justice. It's gorgeous and nothing is more beautiful than nature. The shell shimmers with greens and purples; mostly purples in lower and more natural lighting. The case itself fits the phone perfectly and has ridges on the side to help keep hold of the slippery thing. Well worth the money for a unique and uniquely beautiful case that exudes style and elegance.
Much nicer than the picture online.9/13/2018
I recently purchased a new phone and wanted a case that was s bit different yet still very functional. I came across this website and was astounded by all of the styles and choices. I really love the satellite series, so much so that I have purchased two more and am already thinking of buying them for Christmas presents!
Beautiful paua shell Galaxy S9 phone case!On: 9/10/2018
This phone case is durable and beautiful all at once! It has a lovely iridescence and yet the rubber sides take impact if the phone is dropped. Solid!
Excellent case i made even betterOn: 9/8/2018
Galaxy S9 plus fit and finish is perfect with grippy sides. Paua shell colors a little flat, i applied 2 coats of high gloss polyurethane and wow!! Stunning, beautiful piece, the coating should also protect the shell from light scratches etc.
Wow, just beautiful.8/30/2018
Wow, just beautiful. A unique piece of art that will get noticed. Love it!
This case is gorgeous! It changes color when the light hits it and its one of a kind. The craftsmanship is superior. One slight suggestion would be to make the buttons stick out a little more. The power button was not hard to find but changing the volume gets confusing especially because of the bixby button, there's no texture to differentiate!
Absolutely love my case! At one angle it looks like the picture, more of a tan with grain - at another the beautiful rainbow of colors of the Paua shell shine. Just gorgeous. The buttons are easy to push, and I feel my phone has plenty of protection. Now that I've had the quality in my hands I may end up buying another to switch out with, so many nice cases on here it's hard to choose.
The case is really well made, the appearance is awesome and the sides grip well.
Both functional and beautiful7/26/2018
I love this case! It is so unique and lovely, and is also awesome protection for my phone!
Worth every penny6/21/2018
This is my first case from carved but my entire family has them. I couldnt wait for it to arrive and it didnt disappoint! It is even more beautiful in person. Worth every penny! Will purchase more in the future I am sure!
The first words from my wife and I were WOW! This is also special because we've been to New Zealand several times and have seen this pattern in the shells. The workmanship is stunning. What a great business and it's in the USA. Thanks again for such a beautiful and quality piece of art.
Beautiful...one of a kind5/26/2018
I received a gift certificate and used it on this beautiful New Xealand Paua Sheel case. It came promptly, packaged beautifully. I love the look, so unique and individual. I could not have asked for anything different ♡♡♡
I love this case! So beautiful, unique, and made with love! Thank you carved for all you do! Great company
Honestly I thought this was made of both wood and paua shell, thinking something similar to the look of opalized wood, but I love it just the same. I can't attest to the case's durability/protection because I am overly protective of my phone, but it fits snugly and was easy to put on my phone. The buttons are also easy to push and the cutouts are perfect near the camera, USB C port, etc.
I love my new cell phone case. Delivery was quick and the workmanship was amazing. Loved the idea of shopping USA and what appears to be a small, but thriving business. Super cool!
Want to wow yourself...5/18/2018
There are sturdy IPhone X cases which certainly do the job. Nothing special. Then there is this case from Carved. If there can be such a thing as enjoying picking up your phone, something I do countless times each day, Carved has improved my experience!!! Simply gorgeous, thin profile with clear protection. This was my first case. It shall not be my last from Carved. Well done!!!!
Picture on site does not do this case justice!5/1/2018
While the picture appears to be cream/flat in color, the actual product is stunning and has varied and vibrant colors. The primary colors that come through are teal, purple and pink. The case is sturdy and has protection to prevent the phone from slipping through your hands. I love my case, and would definitely recommend to others.
A rainbow of natural color from the sea!On: 4/30/2018
Just got my Paua shell case, and it is so gorgeous! Amazing that it's 100% real shell on this case, so much color and irridescence! I love it!
Even more beautiful in person4/21/2018
This case is gorgeous! It fits my phone like a glove and the shell on the back looks even better in person. The sides of the case are textured so it is easy to get a good grip. I have already gotten lots of compliment on it. It a rare thing among phone cases: functional, fun and unique!
The color is different from the photo. It is not as peachy/pinky as it appears but is still beautiful. I love the natural characteristics of the shell combined with the fine craftsmanship of piecing the shells together. Gorgeous and high quality. This is well worth the money especially in comparison to cases that only have the image of shells printed on them. I am very satisfied with this product.
Very very happy with this!!4/6/2018
Beautifully made, and well packaged
I have been looking at this case for months and I'm so happy I bought it. Very unique and fun.
Looked great, always great products
Simply StunningOn: 3/31/2018
My super hot wife bought this case for my IPhone X and it is stunning. The multicolor reflective properties are amazing. This is a very unique case that you won’t see everywhere. The fit and finish are first rate. We have come to expect nothing but the best from Carved and we were once again impressed. We highly recommend this case.
Even more beautiful in person, then in the picture. Fits perfectly
Gorgeous! The photos don't do it justice!3/29/2018
My case is amazing. What photographs as beige is an iridescent blend of silver, pink and purple. Overall, the dominant colors are teal and purple. It is beautiful and eye-catching. It fits my phone well and seems like decent protection too.
In love!On: 3/26/2018
Hello, Team Carved! I absolutely LOVE my new phone case. It is so beautiful! The photo of the case on the website does not do it justice. By far my most favorite case I have ever had! Good protection all around as well.
I can't review the durability of the case yet, but it is absolutely gorgeous!
Wife loves itOn: 3/16/2018
I bought this for my wife. She loves it! It's a cool concept and we like how the look and colors of the case change in different lights.
Good fit and great finish on product
Stunning and very functional.3/14/2018
Love the case. It fits the Pixel 2 like a glove and is beautiful! The side grips work perfect with the buttons and protect the phone very well with no loss of functionality.
Perfect for beach loversOn: 3/14/2018

Even better in person!2/26/2018
This case is gorgeous, truly unique, and so well made. Even better in person. So happy with my purchase!!
New Zealan Paua Shell2/19/2018
Loved this case, not only are the colors vibrant but the texture of the case feels like a real shell, am hoping that after a couple of drops the case is still intact but I have faith for it seems to be very well made and I seriously doubt you would sell anything that cracks or chips with normal use. goes perfect with my gold colored android phone.
Great natural material that isn't wood...On: 2/8/2018
Love my new paua (abelone) shell case. Beautiful, a little slice of nature in my hand!
The pictyre doesn't come close to how beautiful this case is in person. Fit was perfect and zero problem with button placement as noted in another review. My case came quicker than expected and receipt was signed. I love that touch!
So happy I found Carved!1/31/2018
I received my beautiful and unique work of art phone case and within seconds it was snapped on to my Pixel 2 phone. All cutouts for my camera and buttons are precise and clean. It's simply perfect! I am so very pleased to have a part of nature on my piece of technology. It makes me feel good to carry it. I have ordered a screen protector, so I am hoping all goes well when I add that. I highly recommend Carved!! AWESOME! Thank you, Carved Team for the excellent product quality. I am a loyal customer.
