A couple is making headlines for their unconventional taste in engagement rings.

Carlee Leifkes and Lucas Unger, from California, are recently engaged.

However, they decided to deviate from a traditional engagement ring and decided to use Unger’s wisdom tooth in place of a diamond.

The couple announced their engagement on October 30, and Leifkes posted a photo of the ring on her Facebook page on November 2.

She said that she and her new fiancé have “never been the ‘traditional couple.’”

“Our whole message is to say eff the materialistic expectations of weddings and just be yourself because that’s the way we fell in love!” Unger told Storyful via Facebook chat.
