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 Darling Husband 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. Fiance 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?

@KateRBels:

 

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.
