Loses $150k Earring In Lake

Jones, who said the earring was worth north of $100,000, hired a team of divers to try and recover the jewel, a daunting task given Lake Lanier's depth and considerable murkiness.

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 can likely afford to replace his lost diamond.

The superstar of the Atlanta Falcons lost his diamond earring while jet skiing.

"Pitch dark, which I was rather surprised at", Griffin said.

The divers tried shining their lights along the lake's bottom, hoping to see the diamond reflect back at them.

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

Pickering likened it to searching for the earring in the woods after throwing it out of a auto going 70miles per hour in the middle of the night. In the freezing cold water. Add silt and mud to limit visibility to under one foot.

"Get the picture? Not an easy task!"

You can't blame Julio Jones for wanting to take advantage of the last few remaining days before Falcon veterans are scheduled to report in Atlanta for fall camp.

As he said, "it's materialistic stuff". If not, you may have to hire a dive team - and we all know how pricey that could get.

Or even better - replace it with a Super Bowl ring this season.
