Not Quite as Pictured10/13/2017
So the case arrived and it fits great. Rubber sides feel strong and it's easy to use the buttons. The problem is that the rich, purple hue of the wood that is pictured on the website does not reflect the actual color of the wood on the product. The product I received is faded, a little blotchy, and honestly looks like the color started to bleed out. While I'm still very pleased with the overall quality of the case and will buy others in the future, buyer please be aware that the color is not as rich as pictured.
5 stars but could be 6!9/29/2017
Beautiful, well designed case. The only thing I would change is the black exterior...not because it's not functional, but because I'm personally not a fan of Black cases and wish there were more color options to choose from. The turtle is gorgeous! Let me know if you start designing without the black exterior and I would definitely order another one!! Thanks for doing such a great job Carved!
I was hesitant to by the turtle inlay...9/26/2017
I was very hesitant to by this case due to the negative reviews regarding the shells falling off rendering the case sticky and essentially ugly/broken looking. I decided to go ahead and purchase the case anyways and am SO GLAD I did. The case is absolutely beautiful. Every detail and color is even better than I had hoped and after owning this case for over 6 months, it is still in perfect condition with no indication of pieces falling off anytime soon. I also love the grip on the case. I have almost dropped my phone a dozen times but managed to grip it and avoid what could have been a very painful attack by the cement. Overall I could not be more pleased and would recommend this case.
So soOn: 9/25/2017
Looks nice, but after about 2 months the adhesive used on the mother of pearl shell is wearing off causing the shells to fall off.
This is my 3rd case purchased from Carved. I've also backed their wood wallet on kickstarter. These cases are not just beautiful works of art, they are also functional in that they protect your phone. I have dropped each phone I've owned with a carved case multiple times and NEVER had an issue. The customer service team is great as well. I mistakenly chose the wrong shipping option and they refunded the money immediately. Made in the US, great quality, great design, great people, what else could you ask for?
Flaking TurtleOn: 9/15/2017
I really do love my case. Everyone comments how absolutely beautiful it is. Why the bad rating? I spent far more on this case than I usually would and turtles are my favorite. The problem...the little shells inlayed to create the turtle's shell...keep falling off. I have lost two of the little mother of pearl colored shells completely and the three largest swirled shells in the middle are loose. The pieces are held in place by some sort of glue, but it isn't sturdy enough. Like some people, when i hold the phone, I place one finger on the center back. Apparently, the heat from my finger heats the glue and the shells release and fall off. I'm really sad that for the money, it isn't constructed better.
This case is my favorite!On: 8/29/2017
Sooooo nice! I loved the design, and the case looks even better in person! It also is extremely protective; I have dropped my phone numerous times and there is no damage at all! Carved stayed in contact with me throughout the process and I always knew where my case was. It was shipped in a timely fashion, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves wood/wood cases!
The only thing I find not quite right is that with the phone covers you cannot get glass covers to fit with it to protect your screen on your phone. Otherwise fantastic craftsmanship. I love it!
Awesome as usual8/28/2017
This is my N-th case. I enjoyed every single one of them. I buy so many due to phone changes or, more often, I like a new case.
My telephones had been very happy with the protection and with the gorgeous designs... And so have I.
I bought this for my sister, who's an avid diver. She absolutely loves it!
Honestly I was rather disappointed with this case. The wood of the turtle hardly stands out from the rest of the wood case and all you see is the turtle's shell, which looks kinda silly just by itself. Also the charging cable can't be plugged into the phone at all without taking the case off. These things together render the case rather useless. I bought it from overseas quite a long time ago; it took a long time to get to me and was so disappointed I didn't bother to say anything.
Thank you so much for this masterpiece. I understand that it may look to be on the "simpler" side, but believe me when I say it isn't. The handiwork of how the pieces fit together is beautiful. Personally, turtles mean a lot to me, so I love my phone case. Shipping was also much fast than expected! Thank you so much!
carved iphone case.8/3/2017
It's even nicer in my hand. One of the nicest iphone cases i have seen. Also, the service from carved was amazing.
Beautiful, well made, needs a little more8/2/2017
Purchased this for my wife and she loved it. Paua shell was quality and had nice color. Wood inlay was well crafted. Purple heart is quality, but could have used a little bit more of a coating to keep it shining. The grip-edge has the right amount of grip without being too rugged. My only real complaint is that the lip that comes up onto the screen edge could have been a tiny bit higher and thicker (so when the phone lays/falls on the screen face, it keeps the face off of the surface). This is arguably the most important feature for protection of modern phones, and it was a little on the thin side. Way better than nothing, which is what a lot of "fancy" phone covers do, so I applaud them for trying to make it both beautiful and functional.
This case is freaking beautiful man! Love it, very well made.
excellent...craftsmanship and service!7/22/2017
Even better than the photos...and fast delivery. Love it!!!
I was not sure about it at first. I wasn't sure if the case was going to be protective or if it was just for looks. But when I opened the package you can see that these cases were high quality. The company does a great job in putting effort into each individual case and the quality is very nice. As for protection, I dropped it a little after I got the case and was very nervous but nothing was cracked or scratched; including the case. Great product, you won't regret it!! Plus all of their designs are very unique, you won't find one like it anywhere else!
This is the second case I've purchased from Carved, and once again I absolutely love it! It's so pretty and arrived super fast even though I live in Europe. Thank you!
BEST PHONE CASE EVER7/18/2017
I love this case so much! It is high quality and the detail is beautiful!
