Her ring is one-of-a-kind: It's made from one of Unger's wisdom teeth.

The pair met at a music festival in Canada and have the same fun-loving view on life, so it only made sense to them to have something different to signify their love.

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

Unger's family kept his teeth from when he was younger and his dad sent one for the ring. They then took it to a jeweler to get it set in a band. He officially proposed on Halloween and they're getting married later this month in Las Vegas with Elvis as the celebrant, of course.

And as for why having this ring was important to her?
