Here are the differences in gold materials:
Fine Gold isn't pure gold when you buy fine jewelry. It usually has other alloys (metals) in it. Only gold marked 24 Kt. is 100% gold. Also called pure gold. 12Kt. would have half as much gold content as 24Kt. gold. 10/12/14/18 Kt. Gold are alloys of gold.
Gold Filled has 50-100,000 times more gold in than in gold plate. A 14/20 Gold Filled pendant is usually considered a lifetime piece of jewelry. Some high quality gold-filled pieces have the look, luster, and beauty of 14 karat (58%) gold. GF is considered fine jewelry and is the next best thing to solid gold. GF must equal at least 1/20 the weight of the total item. Rolled Gold is 1/2 as thick as gold layer. 1/40
Gold-plated metal has a very thin layer of gold on the surface of a base metal, usually applied by the process of electroplating. Plating makes the layer of gold a much thinner layer than Gold Filled, and it is most commonly plated with 10K gold.