This is such a beautifully crafted case! The grips on the side are very comfortable and the design is gorgeous. Will definitely be buying in the future! This case photographs with a slightly more red hue than it is but the quality of the case exceeded my expectations.
Great fit, beautiful case. Just what I was looking for.
This case looks great, is high-quality, and there were a few other cool things in the box like a thank-you from Alexis and a picture of Coco, the head of security. (She's a dog). It seems like a great team works here and they make great products!
Great case! Not only are we impressed with quality and craftsmanship, my wife received several compliments.
Beautiful, functional, unique. I hear compliments on this thing all day long... No one even noticed my cool new shirt.
Case fits nicely to phone. Buttons work great, everything lines up properly, grips on sides a god since the phone is quite slippery without. Really nice craftsmanship. Depending on lighting the hue of the wood changes. In sunlight, there is more brown, under light bulb is more burgundy. The pics on the sight are fairly accurate. I have read there has been issues with the shells falling off. I will update later if there are any changes. Today is 6/27/2017.
Own a piece of nature. Classy artOn: 6/23/2017
The turtle case. Very classy. Work of art. Truly worth owning a piece of nature. Love it. I will be buying more.
Great product, shells do come off.On: 6/18/2017
I love the case the wood color and the shells used for the turtle inlay. I wish a stronger glue or paste was used so in the heat the shells wouldnt come off.
Galaxy S8 Turtle Wood Case6/16/2017
I love this case! It fits perfectly and looks exactly as pictured on the website. My husband got a case earlier from Carved and it is really nice too. I'd definitely recommend to others.
Turtle Inlay - iPhone 7 Plus Traveler Wood Case6/9/2017
Hello, I received the Traveler Wood Case faster than I expected which is great! I loved my Turtle Inlay it is pretty, very well done - nothing to be compared to in the store market. The packaging was awesome I could see every little detail being taking care of.
Thanks and continue your good work.

Was great, until...On: 6/6/2017
I loved this case when I got it in January of 2017. I was a bit annoyed at the buttons being too flush with the case and thus hard to find, but the beauty of the case allowed me to look past that. However, in May, the turtle inlay pieces started coming off and the glue was very wet and sticky. I don't live in a particularly humid area, so it was both shocking and sad to see this.
We are really suprised how great the case is!!!
Also a great packaging material and a perfect service!
Thank you very much!
Best regards from Switzerland!
Love this Case! ❤5/31/2017
Right when you feel it in person, you can tell that it's a quality product. It fits on the galaxy S8 very snug and comfortably. Also it is just beautiful. The best case I've ever owned!!!
Love the packaging you guys do for your products. Feels super special
My new cell phone case is more beautiful than I was expecting! The wood and shell inlay is so flush and the side grip feels secure in my hand, without compromising the slim galaxy s8's frame. Also HUGE respect for the beautiful, paper packaging!
Seaside Series Turtle Inlay -iPhone 7 Plus Clear slim Case5/23/2017
Beautiful phone case!!! I never had a better looking case, it is so unique, so well crafted. I'm getting so many compliments on it!! The colors in the Turtle are gorgeous. I love this case , if you have your phone out all the time own a striking case like this!
Love itOn: 5/18/2017
I've had it for a week so far and it's great quality
Expensive, but worth it!On: 5/16/2017
This is the 3rd Carved phone case I have had over the years. I love the woodwork and detail of their products. The wood and mother of pearl are very unusual and I have received many complements. This cost 55 dollars which is higher then what I normally pay but this case is very unique so I feel it's worth it. Joe Bob says check it out!
Beautiful art work. Compliments all of the time.
Love it !!On: 5/12/2017
I received my case last week and I absolutely love it ! It looks as good as pictured . I love the feel of the case and it doesn't add unnecessary bulk. Will be using this company for other cases I might need in the future .
Let me put it this way...you will never see a more beautiful case. I purchased the "skateboard" case 2 months ago and it was "cute". I have already dropped my S8 and it wasn't damaged. Both are great, but the TURTLE is more unique. Thank y'all.
Awesome work!On: 5/9/2017
My new turtle case is beautiful. Loads of comments already.
worth every cent, you won't be disappointedOn: 5/3/2017
I LOVE this case. It is beautiful, and the mother of pearl inlay is so pretty. Great quality, I have dropped it 3 times and it and my galaxy s 8+ don't have even the slightest mark. I have received several compliments on it. I am very happy with my purchase and the lovely customer service. Glad that such quality cases are made here in the U.S.
The case us great quality and seems to do a good job protecting the phone. I would purchase another case from this company.
Great case!On: 5/3/2017
As advertised, feels nice to hold and lovely carving. Also came with a personalised thank you which was nice, good work! :)
Thi case s the coolest ive ever had and believe me I've had alit lol I live by the beach and this case is quite the hit both old and young think it's sooooo cool , thank you carved family, I also must say the shipping was super fast, thanks again Dee Dee
Almost PerfectOn: 4/27/2017
Design is beautiful, and the case feels amazing in hand. Withholding one star for a few minor quibbles that keep this case from being perfect: there is not enough differentiation between the volume buttons and the Bixby button, resulting in pressing one when you intend to press the other: more of a bump would be useful here. Also, the lip of the case on the top front and back could extend a little more to provide more protection and elevation when the case/phone is placed face down. Otherwise, by far the best case I've used in a while.
Maybe the best case ever!4/27/2017
I completely love this case! Fits awesome and the Turtle inlay is beautiful! Thanks!
This is my third carved case and when I upgraded my phone I just had to get a new carved case it fits great looks great and I get asked all the to be where I got it from. Love that they are made in my home town of Elkhart Indiana!
