A basic principle of antique renovation is that whatever you do, a future generation must be able to undo.  So do not use superglue!!

Generally, gemstones are held in with claws and only a jeweller can re-make ("re-tip") broken claws. However, pastes (and especially marquisates) are glued, and jeweller's cement is especially designed for this. Non-drip (it's a 'gel' rather than a liquid), easy to handle, and you can remove the stones at a future date should the jewellery need repairing (lever the stone out, scrape away the residue of gel).
