Per Brendan Keefe and Christopher Buchanan of WXIA 11 Alive, Jones hired a dive team to scour Lake Lanier for the valuable piece of jewelry after it fell into the water when he hit a boat wake.
Unfortunately for Jones, it doesn’t sound like the chances of finding his earring are good.
“It’s down in crevasses and nooks and crannies,” salvage diver Richard Pickering told WXIA. “It’s impossible—absolutely impossible.”

Note to self. Dont go Jet skiing with $300k worth of jewelry on. Poor Julio. He’s only made $47 mil and will barely get by on the $14 mil he’ll make this year assuming he
Poor Julio. He’s only made $47 mil and will barely get by on the $14 mil he’ll make this year assuming he doesn’t make his $4 million in bonus’s. It appears he gives a shit about his money and doesn’t want to be the next Andre Rison which is admirable.
This morning the Dive team told Julio it’s impossible to find the earring. Its somewhere 65 feet down in Lake Lanier in the mud between a shit pile of trees.
