(Newser) – An NFL star's diamond earring valued at more than $100,000 is now presumed lost on the murky bottom of a Georgia lake, per the AP. 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. Divers have been searching the lake bottom, hoping to capture a flashlight's reflection off the jewelry amid old trees submerged since the man-made lake's creation in the 1950s. So far, no luck.
