I've been going thru a similar situation--well, until my husband moved out anyway. The arguments and the silent treatment have got to stop. They will only make things worse. You said he bought an expensive item without discussion. Well, as the resentment gets worse, he'll probably do even more of that. In addition, he'll get to where he will buy other things, play with bank accounts, and other stuff. He will try to hide his purchases and transactions from you to avoid auguments. That's when things go from bad to worse. Soon you'll be adding another problem--TRUST. Do both of you want to save your marriage? I recommend you both see a marriage counselor before things get beyond repair. That's what we should have done three years ago. We see a marriage counsel now. We can finally be around each other and not argue. However, I'm afraid it may be too late for us because of all the damage done.
