    There is a good chance they will close overnight. 

    The general rule with piercings is to keep the jewelry in them if you want to keep the piercing. 

    It takes a very long time for the body to get used to piercings.  You weren't born with holes in your ear, so your body wants to close them up as soon as you take out the jewelry.  This is why they close up so quickly if you take out the jewelry when they are still healing. 

    Keep jewelry in the piercings for a few years.  If you aren't willing to risk letting your piercings close up, don't leave the jewelry out.
