Ownership of jewellery after divorce

Q: Following a divorce, what is the law on jewellery? Who becomes the rightful owner?

A: The jewellery is normally given as a present to the bride. And when it is given to her as a gift then it is her property. There should not be any question coming up as to whose property it is.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
