    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 853/868/L=08/1437)

    When the father has given the jewelry to his daughter without demand then there is no need to return them. Furthermore when the girl (your wife) is the owner of the jewellery, then she only has the right to return it, you have no right to return it.
