JTV Real vs. Fake

Tonight I was browsing Jewelry Television's website,, looking at rings. For the fun of it, sorted all the rings with the highest priced one first. It was a 12.02 carat tanzanite ring set in white gold and surrounded by diamonds for $9,999. Interestingly, JTV offers a ring for $64.88, which looks very, very similar to the one for ten grand. This ring is a simulated sapphire ring from their Bella Luce collection. If you haven't already guessed, the ring on the left is the simulant, and the one on the right is the real deal. Can you see a big visible difference between the two rings? Is the difference with over $9,900?
