Ex­pen­sive dive

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

An NFL star’s di­a­mond ear­ring val­ued at more than $100,000 is now pre­sumed lost on the murky bot­tom of a Ge­or­gia lake.

WXIA-TV re­ported Tues­day that At­lanta Fal­cons star wide re­ceiver Julio Jones lost it when he hit a boat wake and took a spill while jet ski­ing in Lake Lanier, about 50 miles out­side At­lanta.

He resur­faced but his pricey ear­ring didn’t.

Scuba divers have been search­ing the lake bot­tom, hop­ing to cap­ture a flash­light’s re­flec­tion off the jew­elry amid old trees that have been sub­merged since the man-made lake’s cre­ation in the 1950s.

So far, no luck.
