A man proposed to his wife using an engagement ring made of bone from his amputated leg.

Mike Perrett lost his right leg in 2006 after falling off a mountain while volunteering at an Indian orphanage, but rather than disposing of the limb, he decided to turn it into an engagement ring for his wife.

Mrs Perett told BuzzFeed: "I guess why it's so special to me is because I think it shows his bravely coming to terms with something like that so positively ... which has to be a good attribute for marriage."
