In general, item levels are completely auxiliary. They have no gameplay effect and I don't even think most traders care about them.

Item levels exist for collectors to obsess about. Special numbers tend to be more sought-after than others, such as 1, 77, 99, or 100.

Often times these collectors will try to obtain a full set of gear with matching levels. So...there is no difference between any items based on level other than what people attribute to them.
