Q.
What is the strongest and thinnest gold or gold-filled wire I can use on 1.2mm gold-filled chain. I use it to attach the clasp to each end. Thank you. I love your company...

A.
For a 1.2mm gold-filled chain, you will want the thickest wire that will easily thread through the last link. A length of 26-gauge, gold-filled half-hard wire will give you strength and yet allow you to form a secure connection from chain to clasp. That secure connection would be made with a double wrapped loop, connecting chain to clasp.
