(Newser) – Take note: It's probably not a great idea to propose marriage by sending a $76,600 engagement ring through the mail, unless you're absolutely certain your intended is going to say yes. Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams sent a ring to former Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels around Valentine's Day, but she turned down his proposal—and didn't return the ring. Now Williams is suing to get it back, the Odessa American reports.

In his affidavit, Williams claims he also sent Daniels $5,000 for bills and a baseball to give her brother. The pricey ring, and the recorded marriage proposal that accompanied it, was a surprise. Williams says he asked for the ring back after Daniels said no, but she claimed to have lost it. An insurance investigation, however, revealed that her father actually had the ring. Now her dad says he will give it back, even though Williams allegedly told Daniels to keep it at first, thinking she would change her mind.
