California couple Carlee Leifkes and Lucas Unger got engaged on Halloween. Priding themselves on being nontraditional, Leifkes’ engagement ring was made from Unger’s wisdom tooth.
“When we’d spoken about it, I’d said that diamonds are so overrated,” Leifkes told BuzzFeed News. “My birthstone is a diamond. I don’t need one to prove how much someone loves me. He’d already moved all the way from Canada to do that!”
Unger’s dad mailed them one of his wisdom teeth that was removed when he was younger and they took it to a jeweller. On Saturday, Unger formally got down on one knee and popped the question – traditionally.
Leifkes, who currently is nursing a broken leg, says they will get married in Las Vegas: “I’m going to have a cast, a wisdom tooth ring, a pink dress, and Elvis is going to marry us!”
“It’s almost a contest of who has the biggest ring and whose fiancé loves them the most, and here I am with the coolest ring I’ve ever seen in my life!”
“What does a diamond signify in anybody’s relationship? I literally have my husband’s wisdom on my finger.”
