French singer-songwriter Charles Dumont, who wrote the music to one of Edith Piaf's top hits, appealed Sunday for the return of precious mementos that were stolen from his Paris apartment.

"They took a lot of money but especially my souvenirs of Edith," Dumont, who wrote the music to the 1960 hit "Non, Je ne Regrette Rien" (No, I Have No Regrets), told the Paris daily Le Parisien.

The objects were in a safe that was ripped out of its place and removed from the apartment while Dumont, who is in his early 80s, was touring in Canada, the report said.

"The robbers took enough things of value. I ask them simply to return a few souvenirs to me, those of Edith and then also my father's wedding ring which I inherited a few years ago when he died," said Dumont.

"They can put them in an envelope and send them to my address," he said, listing a gold watch engraved with her signature and a pair of cufflinks as among gifts from the diminutive Piaf, a cultural icon in France and an international star who died in 1963 aged 47.

The total value of the haul was estimated at nearly 200,000 euros ($260,000), Le Parisien said.
