Gold-filled: also called rolled-gold. These jewelry items are not actually filled with gold. They are made of a base metal (usually brass or copper) covered by sheets of gold in a mechanical process. Effectively a thick coat of gold: the gold content is 5% or 1/20 of the total weight. Gold-filled items are used for your top-of-the-line jewelry. Made with 14kt gold, it is hard wearing. With reasonable care it will not peel or flake, and should last as long as solid 14kt gold. It is safe to wear for with most people who have sensitive skin.
