Do daughters get their mother’s jewelry achar meah veesrim or are only sons the yorshim?
From a very technical aspect, the sons inherit and not the daughters. However, this is not so simply, and if the husband is still alive, he is the one who gets everything and he can choose to give it to his daughters. Additionally, many people make a halachic living will, in order to avoid such issues, and often the mother will gift these items to her daughters.
I am attaching a link to a booklet that discusses these issues. ESTATE PLANNING, WILLS, AND HALACHAH
Regardless, the personal advice of a competent Rov should be sought.
