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

Review for: Crushed Paua Shell

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.

Awesome case
Review for: Crushed Paua Shell

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.

No surprise
Review for: Crushed Paua Shell

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 and she received the package when I got home. Need to think about those things.

Review for: Crushed Paua Shell

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)
Review for: Crushed Paua Shell

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....

Review for: Crushed Paua Shell

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. :(

Review for: Crushed Paua Shell

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.
