On Halloween, Lucas Mancoon-Unger surprised his bride-to-be, Carlee Leifkes, with an engagement ring made out of his wisdom tooth!

The California couple, who met at a music festival in Unger's native Canada earlier this year, came up with the idea for the ring together.

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

"Nobody will have this ring because it's a piece of him... no two people are the same — same goes for our ring!" Leifkes said.

After his dad mailed them one of the wisdom teeth Unger had removed when he was younger, they took the tooth to a jeweler to see if he could come up with something unique.

Although they picked up the ring together, Unger wouldn't let Leifkes see it until he surprised her on Saturday by getting down on one knee in front of her family and formally popping the question.

Leifkes says her ring certainly stands out from all the others she sees posted on Facebook: "It's almost a contest of who has the biggest ring and whose fiancé loves them the most, and here I am with the coolest ring I've ever seen in my life!"
