Not defending your sister- she was being rude.
Yes, clusters read as a less expensive ring choice. They are generally cheaper than a single stone.
The clarity of stones also matters a great deal in clusters. I have some that look cheap and others that look expensive. What matters to me is that I like them, not whether other people do.

I love the setting it’s very pretty.
It doesn’t look cheap to me. Cheap implies to me that something is poor quality and/or poorly made.
It does however with the cluster look inexpensive. Cluster rings are typically significantly less expensive than a ring made with a solitaire stone.
I’m of the school of thought that clusters are done because a solitaire in that size stone is out of budget. And there is nothing wrong with choosing a ring within your budget.
I’m sure your fiance put a lot of thought into choosing your ring and I hope you enjoy it and all it’s sparkliness.
