This Guy Wanted To Give His Girl A One Of A Kind Engagement Ring. He Succeeded
Diamond's may be forever, but they're sure as hell not original.
That's right, the Canadian native used one of his wisdom teeth that his mom had saved from when he was younger as the "stone" for Carlee's ring.
“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!”
Presumably, the jeweler was more than a little weirded out the request. Nonetheless, he came up with something that Unger was happy with.
“We told them we weren’t planning on having a diamond,” she said. “They were like, ‘You’ve never been traditional! Why start now?!’”
As oddly endearing of an idea as it is, we're hoping that for their sake, he didn't give all his wisdom away. I would hate to see the headline "Couple Injured By Feral Rhino After Attempting To Raise It On Their Own" floating around the web six months from now.
In any case, congratulations to the nontraditional newlyweds!
