Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang splashes out on new diamond-encrusted necklace and matching ring in Barcelona’s kit colours
PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG has celebrated his brilliant Barcelona move by splashing out on a diamond necklace and ring in their colours.
The Gabon striker joined Barca in January on a free transfer from Arsenal after falling out of favour with Gunners boss Mikel Arteta.
And the 32-year-old forward decided to mark his move to Spain by splurging on a tennis chain complete with an 'A' pendant' and a ring to match.
But what makes the jewellery set unique is that the diamonds have been made in a mirage of blue and red, along with the Catalan colours that feature on Barca's home shirt.
The blinding diamonds have also got pink – which appears on Barca's away shirt – and green amongst them.
The former Gunners captain picked up the bedazzling set from A Jewellers in London's Hatton Garden, where he's shopped before.

Describing Aubameyang's chain on Instagram, jeweller Abtin Abassi said: "(It's a) One of one, Cuban baguette tennis rainbow chain. With the beautiful A rainbow sequence in baguettes with round diamonds all around."
Abassi appeared to be pleased with his work and stated that "We didn't come here to play around," while presenting the grinning Aubameyang with his flashy pieces.
Aubameyang – who was sporting a hat and T-shirt from deceased footballer Marvin Morgan's Fresh Ego Kid brand – then reiterated his jeweller's claims saying: "We don't play games."
