Ownership Of Dowry

My question is regarding the ownership of dowry.

Who is the actual owner of dowry items (including furniture, ornaments, crockery etc) that the bride's parents gift her in wedding?

Who is the actual owner of ornaments that a bride receive from her in-laws in wedding?

Does the husband or the in-laws has any right on the dowry items? does the husband has any right to gift them to his family without concerning his wife's will?

Hope your answers will help me erase my confusions.
