No overflow drain

I bought a Grane vessel sinks that looks like stone. Nice sink,but I didn't take into account that it has no overflow.My Moen fixture came with a overflow drain. I now remember my downstairs bathroon had the same problem,but the Moen drain had a piece you could leave out for a non-overflow drain. I went to Menards and they have no non-overflow drains,except for one that takes a rubber stopper.I'm not real hip about this sink getting any kind of chance to overflow. Should I just put the rubber stopper one from Menards in and throw away the stopper? This is upstairs,and more of a problem than the downstairs situation.

A word of caution: I frequently find at home inspections that the overflows on the newer vanity sinks can't keep up with the faucets...

Why can't they keep up? Is it because the overflow opening is too small? I noticed that some of the openings are about the size of a dime. In the old time sinks,you see a few vertical slots near the top.
