According to Wikipedia:

Gold plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold onto the surface of another metal, most often copper or silver(to make silver-gilt), by chemical or electrochemical plating.  

Gold-filled jewelry, also known as “rolled gold” or “rolled gold plate” is composed of a solid layer of gold bonded with heat and pressure to a base metal such as brass. Some high quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as 14 karat (58%) gold. In the USA the quality of gold filled is defined by the Federal Trade Commission.

Gold filled will definitely hold up longer than plated, but it’s not solid gold.
