Not all gold borders need to be ornate. We have several border design painted sinks on our website, decoratedbathroom.com which are geometric in nature and look great in a more contemporary bathroom or powder room. They can all be applied to any size of basin and work well on a white or biscuit sink. Because these design are metallic gold or silver, they would also be awesome on a black (or any color) sink. We are currently using American-made Bates & Bates sinks and they can be obtained in a large assortment of colors.

Gold Brick Border Painted Vanity Sink
The same sink in gold, little better photo, this time on a 17 x 14″ rear drain undermount vanity sink.
