Julio Jones found himself in a situation that you and I will likely never encounter.

The former Alabama and current Atlanta wide receiver lost an earring valued at $150,000 while jet skiing over the weekend. The earring sank to the bottom of Lake Lanier when Jones took a fall from his jet ski; and unfortunately for Jones, the spot where he lost the jewelry was about 65 feet deep.

So what did Jones do?

He did what only a person with $150,000 earrings can afford: He hired a dive team.

Unfortunately for Jones (again), the mission was an impossible one as the divers were tasked with searching for a small diamond beneath fallen trees and debris in pitch black waters. One of the divers told WXIA-TV in Atlanta“It’s down in crevasses and nooks and crannies… It’s impossible — absolutely impossible.”

Jones doesn’t seem too bothered by the loss. “It’s materialistic stuff,” he said. “You can always get that kind of stuff back.”

I have one question: Why would anyone wear $150K jewelry while on the water in the first place?

I say he got what he was asked for. Learn how lakes work.
