LOS ANGELES (WGN-TV) — A couple says they were never very traditional, and now they have the engagement ring to prove it.
Before Lucas Unger proposed to Carlee Leifkes on Halloween, he knew better than to buy a diamond ring. To Carlee, diamonds were overrated.
“My birthstone is a diamond. I don’t need one to prove how much someone loves me,” said Leifkes.
So Unger proposed with a ring, made from his own wisdom tooth, instead.
Leifkes shared a photo of her ring on Facebook.
“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?” she posted.
The couple will be married in Las Vegas, by Elvis, later this year.
