SO…I am on a search for an E Ring and I am completely in LOVE with asscher’s and have been for years. I’m also in love with Princess cuts, but had one with my first marriage (I’m a widow) and want something different this time so that it doesn’t feel ‘weird’ although that could change at any time. I googled Asscher, to see what styles of rings I liked and have found a few that I just adore, but I can’t seem to find ANY in a jewelry store. I finally found a few online that are *close* but maybe it’s just wishful thinking? What do you think, compare these two photos and tell me if they’re close or if I need to go back to the drawing board? I’m afraid my dream ring may only exist on google image :0(

The first pic is definitely an asscher!

The first one is an Asscher, but the next two are princess cuts and the last one is a round cut in a six-prong setting.

Can you buy a loose Asscher cut stone and have it set however you’d like? That’s what my DH did.

Well I don’t know if you are partial to buying your ring at a jeweler’s, but there are lots of website retailers that sell asscher rings:

Start a file to compile images, then take them with you to a jeweler who does custom work. The custom process is timeconsuming, but so very rewarding. FI and I had my e-ring custom made, and I couldn’t be happier with the final product.

I think asscher and princess cuts are very different. asscher is less popular because they don’t sparkle as much, and they have to be tall and deep, so they don’t “face up” as big. however, I LOVE them and really wish I had one myself.
have you tried searching for emerald cut? that is super close to an asscher, but rectangular. they’re really pretty, I like the 3-stone rings with that cut, like this: http://www.bluenile.com/diamond-ring-platinum_17468?rf=pd
also, there is a kind of princess cut that has the corners cut off. I think they’re called “radiant square” but there might also be a different name: http://www.danddgroup.co.in/image/diamond/RADIANT%20CUT%20DIAMOND.jpg
I really like them because they don’t have the sharp pointy corners of a traditional princess.
OR, what if you got a princess cut, but in a setting that is totally different from the setting from your first marriage?

oops, there’s actually 4 pictures…the first is the one from google the rest are from MoissaniteCo…since I’m strongly considering an Asha ring instead of diamond :0)

Wow, I didn’t see all the replies until after the fact, oops!!! My plan is to have the center stones replaced with an Asscher (the website I’ll be ordering from can switch out the stones with no problem), so it’s the sidestones and setting I’m looking at…so imagine them with an Asscher.
I’ve considered a Princess with a totally different setting (my first was a solitaire in yellow gold, so pretty much anything will be different and ‘ok’ it’s just a mental thing for myself I guess)…to be honest I’m completely torn and driving myself crazy!! I love the Asscher because no one around here seems to have one, I like the Emerald cut (because of the steps…like an Asscher) but I like the square look more than the rectangle.
I’ve looked at the post you started, I love to see everyone’s Asschers, but I am a little nervous because they face up smaller but I’m sure when I see one on my hand I’ll just love it!!

If you are getting an asscher, just get bigger than you would normally want, especially if it’s an Asha. Mine is 2.5 carats, but that is like 1.67 in diamond weight. Ashas are also cut super deep. My stone is very high set, and it cannot be set any lower in this particular setting because that is as far as it will go down. I was told by a jeweler that asschers are a shallow cut, but with an Asha, this is not the case.
