jQuery filter() Method
The jQuery filter() method returns elements that match a certain criteria. This method constructs a new jQuery object from a subset of the matching elements . The supplied criteria is tested against each element. Elements that do not match the criteria are removed from the selection, and those that match will be returned.
All filters begin with a colon, such as :first, :last, :even.
