I can understand not wanting to waste big money on a temporary ring that won’t ultimately have any sentiment or symbolism attached to it. I would probably feel like Fiance on that account and prefer to wait until he could afford to replace it.
What I can’t understand is why he thinks he has the right to dictate whether you can or can’t go out and buy an inexpensive place holder ring. Unless you know something more about his motives than you’re saying, my guess is the reason is he doesn’t want people to think he is cheap. He lost your ring, so I vote he gets no say.
TBH, I’d be most concerned about the controlling behavior he’s showing here, not the ring itself. You’d think he would be so contrite he’d jump at the chance to make you feel better in any way that would.
