New Zealand Paua Shell

Description

SKU:CPCS-SS-NZPAUA

One 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.

Completely Unique!

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

WHY DO SOME PHOTOS LOOK DIFFERENT?

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

Beautiful!

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 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.

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.

Beautiful Craftmanship!

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!!!!

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.

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!!

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.

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.
