Yes, you read that headline correctly. This engagement ring is actually made from a human tooth that fell out of someone's head.

Well, it wasn't so much that it fell out as it was removed. Californian couple Carlee Leifkes and Lucas Unger claim they're not a "traditional couple" and, sure enough, they didn't want their engagement ring to be traditional either.


So incredibly excited to marry my best friend, the man who knows that his wisdom tooth means more to me than a diamond....

As Carlee put it, she felt that diamonds are overrated and wanted something different for her engagement ring, hence Lucas mounting his wisdom tooth on a ring for his bride-to-be. "What does a diamond signify in anybody’s relationship?" she replied, "I literally have my husband’s wisdom on my finger."

No surprises, of course, but the wedding they're planning will be in Las Vegas - with an Elvis impersonator. As she wrote to her fiance, she "can’t wait to be a weirdo with you and dance our way through life to Thee Oh Sees and Black Sabbath."

If we eye-rolled any harder, our retinas would separate.
