Twenty years ago, best friends Panin Khiatchai and Chalerm Bordinthornwatchara each started their own jewelry company and became successful gem tycoons. Panin has two sons, Chanon and Apirak, while Chalerm has two daughters, Wanruedee and Sasikarn.
Despite his success, Panin discovers his wife Kanlaya cheating on him with one of his best diamond craftsmen, Aroon. Kanlaya decides to leave him to be with her lover despite the tears and pleading from her sons. Due to her betrayal, over the years, Chanon grew up bitter and distrusting of women. Because his father and brother are both soft-hearted people, he had to learn to be hard and cold to protect them from anyone who tried to take advantage of them, especially women.
Chalerm, on the other hand, loved women and often cheated on his wife. One night, he raped one of their maids, Supa. Supa had just tendered her resignation as she was going to move with her husband. As a result of the rape, she ends up giving birth to a girl named Rasa. On her deathbed, she finally reveals to Rasa the truth of the circumstances of her birth.
After her mother’s death, Rasa vows to make her birth father beg for forgiveness from her mother at her funeral, but it was a challenge just to meet with him, let alone getting him to admit to the wrong he committed against her mother. Chanon, who happened to be present the first day Rasa showed up at Golden Jewelry Co., immediately pegged her as a con artist and helped security throw her out.
Circumstances lead Rasa and Chanon to become entangled in each other’s lives, and despite their opposing views in life, the two eventually fall for each other, even though Apirak is in love with Rasa and Chanon is betrothed to Sasi, Rasa’s half-sister. How will this love square end? Will Rasa ever be accepted by her birth father, and will Chanon ever learn to let go of the past and forgive his mother?
