It is up to you, whether you open a locker or not or shift your jeweleries at your parent's custody. Generally Locker is a safety place than Almirah in the house. and for safety the general people kept their valuable articles in the Locker. It is not a bad suggession, if they force you to open a locker in your name and mainly handal by you. If they forced you to open a locker in joint name, then it will be treated for their malafide intention. then you do not open it.

Ok just rent a locker at your nearest bank branch in your name and make your husband the nominee.Dont make your husband the joint owner of the locker because he may take it out in your absence and sell it.Hope if you do this then your in laws would be happy.
Thanks.
