Looks like teeth may just be the new diamonds… with a groom-to-be in California proposing to his girlfriend with his very own wisdom tooth!
Usually couple’s go to Tiffany’s or an exclusive jeweler at their local shopping plaza to pick out the perfect diamond, however Lucas Unger, 23, decided to gift his bride-to-be Carlee Leifkes with the one-of-a-kind and slightly gross ring extracted from his mouth when he was just 17.
Leifkes who said ‘yes’ when Unger got down on one knee and presented her with the wisdom tooth ring on Halloween, took to Facebook to explain the unusual choice of jewellery.

“Lucas knows his wisdom tooth means more to me than a diamond.
“We have never been the traditional couple, why the heck start now?” she wrote.
The pair, who first met at a music festival earlier this year, are now planning their Las Vegas wedding, officiated by an Elvis impersonator.
For those of you a little creeped out, don’t worry – the tooth has been professionally cleaned and coated… so it’s okay, right!?
