My boyfriend gave me ring that is second hand and the stones are not real - am I not worth a nice real ring?

My boyfriend is a GOOD MAN - for sure - he is a simple man - he gave me this ring for my birthday and at first I felt special that he gave me it - but then I looked properly and realized the stones were not real - just dull looking - I never wore it because I like things of quality - and just the knowing its not real - I just kind of feel embarrassed to wear it - it looks fake. The ring itself is gold and that is real. So I asked him where did he get it from as I could see it was second hand, he said he 'found' it on the ground one day when he was walking across the park - I felt a bit upset that he gave me a 'found' ring...?he asked why don't I wear the ring - this is now a full year later - and I told him because the stones are not real and I don't mean to be ungrateful but that I like real things and its sweet he gave me the ring - but that I don't like to wear it. He was upset and said I shouldn't be so shallow and materialistic - and I got upset and said I like things of quality and that's just the way I am - and AM I not worth it to give a real ring - that is new from the shop? He got more angry and I gave him back the ring and told him in future - IF he chooses to get me something that 'looks' real - make sure it IS real and not cheap imitation, I explained that the wooden beaded jewelery he gave me means SO much more to me because it was new is beautiful and is REAL - he doesn't understand what I'm saying - and I don't understand him either - so now we have called a break and I haven't spoken to him in days. What do you think?
