Dr. Reg Williams is a self-taught faceter who started teaching himself faceting a about 4 years ago.  He said, "I love competing with myself to see if I can facet a beautiful gem!  I am passionate about faceting, but you could have put on a pin-head what I knew about gemology."  

Since his career was in health care and he did research in stress and depression, he decided to pursue a course in gemology and is now an ISG Registered Gemologist.  He is Professor Emeritus at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. 

All of his students called him Dr. Reg, and the name stuck.  He is a member of the Midwest Faceters' Guild, the United States Faceting Guild, and the Huron Hills Lapidary & Mineral Society.
