    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 675/633=L/1429)

     

    While giving the bangles if he intended to give it as mehr (dower) then he can count in the same. If he indented nothing, then obviously it was a gift, not mehr, and once it is gift it can not be converted to mehr:

    ولو بعث الی امراتہ شیئاً و لم یذکر جھۃ المھر کقولہ لشمع او حناء، ثم قال: انہ المھر لم یقبل ۔۔۔ لوقوعہ ھدیۃ فلا ینقلب مھراً (کذا فی الدر المختار)

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
