Wearing your wedding ring even after divorce

My ex husband and I had been married for a year before I got my wedding ring. I love my wedding ring, it's beautiful!!!
I have been with my boyfriend for almost two years. We have talked about marriage but I doubt he will ever propose. This is his mentality......he says he wants to get me the ring HE thinks I deserve. That ring will cost at least 3k min(My old wedding ring was $800).
I have tried so many times to convince him that i truly dont want a lavish ring. If that is his will , it doesnt make sense why as soon as he paid off at debt, he got another 2,500 dollar loan to pay for a gaming computer!!!!
I want to start wearing my old ring again even if it's on a different finger. Even my ex laughed and said I might as well. I have no feelings for my ex husband like that. So wearing it will have no meaning other than a pretty ring.
What are your thoughts?

I think that would be inappropriate. Sure, it's just a pretty ring, but it's a pretty ring that you used to pledge your fidelity to a man you're no longer involved with.

I don't think I'd be ok with it, but as long as you and your man are happy and content then it's ok;) :) btw I'm so thrilled that you talked to him about it first!!! That's way awesome

 I wish that I could sell mine, but I wouldn't get much for it. I don't even like looking at it. Even though it's a great ring.

I wouldn't. I don't like the jujus associated with dickheads. 

Also your boyfriend is a financial idiot. I wouldn't marry someone who was that shitty with money.
