I work in a field
My flower has four petals
In fiction I'm gilded
My heart's made of metal

Who am I?

Edit: although @deepthought solved the riddle pretty quickly without additional help, here's a second verse I had prepared with more clues for those interested:

My friend makes the rules
We're good at construction
And oft used as tools
Please resume your deduction
