I might be wrong, but I think the option --trusted-key does
what you want.

# man gpg|grep -e --trusted-key -A 7
--trusted-key long key ID
                 Assume  that  the  specified  key (which must be
                 given as a  full 8 byte key ID) is as  trustwor-
                 thy  as one of your own secret keys. This option
                 is useful if you don't want to keep your  secret
                 keys  (or  one of them) online but still be able
                 to check the validity of a given recipient's  or
                 signator's key.
