Julio Jones hires dive team to find missing $100K diamond earring


Julio Jones' hopes of finding a lost earring are in deep water.

The Falcons wide receiver hired a dive team to help him find an earring that fell into Lake Lanier in Georgia when Jones was jet skiing near training camp. The diamond earring is estimated to be worth over $100,000, according to WXIA.

While jet skiing, Jones hit a boat wake and got thrown into the water. When he came back up to the surface, the diamond earring was no longer attached to his ear.

The dive team searched 65 feet below the surface for the earring, but ran into darkness and trees that could easily hide the small item. Neither diver had luck with their search.

Diver Richard Pickering told WXIA he wasn't too optimistic they'd be able to find the piece of jewelry.

"It's down in crevasses and nooks and crannies," Pickering said. "It's impossible-absolutely impossible."

Jones may have been a little upset his earring was gone, but after signing a five-year $71.5 million contract extension with the Falcons in 2015, he may be able to replace the jewelry.

The receiver was just happy no one was injured in the incident.

"As long as I'm good, it's materialistic stuff," Jones told WXIA. "You can always get that kind of stuff back.

Even though he appears to have lost an earring, Jones did not have to worry about losing a Super Bowl ring following the Falcons shocking loss to the Patriots this past February.
