Circlets?

I was reading about circlets, and ended up more confused than enlightened. On the Arreat Summit, it said
Circlets have a special magic ability which allows players to receive a higher level magical Prefixes and Suffixes on Monster Drops and when Gambling on Circlets. This bonus only applies to the bonuses that appear on Circlets themselves. This does not help generate better Magic Prefixes and Suffixes on other items. So when you receive a Circlet via Gambling or a Monster drop the Magic Level helps increase the chances that a better Magic Prefix or Suffix will appear on it.
Does that mean that if you are wearing a circlet when you fight or gamble your odds are better of getting a better magic item, or is it saying that that circlets, when they drop, tend to be higher level? Or something else entirely?

IIRC, circlets spawn with a higher item level, therefore better mods can spawn on it.

Circlets (+3), Coronets (+8), Tiaras (+13) and Diadems (+18) all have a property exclusive to the circlet selection (listed in brackets above). This magic level changes the item_Lvl (iLvl) by simulating a different spawn.

Remember the iLvl = mLvl rule when working with monsters and the iLvl = cLvl -5/+4 when gambling. Say a level 50 monster drops a Circlet - the iLvl of the circlet is not 50, but 50+3 (53). The magic level is added to the mLvl or cLvl of the monster/character in question thereby changing the item's level - and the mods that can spawn on it.
