This part was not included in the drain installation package I ordered for my rectangular Kraus glass vessel sink. When the sink was installed without it, it was wobbly, so I called overstock and they said that this ring is not a required part for the large sinks. So I went ahead and ordered one anyway and glad that I did. It does raise the sink up a little above the countertop, but it is now more stable and I think it makes the sink look better. So, while it's not necessary I would recommend getting one, especially if your sink wobbles.
The sinks are beautiful and they look awesome in our newly remodeled bathroom. It really has a touch of elegance. The vessel sinks and the new faucets along with the mounting rings fit perfectly. It really looks great on top of the new vanity. Loved the prices overstock has and I would recommend the site to anyone. .

This is a nice heavy, well made metal ring, unlike the flimsy plastic chrome colored ring that came with my vessel sink. I highly recommend that you purchase a ring like this Kraus when ever you are going to install a vessel sink, cause generally, the rings that come with vessel sinks, if any, are cheap and flimsy. I really like Kraus products. I have installed several of their faucets in my home.
Ordered this to go with Kraus Copper Pluto 12-mm Thick Glass Vessel Sink (which is gorgeous!). We were replacing a flat-bottomed vessel sink and didn't know whether we needed this, but definitely do for a rounded bottom sink like our new one. The ring is solid (antique) brass, very heavy and sits solidly on our granite countertop. The sink sits up a bit higher so the ring really shows off the sink. This is a definite winner.
