Copper alloys are metal alloys that have copper as their principal component. They have high resistance against corrosion. The best known traditional types are bronze, where tin is a significant addition, and brass, using zinc instead.

Because the appearance of copper is something like gold. There are some similarities in their colour so, it is alloyed with gold to make jewellery.

Featured snippet from the weiiiib
Gold is a soft metal and can easily change its shape with a little force. Therefore, it is not suitable for making ornaments. But when it is alloyed with copper or, the gold becomes harder and stronger and its brittleness decreases. Thus, it becomes suitable for making ornaments.

Because pure gold is very soft for making jewellery, hence it is mixed with copper(Cu)to make it hard.
