Who needs diamonds when you can an old tooth? This woman’s engagement ring is made from her partner’s wisdom tooth

Canadian Lucas Unger popped the question to his fiancé Carlee Leifkes using his wisdom tooth. A delighted Carlee said yes and shared photos of her unique engagement ring on Facebook yesterday. She wrote:

So incredibly excited to marry my best friend, the man who knows that his wisdom tooth means more to me than a diamond. Can’t wait to be a weirdo with you and dance our way through life to Thee Oh Sees and Black Sabbath. We have never been the “traditional couple”, why the heck start now?”

The couple met at a music festival in Canada earlier this year and planned the tooth ring together.  Carlee told Buzzfeed:

When we’d spoken about it, I’d said that diamonds are so overrated. 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!

 

What does a diamond signify in anybody’s relationship? I literally have my husband’s wisdom on my finger.”

When the couple came up with the idea to replace the traditional diamond with Lucas’ tooth, they called up Lucas’ father who had saved his son’s wisdom teeth following an operation to remove them when he was younger, and had the tooth posted to them. A local jeweller was able to set the tooth onto a band and turn it into a unique engagement ring. The couple plan to get married in Las Vegas by Elvis later this year. Carlee who currently has a broken leg said:

I’m going to have a cast, a wisdom tooth ring, a pink dress, and Elvis is going to marry us!”
