Can you recommend an oil rubbed bronze faucet?

I am looking for an ORB faucet for a powder room. My features I want are:

-Reliable brand
-As dark as possible
-Transitional or traditional in style
-Hopefully won't break the bank

I am ordering Delta for the rest of my fixtures, but their ORB faucets have red decorative rings. I am really looking for something more dark and less showy.

Any suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks!

I thought I wanted ORB -- but then I discovered that Moen makes a matte black called Wrought Iron. I love it. It's dark, but doesn't have the red/copper accents that sometimes show or wear through on some ORB finishes.

Here is a link that might be useful: Moen

I think their is one called Brizio...I think by Delta.

Check out Newport Brass, which makes a finish that is about the same color brown as the Delta, but without the copperish highlights. The previous owners of my home had installed Delta ORB in the shower, but left a god-awful chrome handheld with it. I hated the Delta handheld, so wound up ordering the Newport Brass, which are nice solidly made products at a price which isn't cheap, but isn't an absolute killer, like some others.
