This vessel sink is more gorgeous than in the photo. The color is more vibrant red with splashes of gold and even some silver. I added a brused nickel faucet on a black granite vanity top and the look is stunning! The outside of the sink is black so be aware if you are adding it against a light counter. The drain plug that comes with the sink is a sleek pop-up style and also nice quality. I am very please with this purchase.
