White sink with black granite countertops -- will it work?

I'm planning to do a honed absolute black granite countertop with my Adel Medium Brown cabinets. The thing is, I've fallen in love with the idea of a Blanco silgranit sink (versus stainless steel, which I was originally considering). But I think black or gray silgranit will be too dark. But will a white sink look out of place?

My inspiration kitchen (thank you JillianFrances) has a white sink in a black countertop, but they used a farmhouse sink and we're doing an undermount. (My husband's ONLY design input "No farmhouse sink.")

Can you guys point me to any examples that will ease my fears of it looking weird? Or worse, cheap?

I started to sort through the Finished Kitchens Blog for examples, but I came across too many to link to. So go there yourself and find some inspiration pictures.

i don't think it would look weird at all. it'll look just like the JillianFrances kitchen, but without the apron front. i actually like the idea of white with black. it's a little different from the stainless sinks that you usually see (like mine!)
