Falcons WR Julio Jones Loses $150,000 Diamond Earring in Lake

USA Today Sports

Falcons receiver Julio Jones recently took a tumble off a jet ski and when he emerged from the lake waters he was missing one of his diamond earrings, reportedly valued at about $150,000, had fallen out, ESPN reports.

So the all-pro receiver hired a dive team to scour Lake Lanier to recover the lost jewelry, according to a report by WXIA-TV in Atlanta.

Divers, who went as far down as 65 feet, came up empty-handed on Tuesday, WXIA reported.

“It’s down in crevasses and nooks and crannies,” Richard Pickering, one of the salvage divers, told WXIA. “It’s impossible — absolutely impossible.”

Asked if the earring was worth $100,000, Jones told WXIA, “Yeah, yeah, it was worth a little bit.”
