Your piercings can shrink back down after stretching them, as long as you do not stretch them too fast. If you stretch your piercing to fast you can cause a tear in your piercing that will develop scar tissue. The key to keeping a happy piercing is to stretch slowly.
Body Jewelry By The Chain Gang has Double Ended Stretching Crescents which you see to the left and are great to very slowly stretch to another gauge. It is a slow process, but you will not tear your piercing either which other then the obvious, will also help you if you should ever want to let your piercing shrink down some.
