Picture this scenario: The man you want to marry pops the Q and hands you an engagement ring...made from his wisdom tooth.
That’s what happened to California resident Carlee Leifkes—and she’s psyched about it.
Carlee became engaged to her boyfriend, Lucas Unger, on Halloween—and she actually thought up the idea for the wisdom tooth ring with him.
“When we’d spoken about it, I’d said that diamonds are so overrated,” Carlee explained to 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!”
The idea came about when Lucas’ dad mailed them one of the wisdom teeth Lucas had had removed when he was younger. So Lucas and Carlee took it to a jeweler to see if he could pop it into a ring, as one does.
Carlee knew Lucas was planning to propose with the ring at some point but didn’t see the finished product until he got down on one knee on Saturday.
She says she loves that her ring stands out from everyone else’s. “It’s almost a contest of who has the biggest ring and whose fiancÃƒÂ© loves them the most, and here I am with the coolest ring I’ve ever seen in my life,” she says. “What does a diamond signify in anybody’s relationship? I literally have my husband’s wisdom on my finger.”
The couple is planning to get hitched later this month in Vegas even though Carlee has a broken leg. “I’m going to have a cast, a wisdom tooth ring, a pink dress—and Elvis is going to marry us,” she says.
Hey, congrats to the inspired couple!
