Although almost any sort of fabric glue will work to adhere diamond studs to material, using one that it is made specifically for embellishment is preferable. When considering different glues, think about how often you will wash the item, what kinds of jewels you are using and the type of fabric. Note that while most glues claim to be safe to wash, there is a great deal of variance in their durability. It may be worth it to run some tests to see which would best fit your needs.
