Of all the Japanese earthquake/tsunami relief apparel I have seen, the piece that caught my eye is the B-Side Japan Relief necklace. B-Side has released this simple sterling silver necklace inscribed with the public law code for the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, an act which ended national-origin quotas in the United States created by the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1924.

For those of you that need a quick history lesson, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 abolished the Immigration Act of 1924, a law enacted to try and curb European and Asian immigration. I love the B-Side Japan Relief necklace for its simple design and symbolic message of unity. The necklace sells for $60, with half of that going to the American Red Cross.
