The goldsmith team of the kleine Rheinperle in Basel

Our motto: “In a time of fast life and mass production, we would like to contribute with our handmade individual pieces so that individuality continues to be lived and beautiful things are more enjoyed.”


We are proud to have been there for our customers for over 15 years. During this time we have established a permanent place in the Basel goldsmith landscape. We have invested a lot in a wide range. We have a sizeable stock of raw gemstones and manufacture pieces of jewelry according to your individual wishes. We manufacture pieces of jewelry based on your retina, making us the only ones in the world to have this protected concept.


Stefan Wacha – Goldsmith & Jewelry Designer

I am a jewelry designer with heart and soul. The retina jewelry idea came out of my urge to create something completely unique. A piece of jewelry that can only exist once, that is tailor-made for each customer (or their partner) because of their unique and ultra-personal retina and therefore cannot be duplicated. It is my favorite project, which I developed in 2016 and have since presented to a high-quality audience at numerous international trade fairs in Germany and abroad. The fact that this concept is enjoying an ever-growing fan base proves that more and more people are looking for something really unique and personal as an expression of their individuality. As the only goldsmith in the world who offers and manufactures this jewelry in various precious metals (gold, platinum, silver) and has protected this special jewelry throughout Europe, we are now happy to have numerous customers from all over the world.

Originally a biologist, I was looking for a creative challenge and found my calling in jewelry design and goldsmithing. Together with my wife Marlen, I have been running the small Rheinperle in Basel since 2007, which also had branches in Zurich and Riehen.

A while ago, mechanical wristwatches started to fascinate me more and more. Whether hand-wound or automatic with complications – this began a completely new chapter as a challenge to expand your own range of jewelry with the highest quality, hand-made and of course individualized Swiss wristwatches.

Our quality work is unique

With the help of our modern CAD jewelry design software, the possibilities are almost endless to design individual customer requests for unusual jewelry designs. As a customer, you can enjoy a photo-realistic 3D animation that allows you to see exactly what to expect from us before placing your order.

We master modern and traditional techniques

We spend many hours in highly concentrated work at the microscope of our modern laser. We also carry out delicate repairs on filigree pieces of jewelry where soldering is not possible due to sensitive gemstones or valuable pearls.

Our own engraving laser engraves your jewelry with technical perfection. It enables us to carry out your orders promptly without your piece of jewelry having to leave our workshop.

Marlen Wacha – Goldsmith & Juwel Setter

Marlen Wacha is a goldsmith and still likes to sketch jewelry ideas by hand on paper. It holds brilliants, topazes, sapphires, aquamarines, corals – actually all gemstones from our fund or stones that you bring us. She has the fine touch and the keen eye to carry out precise spot welding, for example. Their many years of experience also ensure that even the most complicated repairs to your jewelry are carried out professionally. When it comes to creative solutions or clever ideas, we always consult each other to get the most out of our two different minds for you. This is how we support you together in the implementation of your jewelry wishes.
