Julio Jones hires dive team to try to find lost $150K earring

Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones recently took a tumble off a Jet Ski, and when he emerged from the lake waters, he was missing something.

One of his diamond earrings, reportedly valued at about $150,000, had fallen out.

So the All-Pro receiver hired a dive team to scour Georgia’s 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 whether the earring was worth $100,000, Jones told WXIA, "Yeah, yeah, it was worth a little bit."

Jones’ jeweler said the earring is worth $150,000.

Jones, who reports to Falcons training camp on Wednesday, said he’s just glad no one got hurt when he fell off the Jet Ski.
