Julio Jones loses $100k earring jet-skiing

Julio Jones may want to remove all valuables the next time he decides to try jet skiing.

According to a report by Atlanta Alive, the Atlanta Falcons’ All-Pro wide receiver lost a $100,000 diamond earring after hitting a wake and falling into the water of a Georgia lake.

“Yeah, it was worth a little bit,” Jones said.

Bobby Griffin, the self-described “Scubaman” of Lake Lanier in Gainesville, Georgia, was hoping he and local salvage diver Richard Pickering would be able to successfully recover Jones’ earring. Unfortunately, Pickering now believes it’s a lost cause, considering the piece of jewelry is likely down about 65 feet in the man-made lake.


Guess the Super Bowl ring isn't the only jewelry he's lost

Said Pope Benedict: "WOW ... that ring is bigger than mine!!!"

Rule #1 - remove all valuables before operating high powered watercraft machinery.

That sucks for him but in Sweden we have a saying "Det drabbar ju ingen fattig" which roughly would translate to "It does not hurt anyone poor atleast".

Re: Julio Jones loses $100k earring jet-skiing

Why even purchase a earring that high in value when you can invest or use on charity. I guess it's just me, I won't purchase anything that would say look at me, I am wearing more than the value of (most people) yearly income on my ear. I don't feel sorry for him and his vanity
