Who needs a blinged-out engagement ring when you can have your husband-to-be's tooth on your finger? Sure, not every girl dreams of a classic diamond solitaire as her engagement ring, but newly engaged couple Carlee Leifkes and Lucas Unger took the cake with an engagement ring made out of some interesting materials, including his WISDOM TOOTH.

Carlee and Lucas met at a Canadian music festival earlier this year, and he's already moved to be closer to her. The couple had been planning to get engaged and knew that they wanted to choose an offbeat engagement ring.

"When we'd spoken about it, I'd said that diamonds are so overrated," Leifkes told Buzzfeed. "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!"

Lucas had his dad send him an old wisdom tooth, and he and Carlee took the tooth to a jeweler to see what they could do with it. Lucas hid the finished product from Carlee until he proposed on Halloween.

When she posted the unique ring to Facebook, 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?"

It seems that the couple is planning an equally original wedding this month in Las Vegas. Carlee, who's recovering from having 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!"

Carry on, you crazy lovebirds!
