Wrong. Based on my experience, females remember only the first sentence of
any statement that isn't to their liking, and will hold it against you for
the rest of their lives. Try -
"With all these muggings I worry so much about your safety. My mind will be
more settled if I dont buy you a diamond ring."

A few years ago when she wasn't so ex my ex-wife inherited some jewellery,
some nice pieces and a fair amount of costume pieces. She spent one evening
sorting things out into two piles, good stuff to keep and the costume stuff
to go to a charity sale. I had a look though them after she had finished and
removed a ring from the charity pile.
 "What do you think you are doing? Thats rubbish." She said. I then had to
point out that 18ct gold and a diamond that appeared to be about 5 carats
wasn't exactly rubbish in my book.........
