If you thought your mom was mad when you lost your retainer in 6th grade, imagine how mad Julio Jones’ mom must be right now. So mad there is an underwater search for the jewelry.

Is that a Falcons themed jet ski? I’m adding that to the list of things I never knew I needed but I must have one now.
#Falcons WR Julio Jones lost diamond earring said to be worth 100K in Lake Lanier. We have the underwater search video at 11 @11AliveNews— Brendan Keefe (@BrendanKeefe) July 26, 2017
You could say it’s dumb to go swimming/jet skiing/whatever rich people do with expensive jewelry. However, based on my calculations, Julio has made like $100 million more than I have, so he probably doesn’t care what I have to say. In fact, Jones literally had this to say about $100,000 floating off of him.
"Yeah, it was worth a little bit," Julio Jones said.
On Monday, I almost cried when I misplaced $20. Jones was tossed from his jet ski and it cost him six figures. He doesn’t sound too broken up about it, and in the 11 Alive interview, agreed he could just replace it with a Super Bowl ring. Maybe this is just the motivation needed to put the team over the top.
