A bride-to-be's engagement ring pictures are going viral!

Carlee Leifkes and Lucas Unger, a California couple, got engaged on Halloween.

The pair, who met at a music festival in Lucas Unger’s native Canada earlier this year, came up with the idea for the ring together, his wisdom tooth!

“When we’d spoken about it, I’d said that diamonds are so overrated,” Carlee 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!”

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.

Carlee Leifkes, says the pair will be getting married in Las Vegas this month: “I’m going to have a cast, a wisdom tooth ring, a pink dress, and Elvis is going to marry us!”

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!”

“What does a diamond signify in anybody’s relationship? I literally have my husband’s wisdom on my finger.”
